Miss Manners Channels Miss Austen

 
In today’s St. Louis Post-Dispatch (June 24), Miss Manners (a.k.a. Judith Martin), our favorite advice-giver, tackles the tricky question of courtship now and then (the Regency era, of course). We offer a link to Miss Manners’ observations in the hope that they will put a smile on your face, as they did ours:

We wonder if anyone has considered inviting Miss Manners to an AGM. Were she to accept, of course, we would all have to be on our very best behavior. Indeed.
