Letter: Concentrate on the message, not the shock
Hubbub and controversy; we thrive on it. Personally, I think Paul (Bunyan) and Gaea should take a dance together. Relax a bit folks and concentrate less on the shock and more on the message. Both of these pieces of statuary and their purposes, past and present, intended and inferred, are what's important.
Sexism and health care: Get used to thinking differently about it. Relax, but
be aware of what's real.
