Monday Smiles
I needed a smile today:

The confident, resilient, self-reliant kids mostly grew up to be liberals.

I got a huge kick out of this post.

I don't know how valid the research is, but it's not just some anecdotal nonsense.

And it's funny as hell!

I read somewhere today a line about conservatives having been wrong on the issues thoughout history. Funny, because that fits in nicely with this post.
