Playwright Goddess: Last night I was supposed to be out having drinks with Maccers, ET, Elizabeth, some guy whose face is always cloaked in shadow beneath a wide-brimmed fedora, and other assorted blog celebrities. Instead, I told them all I was working late and went out to dinner with The Most Important Woman Playwright since Lillian Hellman.

Only kidding. There are no important women playwrights, as one of Steve Sailer's correspondents has pointed out. Except maybe Wendy Wasserstein. "In 55 years of Tonys, women have won 2-1/2 [for writing]," Steve's correspondent writes.

So my question for the lit bloggers--and you know who you are--is: what up with that, yo?
