Back in the 1960s, in late June, my parents secretly plotted to whisk me off to summer camp.

Naturally, I was the last person to know about my being shipped to some remote, woody area in Wisconsin where kiddos slapped their arms and legs, trying to squash mosquitoes. This didn't sound thrilling at all to me. I could do that just as well here in my hometown of Winfield.
