Note the following from Charles McGrath, "Empty Nest Blues," _The New Yorker_, 9/18/95, p. 112: "Or what would they [author's parents, now dead] have made of the safe-sex display in my son's dormitory, featuring not only free dental dams and instructions in dental-dam etiquette?" I can somewhat imagine what it might mean, but I am curious to know the facts. Thanks in advance.
