With sexologist-turned-gerontologist Dr. Alex Comfort

Dr. Alex Comfort seems to be all that he admires most in men—feisty, intellectually probing, possessed of a liberal if rambling wit, and downright bloody-minded about anything he considers to be a social fault begging for resolve. The British-born physician is a man of many parts: a Cambridge classics scholar, poet, writer of more than 40 books, anarchist and political radical, as well as a world-recognized leading gerontologist.

I enjoyed Hog Town At The Bat (May 2) but would you kindly explain why Roy Hartsfield is wearing a “defective” cap. Every loyal Blue Jay fan knows the Blue Jay always faces with his beak to the left.

By all the classic political scripts he was finished. Saturday’s hero. An engaging, flamboyant man who captured national attention and acclaim as British Columbia’s first socialist premier but who then, in the words of a still bitter member of the New Democratic Party, “went on to blow two generations of socialist work in this province.”

The funniest magazine article I have ever read is a piece by a woman, some 70 years of age, that deals with a certain way of pleasing the male sex organ. It is in the May Esquire, it is by Helen Lawrenson and is entitled How Now, Fellatio! Why Dost Thou Tarry?
