945 pounds of food Equal partners claim true love Dear Abby In response to Happy to Be Rons Girl yuck I am dismayed that someone can call herself an oldfashioned girl yet shirk her moral responsibilities and be Rons livein honey instead of his wife Rons Girl has a warped definition of true love since they are not willing to make he commitment of marriage Rons got it made He has all the benefits of lover mommy maid and slave without the hassle of commitment My husband and Iare both working professionals and we share household responsibilities Just because I dont want to spend my life being my husbands maid doesnt mean Im We have anequal partnership which my husband and I agree is the definition of true Unlike Rons who didnt have enough courage to let you print her name you may print mine I stand behind my convictions Stacy L Verdick Case Elaine Minn Dear Stacy Since I ran the letter from Happy to Be Rons I have been inundated with mail from irate readers who were morally offended at the thought of couples living together Read on Dear Abby Happy to Be Rons Girl boasted that she had good looks and brains and was happy to serve her man a good meal and show her love by doing his laundry Thats fine and dandy and I applaud her for it But she went on to brand women who aspire to shirking domestic duties as lazy Well Id like to add another thing Shes also smug and arrogant How dare this supposedly brainy woman flaunt her holierthanthou attitude and pass judgment on the rest of us who are domestically challenged In my opinion there are other ways of showing your love besides cooking and ironing clothes For 12 years I have been happily married to a loving wonderful man who married me despite my wellknown aversion to household chores and inability to follow a recipe To Rons I say To each her own sister And if youre so how come he has not given you a wedding ring to prove his love Please dont use my real name Just sign me Incensed in Florida Dear Abby In response to Happy to Be Rons Girl the woman who scolded contemporary women for not catering to or waiting on their men I am a 38yearold married career woman and the mother of two teen agers I possess some excellent old fashioned morals thanks to my parents who taught me love respect and a host of other decent things Those two people would be the first ones to promote and endorse equality in the home We dont use the word however Rather we stress responsibility and contribution by everyone I pity Rons who probably has never experienced the joy of coming home to clean dishes or supper

problem with having enough food because they only have two one student pointed out Laudun then passed out peanuts divided according to the food availability and wealth of each region Youre going to get an idea of how much we actually have or dont have based on what you she said Many of the students were upset when their group received three or four peanuts compared to the pile of peanuts US and Canada received Can I move to the United States asked one boy in the Latin America group that received four peanuts Im packing my bags and The students quickly realized the importance of sharing and reaching out to people in other countries Its not fair to people in Africa and Asia and the people in the other countries should donate food to said another student in the Asia group The students then got to crack their nuts open and count the actual number of peanuts they had and divide them among the members of the group The students realized that by dividing what they had and snaring there was enough for everyone But helping feed the less fortunate was not the only lesson the students learned Laudun pointed out the amount of peanut shells left behind One student said that even though the United States had fewer people they produced more waste The group thought of several ways this amount could actually be reduced through reuse and recycling However the lesson of sharing was driven
