Miscellaneous Rambling

I feel fortunate that, so far, all seven of my children seem to be turning out alright. Don't get me wrong: I'm not cocky. I know one could make a terrible mistake or go rogue quickly. But then again, I think I have a pretty good parenting sense. For instance: If two gay guys came and asked to take my son out on an overnight trip, I'd say "no." That, apparently, is a parenting sense that a lot of people don't possess these days, as evidenced by this story about parents who knowingly released their sons to go on overnight trips with two gay guys.

BTW: No offense intended for TDE readers who are also fans of the Boy Scouts, an organization that now sanctions overnight, ahem, camping trips with gay adult leaders. But don't worry: the leaders are vetted first.

Neat story: How the Faith of 272 Black Catholic Slaves Has Given Georgetown a New Future. Of course, it's about that bastion of deplorables (chuckle), Georgetown, but it's still a good story. Excerpt: "[T]he Georgetown slaves had not only survived, but thrived, in Louisiana, leaving behind an estimated 10,000 descendants and a rich legacy of Catholic faith. So far, the project has found out what happened to 209 out of the 272 Georgetown slaves, documenting 2,500 descendants back to them."
