Spencer: If you are still here, please read this post. Everyone else can't be attacking you for no reason. Why use the term spinster. It's a derogatory and demeaning term that was not required to explain your grade school teachers. Those women were young once and most were probably very pretty. Did you know their past or did you just assume since they were old that they were "spinsters"? It reminds be of an episode of "Curb Your Enthusiasm" when Larry David buys a doll for a little girl's birthday party and embarrasses his wife by stating that the dark skinned doll is a 'mulatto". Those words, while once were common place are now seen as demeaning. Also, this being the "Brooklyn Board" you insult Yankee fans by stating that Red Sox fans are the most knowledgeable and best fans in baseball while insulting the old Yankee Stadium. I guess that that remark came back to haunt you when Adam Jones of the Orioles was insulted in Fenway by "fans" shouting racist remarks at him. Many African American players said that this only occurs in Fenway Park! Then you ask that how can an ex Dodger fan ever become a Yankee fan when the Dodgers left Brooklyn. That was an easy choice when you're a nine year old. I thought that other posters on the Brooklyn Board showed a lot more restraint than you did.
