DO MEN RUN THE WORLD? As Scott Adams says, you shouldn’t get too excited because those are other men.

UPDATE: Okay, here’s the precise quote, worth breaking out:

Men live in a fantasy world. I know this because I am one, and I actually receive my mail there. We men like to think we’re in charge because most of the top jobs in business and government are held by men, but I have a shocking statistical insight for you men–THOSE ARE OTHER MEN. The total percentage of men in those top spots is roughly .0000001 percent of the male population. I’m not one of them. I just draw cartoons and write these stupid books. Chances are, if you’re a man reading this, you’re not running the world, either.

Indeed. It is also the case, as the column linked above notes, that the interests of those men who do run the world are often in some, er, tension with the interests of those who do not.
