(Continued)

"A remarkable feature of the new older parenting," Shulevitz writes, "is how happy women seem to be about it. It's considered a feminist triumph." I'm not so sure. Also, remember how there was that one kid in your high school class whose parents were so old that it was weird and creepy? That's all of us now. Oops.

The Iowegian wants readers to think about the solicitation ordinance that will prevent groups or individuals from entering a roadway to solicit money. The Centerville City Council in June by a 5-0 vote passed the first reading of just such an ordinance. Public pressure and during a subsequent special meeting, the council voted 3-2 to table the ordinance. A second special meeting to discuss the solicitation ordinance is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 7 at City Hall. So, the question of the week is, "Do you or do you not support the ordinance to prevent solicitation of funds in city streets?"

A. I support the ordinance
B. I do not support the ordinance
C. Not sure
