I loved the SoH in this piece and the fact that the author (obviously an established professional herself) managed to bring WEF a teeny bit down from the ivory towered mountains that it is perched on.

Anya – You could probably add another para on: Does one’s sense of humour get heightened or hacked at Davos :)

Oh no. Fat chance of that. They’re about as Stepford as you get. If this article doesn’t prove it, I don’t know what does.

I guess we can take solace in the fact that their hubris will be their undoing. They think living in bubbles behind walls and guns will protect them.

To bad they didn’t attend the seminar in H1N5, Superflu and the mad scientists working on it.

Unless they’re not human (which I believe is entirely possible) they’re biology will be as susceptible to extinction as ours.

Life (or death) always finds a way…

To heck with how many women ATTEND/LISTEN to panels; why aren’t more women LEADING them? No wonder the U.S. can’t elect a woman president–discrimination against women is deeply, deeply ingrained.

I think the woman whose husband made the comment about drilling for oil beneath glaciers missed that one…

Hopefully you Davos Wives (nod to Stepford Wives?) can talk some sense into the men that are, in general, laying waste to the earth and sea in their pursuit of profit.

Thanks for setting women back a good half-century.

Enjoy your cake, ma’am
