When I wrote the article about lemon scent being prevalent, Mona Lisa sent the following e-mail:

"Lemon juice has "artificial" lemon and dishwashing detergent has "real" lemon--WHY?"

She included a number of other "WHYS?":

Why do women open their mouths while applying mascara?

Why, when driving and looking for an address, do we turn down the volume on the radio?

Why don't they make mouse-flavored cat food?

Why do steam irons have Perma-Press settings?

Why isn't phonetic spelled the way it sounds?

Why did Kamikaze pilots wear helmets in the movies?

Why do you need a driver's license to buy liquor when you can't drink and drive?

Why are there Braille dots on a drive-up ATM?

Why don't they make airplanes out of that black-box material?
