      (This post is for the guys only. All you gals need to go find a shirt
      to iron, or something to cook, or whatever...)

      So, will the BHS hire the best person for the Director of Music &
      Education position, or only the best male applicant? I noticed the
      listing discriminates against the fairer sex right from the giddyup:

      "Job Opening: Director of Music and Education

      This position requires:
      Membership in the Barbershop Harmony Society.

      Unless the BHS is prepared to make an exception in this instance, it
      is hardly an equal opportunity, given this particular requirement
      eliminates 50% of the population. How clever.

      Really, are we still that far behind? Good Grief! We need a manager,
      an imaginative, humble servant of the style to keep us going and move
      us forward. I'll admit it's only partially sarcastic to say I believe
      ANYTHING would be an improvement over the last regime. It's a matter
      of commitment!
