It takes a village to raise a child

And y'all are letting me down! Mookie started her 'Dead Guy of the Day' posts, and so far she's only gotten a couple of comments about being a troubled child. Heck, I already knew that.

So the parenting gene kicked in (translation: my wife told me I'd better deal with my child), and I'm steering her morbid sense of humor towards a quest to learn more about capital punishment and the debate surrounding the issue. Hence the recent descriptions about methods of execution and even a little bit about her personal feelings on the subject.

Which is more than you folks are doing. C'mon people, in modern society everyone else is responsible, so if she grows up sick and twisted then she's a chip off the ol' block it's your fault too!

While you're there, engage her by leaving thoughtful comments. Challenge her, make her think. And don't forget to give her hell about her spelling and grammar too. Heaven knows she doesn't listen to me anymore, and lately that frightens me.

I am over 50 and my spelling still sucks.
What I do when I write longer posts is write them first in a text editor (I use Textpad) that has spellcheck. When I am done I just cut and paste the spellchecked text.
I usually puts the links in later because that is easier to do that way with Movable Type.
Textpad is shareware I think, you can download it for free and if you like it the cost to register is not steep.

I've been after her to use her spell checker, and she does sometimes. I can tell when she has, because she'll have perfect spelling while using the wrong words: "what ever" instead of "whatever" or "affect" when she means "effect". Drives me crazy. :) (short drive)
