I love Joe Queenan, but his chapter on getting your kids through the school years might be my single favorite stand-alone essay of his, ever. And now the Wall Street Journal has run an adaptation of it, which you can read here.
The Dadly Virtues keeps trucking along to Father’s Day . . .
Enjoyed your opinion on lower taxes. I have been telling people for years that the trouble with America is not on Wall Street, there objective is to make lots of money an they will continue to do just that. The trouble is not in Washington DC, those politicians were greedy people with not much energy for years, and they are not going to change. Especially now that they are paying themselves more and more. The trouble is on main street, where people do not understand that what is good for them may not be good for America. Thus, we have lost the concept of the common good. 300,000,000 people each doing what is best for themselves in the short run.
