This column is about ladies, but it is addressed to the guys. Here is our vital public service message of the month: Stop buying things for women.

Actually, you can continue purchasing chocolate, flowers, birthday cards, jewelry, fancy soap for the guest bathroom, and all the other stuff that women typically enjoy (and men pretty much hate), but we really need to stop buying them firearms and hunting accessories.

This advice is based upon the opinion of pretty much every woman I have encountered. Our topic falls squarely into the whole “Man/Woman, Mars/Venus” thing and came about as most do: after a major failure on my part.
