Remember the smoking baby video? Here’s a clip from the Today Show:

Well, now CNN talks to the mother who says, “Well, I don’t want to give him cigarettes, but what I am I supposed to do? I am confused.” Yes you are, honey. Yes. You. Are.

This is one of the saddest stories I have ever seen. What is up with parents thinking they’ll make their kids happy by giving them whatever they want? Yeah, that’s totally going to work.

People are always happy when they have their every whim granted. Just look at wealthy celebrities. Britney. Paris. Miley. They couldn’t be better, more well-adjusted humans if their mothers had let them light up for their second birthday.

    1. Thanks! Overall, I’m really happy with wordpress so far. There are enough built-in features to make it workable, and the look is nice and clean. Now I just need to learn some CSS…
