Celebrating dad



In the know. In the Times.

Father’s Day is Sunday.  Do you have a special Father figure in your life that you want to recognize?  If you are stumped for ideas, and don’t want to disappoint, you need to check out Nicholas Kristof’s article on page 15A of today’s St. Petersburg Times.  He gives lots of creative options for those who want to surprise, dazzle and wow Dad, without caving in to commercialism.  Kristof offers several charities to which you could make a meaningful donation in Dad’s name.  He suggests a handmade card over a store bought one.  And then there is the bomb-sniffing rat that needs a sponsor.  Kristof would rather have his name associated with the do-good rat, than get another necktie. How do you plan to celebrate your father this weekend?  Tell us why your dad should be honored.
