again, drama with the local paper

Well it seems that once again, the local paper made me come very close to writing another letter to the editor. But, I figured that since I don't live in Bath anymore, and since I just wrote a letter to the editor recently, that someone else could write in or people might think I have no life (I wouldn't want them to know the truth). Why? Well someone at the paper decided to give the following headline to an article about the upcoming performance of the Vagina Monologues at our local theatre: "The Vagina Monologues Opens for a One-Night Stand" What the hell kind of town do I come from anyway? Good god! Well thankfully today, there are two letters to the editor about the sexism of the headline (here is one of them). I'm glad others were also outraged. It is very cold and rainy here today. I'm happy I thought to bring a long-sleeved shirt and sweater. I spent the day helping mom get her website online. She officially a business owner today! I also spent the afternoon installing Quickbooks on her computer, and trying to wipe viruses and spyware from her PC. That was actually kind of novel, with my imac and ibook I never get to fool around with such stuff! Mom and Maryann are at the dress rehearsal for their dance show that I get to see this Saturday. Dad and I are heading to Fat Boy for dinner and some shopping. Maybe I'll read something for the prelim tonight, like Black Feminist Thought or Feminism & Postmodernism. Otherwise, I'll feel totally useless (academically speaking, anyway).
