To the Editor, FTW

This article from The Washington Post, formerly titled "Women Aren't Very Bright" and then renamed (to make it less offensive?) "How Dumb Can We Get?" had me fuming bad enough this morning that I emailed the autor & editor.

But this comment on Feministing made me laugh so hard:

To the Editor- I applaud your commitment to expanding the diversity of voices in the Outlook column. Might I suggest though, that a disclosure in the by line that "Charlotte Allen" is in fact the nom de plume of a 5th-grade boy would make the context of the piece much clearer.
