More on sexism. A couple of chaps from
Blue Bell, Pa., write that "as ardent
supporters of the women's liberation move
ment" they categorically reject the word
woman, citing as their reason, as many
have cited before, its inclusion of the
sexist term man.
"In seeking a replacement," they say,
"we took the following steps:
1. Change woman to woperson (this
was obviously rejected because of the
blatant inclusion of the sexist term son).
2. Change woperson to woperdaughter."
The letter was signed M. Timmerman

Simultaneously, hunger pangs and the

of several almost-private dining rooms.
Immediately we were tempted by fresh
sauteed mushrooms and, after much delib

these delicious pacifiers, we were left to

tantalizing cuisine and amicable service
promotes an evening at the Cork 'n Cleaver
as a memorable experience.
