3 Cheers for the Mayor of Las Vegas

Told a bunch of school-children that if he were stranded on a desert island he would want to have a bottle of Gin with him.

Wow, he didn't treat the kids as if they were unbreakable, easily scarred trinkets that will ruin society someday if they are, well, exposed to society.

Why does it seem that every one wants to treat kids like mint-condition rookie baseball cards? I like my friend's kids - they are absolutely awesome - but they are actually real human beings with real reactions that include understanding that television is not necessarily real (What?), that adults aren't perfect, and that sometimes they make jokes. Also, I realized that for the most part they make no effort to take us seriously.

I wish the government and those stupid pro-kid (right) activist groups would, you know, take the kids away from the nanny and, like, actually talk to them.

Finally, let me make this point. Though I am happy for you if you have children, I don't want to have my rights and privileges reduced because you decided to have kids.
