Talk about Wiki

IIRC Wiki means quick in Hawaiian and it sure is. Kate Brown will be sworn in as governor of Oregon on Wednesday and the Wikipedia already includes her on its list of female US state governors. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_female_governors_in_the_United_States#List_of_Female_State_Governors from which I learn that the first states to have female governors were Wyoming, Texas and Alabama. Of course. I also find it odd that, this time last year, four of six female governors were Republicans. Jan Brewer (R Az) retired, so next Wednesday there will be as many Democratic as Republican female governors. Other than the Wikipedia, most news organizations have mainly focused on the fact that Gov. (next Wed.) Brown is openly bisexual.
