70. Very good!

I can relate. Yes, I can!

My paternal grandfather came here from the Old Sod in the 1870s. In traditional Irish society, women played an equal, though not exact, role as men. This was one reason for the hatred the Irish immigrants encountered.

Growing up, connections on my maternal side resulted in my spending a lot of time at the Onondaga Nation, where women play an equal, though not exact, role as men. I'm sure that this played a role in the conflicts the Onondaga had with the European boat people.

I think these factors influenced me. But it really was having daughters that fully civilized me.
