(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

More to the point, are there qualified women or 'minorities' who
would resist applying for a position without such 'encouragement?'
