So I have three sons. I'm not the only dad in America, nor even among my friends, whose ex-wife has served a death penalty upon any paternal influence by him through her insidious pernicious overbearing influence on minor children during the divorce.
Whatever. What a society, what a gender.
Bad ol' me has a prepaid Virginia tuition plan that I own that has my oldest child as its beneficiary. It pays 100% of the lad's (he's well into adulthood now) tuition and fees at any in-state public university.
The IRS is going to vacate this plan in 2014, ten years after he graduated from high school, due to its tax-preferential treatment for all these years. I sent Jim's mother a letter a year ago asking for Jim's address so I could communicate with him about this but she blew me off as usual, and she's a teacher of little first-graders!
Anyway, Jimbo, I sent you a Christmas card at your mom's address, and it hasn't come back (yet), telling you all this in addition to wishing you a happy holiday. I know you live or lived there, or were there for an extended period this summer.
Check it out. Call me, I'm in the book and my work number hasn't changed in over two decades.
