    As this story out of Worcester, Mass. indicates, criticizing the poor table manners of one of your relatives could get you hurt quite badly.

    I can think of few things as disagreeable as sharing a table with someone whose manners leave something to be desired, but I think I would simply not invite them again rather than risk blood splashes on my own impeccable attire by stabbing them.

    Absolutely Vb, your immaculate attire is the last thing you should wear when stabbing someone. Forget boilersuits etc, the best thing is the cheapest jeans and cotton shirt you can find, as the fibres are almost universal, making life very difficult for forensics, or so I was advised by a scenes of crime officer.

    I only wish that I could comfortably practice what I preach.
