Margaret Wente Does Statistics

 ...but rather poorly, I'm afraid:

 If the Justice Bureau’s figures are “the best,” and good enough for Pinker, why does Wente cast doubt on them when a women’s group cites them? She fails to recognize that the data on the AAUW’s website are taken from the Justice Bureau at all...

She also muffs the attribution of a couple of quotes, but that's par for the course for Ms. Wente.

And contrats to Carol for getting a piece in The Mark.  The dark glasses are a nice touch; they make her look bad-ass.
