Hootie Johnson Quotes



[As Martha Burk can attest, Johnson is not the most tender of pen pals. He blew off Wyman in a response dated Nov. 22.] Obviously I was disappointed to receive your letter, ... Although I respect your right to disagree, I must tell you that the Executive Committee unanimously adopted our present position on membership, and the overwhelming majority of our members are in complete agreement. I want you to also know that there is no timetable for the admission of women into our membership, nor do I expect there to be one in the foreseeable future. If you feel compelled to resign, we will certainly understand. I hope, however, you will continue to respect the rights of the rest of the membership.
