There is a lot of coverage in today's newspapers about Harriet Miers. The Chron has an interesting box called "Miers' demographics" about a 60-year old woman who has never been married. According to the Chron, she is one of 796,000 US women between the ages of 55 to 64 who have never married. Does it matter? The Chron does say that US Supreme David Souter has also never been married. When Souter was appointed, did the Chron run a box on "Souter demographics?" Probably not.
