The decision brought imme-
diate reaction from women's
rights groups, with Karen De
Crow. president of the National
Organization for Women, called
it "insulting to every mother in
the country."
"The court stated that men
and women are treated equally
under such a plan because, if a
'man is pregnant, he will be
treated in the same manner as
a woman. Such a definition of
sex discrimination is indeed
unique," she said.

The reaction of florists, said Ascher, has been, "Not an-
other lily!" Easter lilies mean big problem- for florists be-
cause of the precise timing needed to get them to bloom at
Easter.
"Easter changes more than any other holiday and the Eas-
er lily is the most holiday-specific flower there is," Ascher said.
"If you've got 10,000 pots of Easter lilies and you miss Easter

y two weeks, the only thing you can do is kill half the crop
and try to use the rest' for funerals."
