Guess Who's Coming to Dinner

(Continued from Page 3)

Should I take the gentlemanly way out and quit parking in the spaces reserved for the breeders or continue my lonesome fight?



Dear Sid:

Prudie has not heard of these new preferential parking spots. It would seem prudent (to use the adjective named for your adviser) to forgo your "lonesome fight" in the name of peace and quiet. Hang on, though. The way reproductive developments are going, it shouldn't be too long before you can look a policeman in the eye and say, "Sir, I am entitled to this space. Though I do not show yet, I am due in the spring."

--Prudie, futuristically
