Goodness. It reminds me of a female colleague on my local city council who always gets on a high horse about wasting time on frivolous matters, then getting upset at a city employee referring to a “gentlemen’s agreement.”

Senator Boxer, you see, did not like being called “Ma’am” by a General.

So the men have no problem with “Sir,” but Miss Boxer does not like “Ma’am.”

We now must all start calling her “Ma’am,” and here are some delightful Dora the Explorer big girl panties (my 3 year old endorses them) you might want to send Senator Boxer.

The best address is 1700 Montgomery Street, Suite 240, San Francisco, CA 94111. If nothing else, it’s San Francisco. If she can’t use them, I’m sure some guy in San Francisco can.
