How to qualify a prospective son-in-law and see if he has the right stuff for your daughter? Ask him, “Are you a Communist?” and see how he reacts.
One Saturday not long ago, my 5-year old daughter Sally got it into her head to put on a play called 'The Princess and the Duke'. Before I knew what it was about, I was urging advice upon her. Turns out, the one who needed advice was me.
At the risk of sounding a little syrupy, I have to say one of the great rewards of being the father of daughters is hearing them giggle together late into the night.
