Of course, the grandma's name is [name omitted, as explained elsewhere].


Something else you might find interesting.  I am told that a local

journalist [name deleted--the attributed story is false] once took a class with

Ferrel at the U of A.  I am told that this fellow alleges that Ferrel would

frequently bring up his views on pornography, one of his favorite

observations being that since the representations of women in porn is so

much more frequent then men, this is obviously evidence that society is

biased...against men!. Apparently, he would get worked up into a tizzy on

this. [It seems no false tale was absurd enough to make the reporter question her ally's credibility. Having read the chapter in my book where I discuss gender equality, the reporter might at least have asked herself why, if I was indeed so "worked up" with the insane reasoning this one attributes to me, I didn't use that reasoning in the book--FC]  

[Name deleted] might be interesting to talk to...
