“Wife Discovers Sports, Music Don’t Mix”

“He likes only sports, so I have to go dragging along to the games and listen to the stuff over the radio. I like music, concert, and operas but do you think he would accompany me to one of these things? Not on your life.” This complaint appeared in today’s Harrisburg Telegraph advice column. The response from columnist Doris Black: “if he’s a good provider, a good husband with no major vices to cope with, why harry yourself or him by trying to force culture down his throat!” In other words, keep quiet and keep your head down – especially now that baseball season is starting. My generation won’t put up with that!
