Transcript "Excuse me," interrupted Hartman, "that's an unfortunate choice of words- the two sides-that's not the idea, is it?" "What I'm trying to say is that some have urged people not to work with the committee and the president—I'm certainly urging them to do so," explained Wed- dington. Throughout the interview, Weddington remained "serene, gracious, grave and dignified." (That's how Molly Ivins described her in a Ms magazine profile (February 1979). Other Weddington attributes noted by Ivins include, "organized, ambitious, a compulsive worker, and, depending on whom one consults, either stubborn as hell or possessed of a core of steel." Whether the president made the right decision in firing Abzug or not, it is evident from the news reports that the manner in which it was done left much to be desired. And even when it came to reporting on public reaction to the events, the White House press office seems to have fudged ever so slightly. On the Monday, press secretary Jody Powell announced that, for the first two hours the comment office was open that day, 87 percent of the comments received were in support of Carter. No report was given on telegrams received over the weekend. When a Houston woman called the White House to ask about the telegrams. She was told there would be a report on them Tuesday. Indeed there was. It showed that of the telegrams received over the weekend, 52.89 percent opposed the firing, while 39.51 percent supported the President. Naturally, Tuesday's report was not given as much attention by the press as Monday's. As reported by Martin Schram, the firing of Bella Abzug was seen as good politics by Jordan, Rafshoon and company, as well as being personally satisfying. As one top-level assistant explained, "It's very frustrating around here. You get kicked from all sides and there's not much you can do to get back. But suddenly this was something that could be done-swiftly, decisively-to take care of someone who was really sticking it to us." Females constitute 27.7 percent of the United States population. Half of them are teenagers or in their twenties. They wear revealing outfits, jiggle a lot, but don't do much else. More than a third are unemployed or without identifiable pursuit or purpose. Most others are students, secretaries, homemakers, household workers or nurses. For every one who is in law enforcement, at least two are criminals. This is the composite portrait of the American woman painted by television drama, according to a newly-released study by the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights. The report, "Window Dressing on the Set: An Update," looks at the way TV portrayed women in the period 1975-77, and studies 1977 employment data for 40 major-market commercial and public television stations. It compares the findings with those of the last report, issued in August, 1977, on the years 1969-74. Nothing seems to have changed-"Sex stereotyping in television drama continues," says the report. In the employment area, it concludes that white male domination still runs across the board, particularly in the decision-making process. Citing a general failure of the television industry to equalize opportunities for women and minorities, or to portray them fairly, the report calls on the Federal Communications Commission to conduct a public inquiry to investigate further the issues raised in the report. Median Income, N.M.-The mad rippist has struck again. Ida Mae Makegood of South Neilsen Street told police yesterday that a nattily dressed man sporting a Los Angeles tan burst into a laundromat, grabbed a blouse she was about to presoak and tore it to shreds while onlookers watched in helpless astonishment. Police say the man struck earlier in the week at another laundromat, ravaging a silk shirt and a pair of imported underpants before absconding. They believe he may be the same fiend who is tormenting women in other laundromats by threatening to take the whitener out of the fabric softener they use. Carcinogen, 111.-Mrs. Olson's reign of terror has come to an end. Federal agents, on her trail for months, finally apprehended the aging Swedish immigrant and booked her for breaking and entering as she made her 423rd unannounced appearance in an American kitchen. Authorities say the woman was under the delusion that she had improved the sex lives of the dozens of couples by reforming their coffee-making procedures and steering them to the richest and most aphrodisiacal brand. Popes Say the Darndest Things: "The simple joys of the poor, in the humble shacks of the peasants, the Indians, the immigrants" are still present in the midst of suffering, Pope John Paul II told a crowd of 200,000 in Puebla, Mexico. He had just swept in from Mexico City, down 80 miles of superhighway reserved for the entire day just for him. It's a wonder he wasn't too pooped to pope. Hold on to your (cowboy) hats-I feel a trend coming on. "The Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders," an ABC movie that aired in January, was the highest- rated movie of the season so far. "The Girls in the Office" (ABC, Feb. 2) was of the same calibre-absolutely awful-so it too should do well. Filmed in Houston, mainly at the Galleria, it was billed as "an intimate look at their hidden lives. The passionate games they play for power . . . and for love. The men at the top . . . and the GIRLS IN THE OFFICE." Texas is to the seventies what California was to the sixties, and sleaze is to ABC what spinach is to Popeye-so watch out. \fil5o visir oor Neu) -mot Oritil 8 t'flns iueicccnei Ot/AJLflVK m-MLflBftrrw] The car that deserves a second glance.
