Where Was Mom?
TO THE EDITOR:
I do not have a special needs child, but I taught many as a special education teacher. I know special needs children require much more care and attention from the start and know that the Republicans and I really differ on "family values" when they brag about Sarah Palin's return to work three days after her Down syndrome baby was born.
Wow! No parent in that family is willing to take some time off to care for a needy child. I guess their concept is to have the kids and then pass them around to anyone who will take care of them.
It's rather amusing to see the conservative base rally around her, like so many adoring sheep. Lucky for them they're not her kids.
