To the Editor:

   "Minster?"  Bah, humbug!
   I'm a consultant to the Oxford English Dictionary, and I must object to Alexandra Jacobs' coining of the new word, "minster," for "spinster" heterosexual males in their forties who are still not married.
   We're a great group of guys!  We're not desperate!  We've got money!  We've traveled the world!  The Wall Street Journal has called us a genius (January 2nd, page A20, regrettably below the fold)!  We don't need those _Sex and the City_ gals!
   Just between us, though, if Alexandra's not married...
