The Pink Telephone

No, I have no idea what "dialing zero on the old pink telephone" means; please enlighten me. [Reality Truck, Jul 5].

Ken Kurtz

It's a euphemism for sex. Isn't it?

Wise Up

Wake up and smell the orientation, Blondie. If some guy honestly suggested that you slipped him a ruffie to "lure" him into a "Clintonian evening," maybe you should consider the possibility that he'd prefer to dial zero on a brown telephone. If you know what I'm saying. [Reality Truck, Jul 5]

Move on already.

In Response to Ms. Manners.

Dear Editor,

The letter written by Ms. Manners [July 5, Ace Weekly] saddened me. It is a shame that she had such a bad experience while visiting us here in Lexington. It is also a shame that she had to feel such rudeness and unfriendliness coming from the people of Lexington. If this person feels offended enough to make sure that she does everything in her power to alert everyone to our rude, shoddy, sorry behavior, then it is up to us the people of Lexington, to see to it that we make our friends, family, neighbors, coworkers, and everyday people that we interact with feel that we care and are willing to help one another out in times of need. A smile and a simple hello can brighten anyone's day. So the next time you are serving someone remember to smile and wish them a happy day, even if your day doesn't seem so bright, the reward of this will come back to you and you will see someone else smile in return.

Have a happy day!

Charles Grodin advocates that we all treat everyone as if they are coming off a terrible drug addiction. At the worst, he says, people might think we're overly sensitive. Of course, we're not saying he's right. Just tossing it out there for discussion.


Hi Chris,

I wanted to thank you for the wonderful piece you did about the Theater of PossABILITIES. The performance was a great success with standing room only. Thanks again for your help.

Hi I just wanted to let you know how much I have enjoyed your mag this week. I have been in Lexington and picked up your mag and I love it. I have read thousands of mags and yours is the best I ever have seen, it makes me wish I lived there so I could get a copy each week, I have it on line now but it is just not the same as the paper one. Again I just wanted to let you all know how much I like it, thanks for having it.
