Lack of Common Sense, But No Shortage of Volume

The world is a different place than it was when your parents raised you. Maybe life is more boring and uniform now that people are more likely to reach adulthood with all ten fingers intact, no limps, no disfiguring scars, but I'm all for it.

It's sad that this columnist doesn't have something better to do than pitch mud on parents -- to defend a "reality" TV show? Those are some mixed up priorities. Maybe she does have better things to do -- but what could be easier than to put down parents? There isn't a one of us who hasn't made hundreds of mistakes in the course of our children's lives, or maybe even in the course of our children's week. We might as well paint targets on our foreheads as soon as we take on the job of Mom or Dad -- I only mention dads to be fair; everyone knows it's really all the mother's fault. Wicked, wicked mothers!
