I read this article earlier today and I almost lost my lunch. Great analysis, Hube.

Thanks, Mike, but I really didn't do much of an analysis, really. :-)

Overall, I think it's just a sad story, as I mentioned. Teaching for many years shows one what "works best," but I want to make clear that even though taken as a whole I believe two-parent families are the most successful (raising successful kids), there certainly are many instances of single-parent households (and "other" types of homes, like with gay adoptive parents) that also do a great job.

No argument from me, other to say that the research (and my experience) supports the legalization of gay marriage.

The key is two loving active parents, the gender of those parents is not relevant.

Yep, add me to the "me too" list. I even agree with Jason.

This is where I can throw "liberal" criticism at the failed policies of the DC DEM '60's which turned the ghetto-family out on its ear.

Lack of employment opportunities in the inner cities and the resulting slum-inducing poverty led the "welfare queen" syndrome: NO FATHERS ALLOWED.

No welfare check/per baby were doled to the poor if the residents included a man in the if that would magically make jobs and working fathers and create stable families.

A long road to go back to whole families in a culture shocked by decades of horrid social policy. These folks bought into it but who really can blame them?

Current state of affairs in the country are turning this reckless trend of outsourcing to joblessness in every class: the new DC GOPer policy failure. And they are determined to remove the safety net altogether!

We thank you for your comments, Nancy, even though you stated at that rad blog site, we're "right wing nuts."

What no link? I have a feeling I would like that blog.

Are we ready to say that responsibility is for white people? When black kids are made fun of by their peers for doing well in school, it's clear that education is for white people. I'm not ready to write off African-Americans as a permanent underclass, but it doesn't seem like they're trying too hard.

Oh poo G. Rex. Shame on you.

Hube, call 'em as you see 'em!!!
I like nuts left or right, just don't get violent, lie, cheat and steal my electoral process.
