‘PC NONSENSE?’

Sometimes a phrase just means what it says

An Aug. 14 letter denounced as “PC nonsense” the use of the phrase “life partner” instead of “husband” to describe Steve Lawrence in the headline for his wife’s obituary. Perhaps the letter writer should direct her complaint to Mr. Lawrence, who, in the article, called Eydie Gorme “my partner in life and on stage for 55 years.”
