    Quite a few years ago (late 80's maybe) there was a letter-to-the-editor in MR from a woman complaining about how wives in general were depicted in MR, either complaining over the husbands time or "cooing over the itty bitty choo choo (barf)". This woman's husband was a model railroader, she was into tropical fish and horseback riding, so while she had to deal with plaster and sawdust, he had to deal with meal-worms in the fridge and manure-covered leggings in the bedroom. She said she'd defy any model railroader to beat her at making a mess.

    Obviously this letter made a big impression on me, since I don't think I read it since it appeared probably 15 or so years ago.
