  NEW SERIES "The Goode Family":

      Helen is upset when Bliss joins an abstinence group;
      Ubuntu wants to get his driver's license.

The questions on every geek's mind: How did Ubuntu lose the
license to his driver?  Which driver?  And when did he acquire
a gender?  And I don't even want to consider how Ubuntu relates
to Bliss and abstinence... though I vaguely recall a programming
language named "Bliss".
