    I went through an old yearbook and remembered that I went to school with a girl named Deborah Pospisal. I suddenly find myself wondering what has been like for any nieces or cousin's children she may have had.

    Because her last name sounded like Possible, huh?
    ( - If you stop and think about it, her name could also have reminded folks of the word "popsicle!")

    As for me:

    Last night on an episode of Batman: The Animated Series, a robbery took place during a Gotham City boxing match. One of the boxers was nicknamed "Mad Dog."

    I dunno, I overheard some guy talking today and for some reason I thought of Kim (see quote section). He has two young men for kids, and stated that he was fortunate they were not born girls instead.

    Not sure what to make of that, really? I never heard anyone say anything like that before. It's fine to have that opinion but it was said with gusto, and a giddy sense of relief! Gosh, it's like having kids being born dead would have been better. Having no kids myself (and no hope of it either) I would say, count your blessings dude.

    Some people.....

    All I can say is, I'M glad they weren't born girls too! Because apparently for this guy, they would have been a constant disappointment. And they would have known that too, because kids pick up on that resentment.

    This is actually a pretty common way of thinking in rural areas here where yo can even expect a graffiti on one's fence or house (if the newborn is male, then then the father is a "Gander" and if the newborn is female, the father is a "drake").

    It is unfortunate that this thinking persists in many areas of the world. The reasoning can be understood simply because in a rural, less technological society (and please understand that I do NOT imply that this is inferior in any way in and of itself), the work required to keep society going and to survive is greatly manual in nature, which of course would tend to give greater worth to a man's strength. This gives over to a more pragmatic view that would tend to see a male child as a better security option for the family in its future. It also unfortunately tends to also disparage females as "lesser" human beings than males, often leading members of that society to degrade them to that status with little worth beyond child-bearing, child-rearing, and keeping the house. Although not all such cultures were guilty of this, technological societies as a rule enabled equality of the sexes to become more of a reality at least in those particular societies, although in this country we still have a ways to go in a couple of areas.

    Parentally, you tend to worry more about girls (ask Campy) and tend to have a larger spectrum of potential disasters, real and imagined. Girls also tend to have it tougher, generally, especially in their social interactions with other girls. The thing with the cheerleaders and other high school females has a definite basis in fact.

    It's unfortunate that all the girls that used to be on the board left, they could illuminate this discussion.

    Also there is no way of knowing how the fellow you overheard would react to a daughter or daughters, it's entirely probable that he would cherish them (fathers do tend to go a bit overboard with their girls). I'm assuming you don't live in a place where doweries are still common. A friend of mine fantasized about mariage and having children up until the point that he did. One thing he used to think about was teaching his sons about all the things he liked doing as a kid. When he did have a daughter, he became positively doting. the boys weren't as keen as he was about his old passtimes, BTW.

    Whenever I read or hear the word "spotter" the first thing that comes to my mind is "Odds man in" episode and Ron's "Ah! Oh! Spotters! More Spotters!" line (have you noticed how furious Kim was after that one?).

    The other night I caught the first two episodes of the 1966 live-action Batman TV series on a local rerun channel. Right away, I thought, "Where's the Fearless Ferret when you need him?"
    BTW, the villain in those first two shows was none other than Frank Gorshin as the Riddler - the basis for White Stripe in the KP episode!

    I had long been thinking of trying some boxed wine, so today I purchased a very nice Malbec from Argentina. In the campy goor-may kitchen [so]guzzling[/so] sipping the first glass, I was reminded of "The New Ron" :

    Senor Senior, Sr.: Some refreshment perhaps? Oh, I have some lovely juice. Quite amazing really; it comes in a box.
