  1. Enjoyed the thorough explanations in the podcast and the footnotes were more than helpful in the article. I look forward to anymore of the types of articles but assume these require more effort than most.

    Honestly, I think it’s disgusting. Regardless of the gender dynamics, it just depicts the lack of moral guidance these days.

    [There was also a fairly controversial case regarding the NHS and Charlie Gard. Where it could be argued that the parent’s were attention seeking (Still no word on what they are doing with the £1.3M. Do they give back to the donor/charity?), the US Dr. wanting to make quick buck out of it and the attack on our staff and medical reputation due to the ordeal.]

    Here’s to the few that continue to be a positive force and to those that care to listen.

    • Yes, Will, I agree with you. You might enjoy the movie “River’s Edge” which came out in the 1980s. A very underappreciated movie that deals with the themes of morally adrift youth.


      • Just read a brief summary and seems like my type of story. I haven’t watched a film in years.

        Thanks a lot Q. Keep up the good stuff while sharing that plethora of knowledge you have in your head.

        Being a good father or mother is definitely undervalued today. Such a shame.
