If you are a parent, you have got to listen to the A Prairie Home
Companion's News from Lake Woebegone from last week. I didn't hear
until today. It is so true. The tale is about a bus driver that smokes
and drinks. Well, it is about the difference between growing up fifty
years ago and today. Well, it is about life and change in general. Oh,
just go listen to it.
I'm old enough to know a bit about how things have changed when it
comes to raising kids. We have some friends who will not discipline
their kids. They already had one set of kids turn out a mess. Now,
hopefully the second set of kids turn out better somehow. It looks like
the no discipline path just doesn't work.
The people who do A Prairie Home
Companion are amazing. They are creative and talented. The movie was cool.
They are living the dream. Well, not as cool a dream as the MythBuster
guys. They got the dream wrapped up.
I don't know which of these links will fail after a while. Look for "News from Lake Woebegone".
