Walking home today I saw a kid, maybe 10 or so, having a fight with his mother. He called her a f***er. It made me think of what would have happened if I'd done something like that at his age. My parents weren't big on spanking and rarely did so, but I suspect that I would have gotten a good smack for something like that. The mother I saw today didn't hit him, at least in the time I was within sight and earshot. But I obviously wonder what kind of relationship they have that he'd use language like that.

On a totally unrelated note I sure wish I could get rid of that white space above my posts right now, as it annoys me as much as I'm sure it annoys visitors. Hopefully I can figure out what's wrong soon.
