Killed Her a B'ar when She Was Only Eight

The first bear kill of the Maryland hunting season was made by an 8-year-old girl, notes Joel Achenbach's blog.
It's quite an interesting news story that makes one wonder what values many of us are teaching our kids these days. Just as interesting, however, are the comments, which at least in one case deals with gender stereotyping:
I think that it is important for our kids and especially our girls to experience life and if part of life is killing game, then so be it. After all, if our girls just sit in their little bubble wearing pretty dresses and playing Bach on the piano, we may just end up with lots of Condi Rice's (re: Eugene Robinson's Op Ed).
The blog got lots of comments -- many more than my measly entry will.
