Family Circus

No one can drive us crazy unless we give them the keys. - Doug Horton


Why I choose not to watch the News

Sheriff's deputies found eleven children between ages 1 and 14 in cages at the home of their foster parents in Ohio on Monday. Halie said, "Maybe their mommy was building a zoo to put them in", to which I responded, "No, sweetie. Kennels are for dogs and cats, not kids." Halie has not mentioned it again.
I have not mentioned Katrina in earlier posts, simply because I do not feel that I can draw more attention to the devastation than is already being given along the Gulf Coast. I am crying, knowing that every person that died, adult - youth - infant, was a mother's child.
