Hawkings’ Greatest Mystery

Yahoo news ran a Reuters newswire story today that was all in the headline, and I’ll admit, it worked on me. Apparently, of all the mysteries of the universe, a subject that Stephen Hawkings thinks of quite a bit to good effect, women are still a mystery to Stephen Hawkings. The quote that generated the brief article is “Women. They are a complete mystery.” As one of those mysterious critters, may I make a small suggestion? As long as Hawkings thinks of women as “they” instead of “us,” he will continue to be mystified.
