Dear Miss Wendy,

I was reading MSNBC ( and it seem that a seventy-nine-year-old woman has just been sentenced to life plus five years (come on now!) for shooting her eighty-five-year-old boyfriend. She suspected he was cheating on her. How could such a thing occur?



Dear Pally,

One simple word: Viagra. I blame Viagra for such unseemly conduct among our elderly. In years past, our perpetrator might have suspected that her “friend” was using his social security check to purchase pansies for the lady down the hall. But surely this provocation would not have been enough to drive her into a murderous rage. But now her boyfriend is able to “reinforce his desires” with the help of a bottle of little blue pills (or worse yet, has a Cialis induced four-hour walking stick) and Shakespearean dramas are being reenacted in the corridors of nursing homes. They really must revise the warning labels on those bottles.

Dear Miss Wendy,

I just saw the New York City Gay rights parade. What would you say was this year’s prevailing theme?


Out from out-of-town

Dear Out,

It was feathers, as in the words of Emily Dickinson, “Hope is the thing with feathers.”
