Congratulations to Judge Carolyn McHugh on her confirmation to the 10th Circuit Court bench ("Senate confirms first Utah woman to 10th Circuit Court bench," Tribune, March 12).

I do wonder why the writer of the article thought it necessary to bring up her pregnancy status from the early 1980s. When was the last time a male nominee's due date was of such grave importance?

No dang wonder people outside our borders think we're an odd bunch.
