I miss the Pretty Stewardess...

Some would say "ah, the good ol' days..." and Pop would start railing against women at the Academy.

Well that's enlightening. I think everyone is aware that there are occasional modifications to published works as time goes by in order to keep them relevant or not seem outdated. Some of the changes seem to make sense. It makes sense that more kids these days would be interested in growing up to be a scientist rather than a cowboy. There are much more job opportunities as a scientist. And it certainly makes sense to me to swap genders occasionally throughout the book. Some of the changes don't seem to make a whole lot of sense though. It's almost as if they had a quota of how many females to add.

I wonder where the gay people are though? I've seen wheelchairs and blind people in his books, but no gays. That's not right.

And just how can you tell which raccoon or bear is gay or not? Besides the elephant cowboy, of course....
