Y2K watchdog


ASTA's push to warn would-be millennium trekkers about Y2K travel scams is a good one. Still, even ASTA's powerhouse publicity machine can't possibly flush out every millennium pitfall.

Take Toronto-based agency Prasad & Associates' cyber-freebie: glow-in-the-dark, year 2000 glasses. The potential hazard here, though cleverly hidden, is that people who wear these glasses WILL GLOW IN THE DARK.

Now, this may not be a problem in, say, New York City, where crime has been eradicated and the subways are clean. But try glowing after dark in Paris or Camden, New Jersey and you'll know you've been Y2K'd.

To avoid borrowing trouble, Window Seat urges you to find a millennium event so enthralling that you can dismiss with an elegant shrug your Y2K-drained bank account, stock portfolio, even your millennium-shrunk, size-32 Gap jeans that you know fit before Thanksgiving.

That event is listed on, where else, the Happy New Millennium web site. It's Sharon Wichtendahl's wedding. Sharon is inviting the public to her nuptials, which begin at 11:50 p.m. on Dec. 31 and end some time Jan. 3. The festivities will be held in either Phoenix or Las Vegas. Note: illuminated eyewear is de rigueur.
