He sends out more mail from Washington than any public official in our experience. It seems every week we get two or three letters from him, franked mail mostly if not all so far. Tuesday the bulkiest package in the morning mail was a big enevelope from Hoeven. It contained a marked copy of the Congressional Record of July 19. It was half an inch thick, with the thin pages squeezed together, and had 213 pages. The marked passages were of interest, telling Hoeven's position on the agricultural committee's farm bill and reporting his blast at Secretary Freeman. But we just don't have the time to add so much reading to our list every week. In addition, we question why anyone wanting anything is that eager to flood the mails, even when it's free.

She said he was the son of an old family friend and she couldn't help it because the family showed up unexpectedly and her mother practically pushed her out the door. I believe her but I don't think it's fair. After all, when a boy and girl go steady, they're not supposed to date others and parents should know as much. Isn't that right? — Jackie. Dear Jackie: Parents usually know the rules but they also know going steady shouldn't be considered that serious.
