Subject: Barbara Walters story

Don't have a clue if this is a true story or not, but it's cute.


Barbara Walters of 20/20 (USA-ABC Television) did a story on gender roles in Kabul, Afghanistan, several years before the Afghan conflict.

She noted that women customarily walked 5 paces behind their husbands.

She recently returned to Kabul and observed that women still walk behind their husbands.

From Ms. Walters vantage point, despite the overthrow of the oppressive Taliban regime, the women now seem to walk even further behind their husbands and are happy to maintain the old custom.

Ms. Walters approached one of the Afghani women and asked, "Why do you now seem happy with the old custom that you once tried so desperately to change?"

The woman looked Ms. Walters straight in the eyes and without hesitation, said: "LAND MINES"

MORAL OF THE STORY: "BEHIND EVERY MAN IS A SMART WOMAN WITH A PLAN!"
