Editor:

After reading A. Fish's article "Sexual Decay in H. Sapiens," one can wonder if sex (etc.) can be scientifically and mathematically quantified! However if so, must there not be two formulations -- one for the male, and one for the female of the species??? And, isn't it a miracle that the male and female interest (lust, etc.) coincide?

Dear Sir:

In the U.S., hapless school children are required to memorize the names of the Presidents. In England, it's monarchs. Since the list is considerably longer, some kind soul long ago invented a rhyme to help. It begins:

Willy, Willy, Harry, Steve,
Harry, Dick, John, Harry Three,
One, two, three Neds, Dick the Bad,...

Here my memory fails, and since somebody recently gave me a short history of the Kings and queens of England, it's giving me a royal fit.

Is there a reader of this erudite publication who was exposed to this doggerel and whose memory is longer than mine? Help!

Richard Holmes

But January Has the Cruelest WEEK
Jerry McCann

Issue #05 (January 1982)

January always finds us
Reeling from Yuletide excess;
Pricking conscience now reminds us
To regroup and re-assess.
We must make some restitution,
Changing habits, ways we think;
Make some solemn resolution
Not to nosh or smoke or drink.
O the Horrors of Temptation,
Dies Irae, Days of Woe
O Bleak Week of Tribulation,
Then back home to Status Quo.
