"Why a Girl Will Not Be The Orbit's 1961 Man of the Year. A certain distinguished lady robot designer was given earnest consideration by The Orbit for the mantle of Man of the Year. She would have been the Orbit's first female Man of the Year had The Orbit not thoroughly investigated her. What was unearthed proved shocking to our Awards Board. Most robot designers aren't teetotalers, but most don't reek of grog at 10 a.m. either. Most robot designers also don't line their walls with an extensive collection of photographs of former lovers. In addition, most robot designers don't parade their much younger current lovers and/or secret out-of-wedlock children for all the world to see.

"These revelations beg the question: Should girls be doing men's work? If this is what results when girls take on more than they can chew, they're best left to the care of children and the household. Of course, the traditional female roles of teachers, nurses, and secretaries shouldn't change, as these jobs don't constitute men's work. Men should do men's work, and girls should do girls' work. That's how God designed us. The Orbit will continue to give full consideration to both men and girls for the prestigious Man of the Year Award. However, we will continue to fully investigate our candidates to validate their worthiness for the award. That is our solemn promise to our dedicated readers."
