R.B. Huffman: Gender mistakes

Just a gentle reminder that Rep. Rayne Brown, star of your March 9 editorial “Crossing the line” is a female legislator. “He” is not “doing it for truckers.” She is. (I won’t judge the wisdom of tractor trailers being able to safely pass slow cars on the curvy secondary roads where I experience most double-yellow lines.)

Granted Rayne is an unusual – perhaps androgynous – name (unlike Rep. Becky Carney, who was quoted in the editorial gender-correctly). But you should get to know her – and all the women on both sides of the aisle who crossed the gender double line to serve our state!
