Miss Manners and Daughter and Co-Author Jacobina

This is a year old but I just found it today so thought I'd post. Contains a little eitquette re: weddings. Lots of info on my favorite maven and her daughter.http://articles.chicagotribune.com/2010-02-28/features/ct-sun-miss-manners-20100228_1_judith-martin-american-etiquette-improv

Just because you're disappointed in me doesn't mean I did anything wrong.

I love Miss Manners, but the redo of the book on weddings with her daughter is one I really disliked. I felt like they were going for the cheap laugh and not for answering questions.
If wisdom’s ways you wisely seek,
Five things observe with care,
To whom you speak,
Of whom you speak,
And how, and when, and where.

Thanks for the link.  I think Miss Manners' is wonderfully funny, and it's no surprise her daughter is a comedian.  I'll have to check out Jane the next time I'm in Chicago.  Love the Second City.
