A few items nobody has posted about:
- After dragging their feet, hemming and hawing, scratching their heads, thinking it over, and generally stalling, TLC finally cancelled 19 Kids and Counting. The cherry on top is that TLC is going to air a commercial-free documentary about child abuse in partial atonement for their advancement of pedophilia. That will be an interesting change from the commercial-laden documentaries of child abuse that are normally featured on that channel.
- A recently published study shows that 95% of women who have had an abortion do not regret it. (Here’s the paper.) I’ll bet the number of parents who don’t regret having kids is somewhere south of 95%, but I have no science to back that up.
- Here’s some foreshadowing for the 401K generation in the US: the rate of elder crime is higher than the rate of teenage crime in Japan and South Korea. [Not really–read the story, but it makes a nice headline.] Yet another argument against cutting Social Security.
Open thread for the common man.
