Yesterday I posted Another Favorite Bill Buckley story. It’s drawn two responses I hope help start your weekend with a smile.
The Buckley story:
During the 1970s a woman member of congress wanted to do away with the traditional usages of “congressman” and “congresswoman.” She favored the gender-neutral “congressperson.”First response:
Buckley didn’t favor her proposal but said he was willing to consider supporting it once the congresswoman, Elizabeth Holtzman, changed her name to Holtzperson.
I've always wondered why women don't want to be called "wopersons."And the second:
I still prefer "Congressthieves"
