Letter Curious wording

Updated 6/12/2023 11:55 AM

I think a reasonable expectation for a newspaper is to correctly judge the importance of the news of any day. Imagine my surprise as I read the article on wildfire smoke by Allyson Chiu of The Washington Post in the Daily Herald on June 8. She reported that the smoke is particularly dangerous for "pregnant women and other pregnant individuals." Talk about burying the lead -- it is apparent that now non-women can become pregnant.

This is a first for humanity and nothing at all in the headlines about it. How did this happen? What new biological processes have been adapted? Unless there is definitive proof of such revolutionary adaptations, this undermines your trustworthiness.
