Gosh, not to state the obvious or anything but George hasn't worn short
pants in a long time.

As an educator and a public speaker -- not, of course, that I would know
anything about that -- you might find that not telling grown adults how to
behave is a successful strategy.

Of course, a little condescension is always fun!  :)

Wow, I feel all better now.  Think I'll go back to cussing Internet Explorer
in every language I know and some I don't. :D
