  •  I'm really unhappy with the blanket (6+ / 0-)

    characterization of young mothers as morons. I think we're looking at problems generated by lack of education, poverty, too few supports for one's very survival. I know it's easy to paint the whole family as "less than", but in fact as I read it it is the grandmother alone who was responsible.

    Otherwise, I completely agree with you.

    Cats are better than therapy, and I'm a therapist.

    •  I also don't like that kind of blanket (4+ / 0-)

      characterization, situations happen, but this person was definitely sub-100 IQ. Leave a bag with drugs/paraphernalia and a gun within reach of a little kid? That's stupid no matter what the rest of her life looked like.

      If I ran this circus, things would be DIFFERENT!
