When everyone else is running through the stores looting all the twinkies, he'll head over to the section where the mason jars are stacked. It's not like he'll need that many: when you empty one, you wash it and use it again.

Comment Re:How to get off scott free for any crime: (Score 1) 286

Personally, I do want to live in a society where the rule of law dictates that a guilty person must be set free because the manner in which evidence is collected has been determined to be illegal. In fact, I think I *do* live in that society (U.S.A.), although I often have my doubts.

No matter how disappointing the result, I think it is a good thing that the judges in this case made their decision based on the law, rather than how they feel about a particular defendant.

Sounds like your wife got all of motherhood and half of fatherhood ;-)

I experienced the same thing. When I was alone and in charge, everyone got fed, bathed, bandaged, etc. Everyone survived despite the fact that mom was at work. When she was home, I didn't do things "right".

What I discovered over the years (kids are now 15, 13, and 11) is that if you are patient, the children will make your argument for you. Eventually, if she isn't completely delusional, she will realize she doesn't know any more than anyone else. At that point she will welcome the opportunity to share the decision making as well as the blame.

Of course, it probably helps in my situation that we usually agree, and love each other, and our mutual goal is to get the kids raised well enough that they can get jobs and move out of the house.
