A word or two about the coverage

I guess there is no honeymoon phase for our newly elected senator (“Warren holds back with reporters,” Page A1, Nov. 12). She gave what you call “terse” responses to questions about her reaction to the fact that many women supported her and whether she intended to have a diverse staff. Perhaps it is the 1960s feminist in me, but I wonder, had her opponent won, would you have asked him about the fact that he had strong support from men or whether he would have women on his staff.

Having fought the fight more than 40 years ago to be recognized on merit not gender, I am feeling a bit terse myself.
