nylonsThe Valentine's Day I most vividly remember involved the first woman whom I courted with any seriousness. Entranced as I was with her physical charms I was, as usual, unable to resist the imp of the perverse that constantly whispered bad advice into my ear. So with no small amount of pride I presented her with a gift-wrapped package containing a small box of chocolates and a pair of real silk nylons.

She didn't get it, but her mother did. I always liked that woman.

But enough about me. What February 14th memories do you, esteemed reader, care to share? And if it involves a priest, keep it to yourself.

Note 4: Americus. A graphic novel about book-burning. Buy one for your kids.

Note 5: Speaking of contraception, the new federal rules that the GOP is foaming at the mouth over have been in force for years. The only difference now is the "no cost" part. That's the part that bothers them. (Incidentally, birth control saves health insurance a LOT of money.)

Him: But, honey, don't you understand that there's no evidence that saints were anything more than ordinary humans with a sincere passion for their particular orthodoxy.

Her: I understand that perfectly. But if come back without chocolate and flowers, you're a dead man.
