Grant’s “Newspaper” — it was news to me!
My 10yo son Grant decided to create a newspaper for his journal assignment this morning. He was so pleased with himself, he ripped it out of his notebook and stuck it to the fridge.
However, I thought that his Obama article couldn’t possibly be true. I asked him, “Where did you hear about that?”
“At Grandpa’s. It was on his XM radio.” (That was my husband’s Dad, who kept the older two boys overnight last weekend so my hubby and I could take a quick trip for our anniversary.)
Then, I Googled it. Grant had heard right. (Although it’s actually one man and one woman, not two men.) I think that bit of “reaching out” is taking it WAY too far, like the three little pigs trying to make peace with the big bad wolf by opening their home to him… Doesn’t Obama read Aesop? Not that the three little pigs is an Aesop fable. But, that plan just has foolishness written all over it, IMO, and unfortunately, I think it leaves the U.S. vulnerable to wind up as the moral of a tragic Aesop-style story.
