I am trying to maintain decorum as I respond to Mr. Shiflett’s April 12, 2002 column on New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd. This was a sexist personal attack. Mr. Shiflett could not possibly know what it is like for a potential mate to feel threatened or powerless because of the other’s salary or career.
He writes “….all those aggressive female primates, after a busy day of dominating their jungle, were primed for sex, not for the withholding of it.” Why does everything comes down to sex?
Mr. Shiflett makes it worse by equating Ms. Dowd to a primate at the Bronx Zoo. This is disgusting.
I will not bow down to his level by commenting on the author of the article, even if he comes from a small town as Midlothian, Virginia. Obviously, there is not much to do in this town!p>Thank you. br> — D. Derow br> Philadelphia, PA /p>
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
