"I'd like to know why Mrs. Reagan makes the front page (above the fold) about the borrowed dresses, and is covered in Style (below Sukhreet) when she's addressing the U.N. on an important issue, which in fact alters the U.S. position on the developing countries who produce and ship drugs.
"It has long been a sexist issue that if a woman makes a speech, or even if a government official makes and important talk to a women's group, it goes to Style. Should we change this ancient attitude?"
