Snow Phalli at Smith

Letter to the Editors

To the editors:

As a recent graduate of Amherst College, I can testify that snow-penis construction is a frequent Pioneer Valley phenomenon—at Smith College (News, “Ruined Snow Penis Stimulates Debate,” Feb. 24). I would be interested in hearing Keel’s opinions on those artifacts, as “forceful” males are in no way involved in their creation, and the people most likely to defend them from destruction would be their female creators.
