Lenny Bruce was ahead of his time…..

today he could be a dandy replacement for the late Mr. Rogers…….

Let me see if I’ve got this right. About fifteen years ago, a single parent friend of mine…..he has a PhD in education…..was overseeing the morning rituals with his two teenage sons when one of them….I think he was 13….kind of curled his lip or something and announced he was taking the day off. I recall trying that one with my own father once. The operative word is “once”.

Anyway, my friend did what any good parent would have done under the circumstances and chucked his errant son’s jacket to him across the room and instructed him to put it on and don’t be late. The young man complied and all was good.

Unfortunately, the little tab on the jacket zipper glanced off the boy’s cheek and left a mark. My friend called me in a panic right after he received the call from the Department of Human Services that an investigator would be stopping by.

Nothing came of it, except the young DHS lady (I mean first job out of college young) got an easy practice case to find her sea legs with.

Fast forward to two thousand and twelve, and four year old “Destiny” strutted out on the “Toddlers and Tiaras” stage all gussied up like a street whore and puffing on a fake cigarette under the drooling tutelage of her mother, Lisa. They’ll all be paid handsomely, of course, no matter how obscene the presentation. The staff will keep their jobs. The TV station will keep its ratings up.

Question:…………..never mind.
