I read this article and had to share it. The political incorrectness is delicious:
The mayor of an Australian outback mining town has come under fire for urging unattractive women to move in, assuring them they will find a man because there is a shortage of women.
John Moloney, mayor of Mount Isa in northwestern Queensland, told a newspaper his town was a place for “ugly ducklings to flourish into beautiful swans” and called on the “beauty-disadvantaged” to flock there.
In the face of outrage over his remarks, Moloney stood by his comments, saying he did not mean to cause offence but wanted to highlight the gender imbalance in the remote town of some 25,000 people.
“Well I said beauty disadvantaged,” he told national radio. “Now beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Beauty can be a good set of teeth, beauty is nice wavy hair. Beauty can be blue eyes or green eyes.
“There is such a thing as disposition, temperament, manners, general attractiveness, attitude and demeanour, all those things tend to make a person attractive.”
My, my. So, in a place that’s like Alaska–remote and male-dominated–the mayor is asking the ugly women, “beauty disadvantaged” (snort), to move in where they’ll have a chance. Oftentimes, it tends to be the butch women who like braving the butch climes so it could all work out.

Hey, by the way dear readers, did you know that you can click on my name next to my picture and links list and see all my posts? John changed that yesterday, I guess, and I thought I’d let you know. You can do that with any of your favorite authors. Have a good one!
