Well Gary, it seems like "Common Sense" is an oxymoron for the person who posted it.

It is Great Hollow Lake in Monroe, not Great Hollow Pond...

dave, I am hardly anonymous. My first name is Ann and my last name starts with B. If you met someoneRead More at a party and her name tag said Ann B and you then went on to insult her and her children to her face, would you claim she is anonymous because you don't know her full last name? Would that make the insults okay in your view, both morally and legally okay? The law agrees with me on this dave. If I say I think communists beat their wives, this isn't defamation. No specific real person is named. But if you say Ann B of Wilton is a bad parent, then you are referring to a specific real person. That's defamation. Why not just share your opinion about the topic at hand and leave the personal insults out of it?

dave, if ever you find yourself on the wrong side of the law, you should probably start taking a newRead More approach.

dave, your latest rude posts are also in violation of the rules of this forum. You should be banned.Read More Back to the topic, I think the lazy parents are only fooling themselves - and hurting their own kids in the process. The kids end up with bad grades. The kids don't go to good colleges. This is a lifelong problem for these kids. Sometimes it's even worse, when the lazy parents are the ones hosting the drug and alcohol parties so their kids will be "cool". Sometimes this means their kids will die, but oh well, at least they weren't stifled like the kids of the conscientious parents, right dave?
