Babes was first in line to affirm autonomy and fidelity and freedom of information. Over and over, in public, Babes has declared how important it is to analyse what women do. Babes has always been an expert witness when it comes to assessing who failed and who succeeded. Ria takes no notice of what Babes says. Ria believes in ordinary life. In the piecemeal of the daily round, therefore, we do what everyone else does: we meet in restaurants, go to movies, swan in and out of pubs and clubs, sit in meetings, talk on the phone.

I know well enough that being a first class bitch doesn’t, among sane people, incur the death penalty. According to convention, Babes doesn’t deserve to die.
