I read with some surprise Darren Kilfara's recent poem ("Poetry in Motion," sports column, May 5, 1994). In particular, the line about Rodman's technical fouls was offensive: "To hear him then whine, sounded quite like a 'she'."
No doubt, some women often whine. But this is an example of the old error, well-hashed over in modern circles; this sort of sexism has no place in The Crimson or anywhere else.
In the past, I have greatly enjoyed Kilfara's sparkling commentary, especially this past season's scintillating men's hockey coverage.
Perhaps you might assign him to cover some women's sports, so that he might see and report first-hand that our Radcliffe athletes posses dignity, courage and integrity. David Filippi '94
