Dear Randy Readers,
The number of you who wrote me to learn the details of my silly little Dare with Jimmy caught me off guard. To those of you who were offended by the liberties I let my son take, I apologize. To those of you who were disappointed by how lame the Dare turned out to be, I apologize.
Personally, I thought it was just about right. More than I would have Dared on my own - - Jimmy really pushed me - - but still within some, admittedly elusive, bounds of propriety. Looking back, I'm glad I steeled myself to follow through. And I'm also glad it's behind me.
