"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free....... ~Ronald Reagan~

Just When You Thought You Heard It All!!

TARANTO, Italy -- Mianne Bagger on Wednesday became the first transsexual golfer to qualify for the Ladies European Tour. The 37-year-old Dane shot a 5-over-par 77 to finish tied for ninth after four rounds in qualifying school at the Riva dei Tessali golf club. Bagger made history at the women's Australian Open last March, becoming the first transsexual to play in a pro golf tournament. The Ladies European Tour changed its rules earlier this year to eliminate the "female at birth" in its membership policy. The rule change put the golf tour in line with the International Olympic Committee regulations on transgender athletes. Is nothing sacred?
