Dear Cheryl,
   You seem very bitter and perhaps justifiably so considering your past 
experiences.  But is there any consideration left in your heart for those 
honest, hardworking souls whom you collectively slandered above (i.e., 
"they're called professors") who don't aspire to the conduct that left you 
so embittered?  Did every "male" professor treat you in that way, or 
perhaps just the sordid one in question? 
  Wish you well,
Regards, Peter (I just hate being lumped in there with the crud)
