Wednesday's Westport News quotes Planning and Zoning Commission Chairwoman,Cathy Walsh as saying, "Every woman loves to sit around and eat, drink and shop." What an inane and insulting brush she chose with which to paint women -- all women.

Had a male chair of any board or commission in this town come up with such a foolish, insulting and air-headed generalization about women, he would have been pilloried and chided to the point of resignation.

Walsh truly owes her own sex an apology and herself some introspection.
