    THE DOWNSIDE OF GOOGLE-NEWS I googled “homeschooling” and came back with this hair-raising sentence:

    This is why we’re totally against home-schooling.

    Of course, I had to read the whole article to find out why. It’s tongue-in-cheek.

    “Now, more than ever before, youth are relying on the adults in their lives for reassurance and guidance.’

    This is bad news for our kids, who have been raised thus far with an incredibly jumpy father. A UPS truck rumbles down our block and we’re apt to scream “EARTHQUAKE!’ and snatch our kids and hurl them through the living room picture window for their own safety. About the most reassuring thing we’ve ever uttered to our children is “RUN FOR YOUR LIVES!’

    This is why we’re totally against home-schooling. We rely on schools not only to teach our kids about guns and sex, but also about the horrors of war, terrorism and other traumatic events. Because, after you strip away our almost transparent veneer of bravado, we’re pretty much always packed and ready to bolt.

    Mildly amusing.
