Gilman" Subject: common sense The questioned phraseology of the definition using the word _men_ was written in the 1950s when people understood that _man_ had more than one meaning. Dictionary editors generally have enough problems to cope with in the revision of succeeding editions that attending to the desires of the blinkered outlook of the determinedly PC-minded can be overlooked.
