This article was included in the National League of Women Voters Leaders' Update I received from National President Mary G. Wilson. I especially loved the first few paragraphs. For the entire article as printed in the Washington Post

I think the world might be a better place if it were run by the League of Women Voters. You may think, as I once did, that the League of Women Voters is just a bunch of little old ladies. But we ignore little old ladies at our peril, especially these ones.
League members are a little like Marines. Same drive. Same esprit de corps. And I don't think you're ever an ex-League member. Wrap them in camo, strap them into parachutes and drop them behind enemy lines and they'd get things done lickety-split.
