It's nice to know that we can still pick up a paper and read an article that makes us feel good about ourselves on an individual basis. Naturally that feeling may involve a feeling of superiority over the people in the article. I hope that all of my friends would feel this way after reading the following story I found in Newsday today.
The story in the "At Home" section of the paper begins with: "A western Pennsylvania mother has been charged with giving her 13-year-old daughter drugs and alcohol so that the woman's boyfriend could impregnate the girl without her knowing..."
In all fairness the woman claims that she wanted more children and was no longer able to do so and she figured her daughter had some time on her hands...
Furthermore the union was going to be made okay by her insistence that the two get married after conception thus negating any possible rape charge.
A spokesman from West Virginia has voiced his support for the action calling it, "Courtship."
Aren't you all feeling just a bit superior now?
