SUMMER'S COME. If I close my eyes I can hear a hundred insistent hisses as a hundred mothers spray Solarcaine on backs as red as strawberries, hear their tired voices saying acidly: "I told you a hundred times to keep your T-shirt on, but would you listen to me? No."That was my summer, but summer isn't what it used to be. Children of the 1990s do not sunburn; they sunscreen. This protects their skin from damage and, as a collateral benefit, teaches them math.Any American kid today can tell you that 30 provides twice the protection from ultraviolet rays that 15 does, and that 2 is a complete waste of time.
