Interested readers ( actually, less than a dozen ) have inquiries about prior entries that deserve attention. From folk art & pornography, Jay L., NY, asked about a reference, the VW Beetles buried nose down in NM, and I could not recall where they were located. What I did find was a photo taken, dated March 24, 2009, shortly before 1 PM, MST. I assumed it was in NM while headed back to the midwest. If you know the location, get back to me.

In Life as Paperboys, three budding writers asked the identity of the author of a dozen popular novels which had been carefully cloaked in a layer of gauze. They were evidently seeking publishing advice. Although to my knowledge the writer has no outstanding warrants, his identity will not be revealed for two reasons:
- He is armed with a .357 magnum
- I do not have a kevlar vest
The issue titled Motel Hell and Vanna White created some fun and discomfort:
- rbb in RI; thanks for your loyalty, but you need to join the 21st century, learn to bookmark on the family computer, and throw away your so 1970s Rolodex file
- jmb in CO; if you decide to cull out your closet of elegant couture, I want first dibs before you go to St. Vincent de Paul, Salvation Army, or the Buffalo Exchange
- bdoyle in CA; advancing age has caused a < in testosterone, resulting in a shrinkage of certain male components and a concomitant > in estrogen. For next year’s physical we plan to add a Pap smear and a mammogram to the finger pointing ritual
- iflash in AZ; DeTour is Patagonia in drag (or is it the other way around…..?)
- jk in MI; how fragile it is to go “down under”, being a faux transvestite and at the same time a genuine Yooper. If the Cubs make it to the World series, I plan to dress sweeter than Lady Godiva for game seven.
- ge in CA; we could be a couple, dazzling the doyennes of the GWG convention as drag kings. You can be Mrs. Doubtfire. I always felt that Tootsie was miscast when Sidney Pollack (a native of South Bend, IN) picked Dustin Hoffman over me.
- gopio in NY; your subtle hint at lawyering is offensive. Just get me a clean room. My response, in Hindi, below*
- bj in WY; sorry, but I was an unpopular geek in high school, and according to wife Lynn, still am.
