We recently received a letter (see letters to the editor this issue) that basically said men should learn to cook and sew while women should learn to handle a screwdriver and change a tire.

Oft times I get letters and they are put in the Letters To The Editor column but I think this one belongs right here because it is something that concerns each and every one of us.
