The hair apparent
I have a letter here from Mrs. Belle Ehrlich, of San Jose, Calif., who feels I should get a new hairdo. To quote her directly: "I enjoy reading most of your columns . . . but your hairdo in your photo sure looks DATED and NOT at all flattering or becoming, to say the least. If you are still sporting that awful hairdo, I suggest you go to a good hair stylist to give you a new and better hairdo. I hope you don't mind my criticism, it's nothing personal -- just a suggestion."
We're taking our son, Robby, to his first day of kindergarten. He is being Very Brave. So are we.
Driving while stupid
So I have to tell you what I saw on the interstate the other night. First, though, you must understand that this was not just any old interstate. This was I-95 in downtown Miami, proud home of the worst darned drivers in the world.
Summer time and the living is frightening
This is a special time of year, as expressed so poetically in the lyrics to the haunting song <em>Summertime</em> from <em>Porgy and Bess</em>: <br />
<p/><em>Summertime, and the livin' is easy <br />
Fish are jumpin'<br />
And gettin' lodged in the throats of fisherpersons</em>
Sock it to `em, sartorially
This topic was suggested by a letter from John Cog of Norfolk, Va. Here's the entire text: ''How come when I'm standing in front of a full-length mirror with nothing on but socks, white socks look OK, but dark-colored socks make me look cheap and sleazy?''
