Is there any male inhabitant of these United States who gives a flying
fandangle about the two Laci stories? Is this girlie
news, or what? The wives I know are all fascinated by it; the guys are all,
I dawns on me that perhaps our wives all creep around in terror that we are
going to murder them, and see these stories as validating their fears.
Nothing could be further from our minds!
Or maybe this is some kind of coded news aimed just at women, like those
broadcasts into occupied France during WW2. Or like that episode of
“Married With Children” where Al, dragged along to some show in the school
auditorium, notices that the socks Peg laid out for him are odd colors…
then he notices that all the men are wearing odd-colored socks… and the
women are winking at each other…
Honey, could we talk for a minute? Honey?….
