A few days ago I saw a television commercial where Bo and Luke Duke were brought back from the "Dukes of Hazzard" to promote some product. Once again they were in "The General" outrunning the law.

I realize, perhaps better than anyone, that it's not polite to ask others about their reproductive plans. I've long ranted about how much it annoyed me when friends, family members and even perfect strangers would inquire about a possible plunge into parenthood. Even now, as most of my readers know, I get aggravated when people ask whether my 2-year-old daughter, Reese, will ever be a sister.
