    I'd like to think that you're right, Kevin, but I have my doubts. Much as I love old McGee, I never knew him to waste any of his ruminating on whether he dipped his wick too frequently or indiscriminately. He always appeared to believe he was doing some sweet lass a favor when he took her to bed, chased away her bad dreams, relieved all her tension, restored her good humor, and showed her the proper rhythm for the horizontal bop.
    His partner numbers could have rivaled those of Wilt Chamberlain and I doubt it would have troubled him. Methinks he saw promiscuous women as the candidates for "death stink," and men as merely good-naturedly randy. In other words, I don't think he'd have ever made the gender substitutions that you did in the text.
