Treasure Your Children!

If we all killed our teen-agers for being mouthy, the human race would cease to exist. Not only do young people have all sorts of new hormones raging through their bodies, but they're experimenting with adulthood, with being people independent of their parents. Julie Schenecker is unhinged and maybe a druggie, but she still should be hanged by the neck until dead. Killing your own children is the worst of crimes.

And selling them into sexual slavery isn't much better. Fio wasn't surprised to read about the "dancing boys" and extensive male-male relationships of Afghanistan and thereabouts. Doonesbury had already brought them to her attention. That's the sort of thing that happens in cultures where women are subjugated and abased.

By contrast, Amy Chua is a sweetie pie.
