Who are these people? Maybe I have been in urbania too long and have lost
touch with the small town mentality, but I have never known anyone who would
address a female professor firmly ensconced in academia by anything less than
"professor"!! Frankly, I assume that anyone not worthy of the title
"professor" or "Dr." (i.e., said person has only their BA or BS) should not
be teaching at a college/university level to begin with.
