DATING?

Need something to tell your kids when they begin to date? You can't do better than this common sense dating guide by none other than Nancy Reagan. It is called Nancy Reagan's Guide to Dating Do's and Don'ts.  It's so good you might want to print it out and show it to your kids, just like those Ann Landers' columns you love so much.

H. L. MENCKEN

"Conscience is the inner voice that warns us that someone might be looking."

H.L. Mencken was the leading newspaperman and literary critic in America in the first part of the twentieth century. He was born in Baltimore in 1880 and lived there until he died in 1956. He didn't like politicians, evangelists, Puritans, stupid Americans, the Ku Klux Klan, and a lot of other things. He is not for the squeamish or the easily offended.  Make sure you have a dictionary handy.
