Sir:
If someone you interviewed made a racist statement, you might print it, or you might not. You would definitely not use it in a picture caption. Yet when Ivy-educated amateur heavyweight champion Henry Milligan (The Ivy's Irish Pug, March 19) sees fit to make sexist comments, you print them not once, but twice, including a caption ["The book on Milligan's culinary skill is that he needs a girl friend or a microwave"].

If Henry can't cook, he needs a microwave or cooking lessons. What would happen if he depended on a girl friend and then, horrors, she couldn't cook. Or refused to cook for him unless he cooked for her! I hope he does win an Olympic medal. It will give him something to hock so he can buy a microwave.

Sir:
I hereby volunteer myself to be Henry Milligan's girl friend. Anybody as cute as he is shouldn't have to go hungry.
