        (It must have been getting too boring on TAXACOM.)

        Yes, whether or not you agree with 'affirmative action' (which is at
least a consciousness-raising device), I've always thought it was odd that
an institution would advertise to applicants, "The affirmative action
committee is on our backs." It doesn't paint a very attractive picture.
        More to the point, are there qualified women or 'minorities' who
would resist applying for a position without such 'encouragement?'
