Where authors and readers come together!
Dear Senator Boxer:
Your conduct toward two very fine gentlemen ...
you are aware, I'm sure, to whom I'm referring was sophomoric and offensive. Why did you not upbraid Mr. Alford for using the same expression of RESPECT the general had previously used? Caught too much heat for it, did you?
I'm sending the dictionary.com link for the definition of "ma'am". Please find the definition of a term of respect for a lady.
To paraphrase Mark Levin, the general's "error" was in assuming he was addressing a "lady"-an identity to which you have amply demonstrated to the world you cannot lay claim.
