12:00 Question of the Week
" Recently, the Patriot Ledger ran the story of the 16 year old girl that went to a high school party, was 'outed' and beaten to death. Some how that story really got to me, even now I'm trembling and I'm misting. Anyway, the Ledger ran the story, via Associated Press, using boy pronouns. I wanted to 'storm' their office right away, but that's not lady like, and wont 'win' anything. I need your advise on how to proceed. Do I walk in ask to speak to the editor? Do I phone first? I don't feel quite like a spokes person, yet, but I'd like to some day, if it will help. Here's where I need your advise. I still feel like I should do something in her memory. "
