I wish to apologize to any of the women on the list who
may have perceived any sort of condescension in the use
of term "ladies" to describe my students (this was very
nicely pointed out to me by one of our fellow bgreekers).

As I said to that person, I've used the term for 25 years
as a term of respect for women (esp., my wife and 3
daughters) and it never even occurred to me that the
cultural perception of the term had changed...evidently
so !! So, again, apologies, and I will endeavor to not
use the term again.
