Vasa If streaking offends, just wear blinders By Abigail Van Buren DEAR ABBY: You hear so much talk about how terrible the young people are, but bow about the adults? This new streaking fad is being encouraged by people who are old enough to know better. You can't pick up a newspaper without reading about a streaker. And everyone thinks it's something to laugh about. Well, last week my 43-year-old husband went to take his usual shower before dinner, when all of a sudden we heard the shower door bang, and in nothing flat here comes my husband running completely naked past me, our teen-aged daughter and two teen-aged sons! He ran through the living room, dining room, kitchen and back to the bedroom. He thought he was being funny. I was furious, and the children were too shocked to say anything. What do you think about this streaking business? DISGUSTED DEAR DISGUSTED: I think that there is so much to cry about today, that streaking is part of the "anything-for-»laugh" syndrome. For my part, if something I dida't wait to see more of came into view. I'd quickly close my eyes. DEAR ABBY: I am doing time in a federal penitentiary, and have noticed that you seem to have a sympathetic feeling toward prisoners. I won't go into my history because it would take up your whole column, but I do have a favor to ask of you. I want to study the Bible, but I don't have one. Could you please send me one? I am a Christian. I am rwt begging. I can pay for it a little at a time. I am black and male, -if that matters. FOUR YEARS TO GO DEAR FOUR: Your color doesn't matter, but your sex does because I have a friend in Dallas, Tex., who will stmi a red Bible to any man in prison who wants one, and a white Bible to every female inmate. It comes with instructions on how to study, and it's free. His name is Chapla» Ray. Send me your complete address and I'll do the rest. God bless. DEAR ABBY: The following story is almost identical to the one described by Loved and Lost, which recently appeared in your column. Only the ending is different. I think it's worth printing. Mature man in his 40s meets younger charming woman in her 20s. She's sexy, charming, vivacious, etc. A serious emotional involvement follows. After a six months hidden passionate affair the man leaves his wife of 16 years and several wonderful children. He begins a new "heavenly" life with the younger woman, and after one year he finds that she is selfish, moody, materialistic, arrogant and possessive. The situation becomes intolerable, and the love affair is over. All this time the wife had been getting counseling to help her over this painful experience. I asked if we could try again and this magnificent woman took me back with dignity and nobility. For her the whole miserable episode never happened, and she refuses to hear even one word about it. Conclusion: There are still women who hold the home and family above their own pride. PLEASE WITHHOLD MY NAME COXFIDLATIAL TO B. L.: \o one said it better thin Sibyl Kr> .'•>: "I know what every woman needs As she, perforce, grows older; A true and understanding friend To lend a wetproof shoulder, And who. when they shall meet again, Forgets the things she told her."
