Not Finicky About Language

May 11, 1993

Regarding Duffy the Cat at the Channel Isles Books postal station (April 30): I was ready to support Duffy and the station's operator Judy O'Sullivan until I read that Port Hueneme Postmaster Barry Hancock said that "it's not proper to have the cat laying on the counter."

The postmaster is right. It's not proper. Even in our permissive age Duffy has gone too far. Now, if Duffy were only "lying on the counter" . . . well, that would be proper.
