Let me say this about Gary King. He is your basic good human being and is serving us well as New Mexico attorney general.No surprise. He is the son of a storied and legendary governor, Bruce King. Bruce and Alice are quite a team. Solid stock there.Here’s the thing, though. One guesses Gary is a top-level nerd. Look at the record. Grew up on the family ranch in Stanley. Attended New Mexico State University. Became an organic chemist. Boy Scout leader.That’s why I was surprised when Attorney General King issued “Prom Night Tips for Parents.” The suspicion here is that Gary spent prom night playing chess. I bet he doesn’t have a clue about what goes on at this so-called rite of passage. I, on the other hand, ended up in the school fountain fully clothed and therefore, I humbly suggest, am probably more qualified to issue prom night advice.Here are the actual prom night tips from Gary King followed (in parenthesis) by my personal advice to the hunk wannabe who plans to invite my beautiful 16-year-old granddaughter to the prom.• Make sure your teen has a plan for the evening and that you know it.(Oh, I know your plan, son. I was 16 once myself. Forget it.)• Work with the school to have food served during the prom.(Listen, young man, this isn’t Taco Bell night. This is a special girl.
