My Kingdom for Some Norplant
There was a story last week that nearly got away from me, and after I read it I wish it had.
The Indy Star reported on a 43-year old woman was who attacked at an east side hotel by a man who was the father of some her 20 children.
Yes, that’s right, 20 kids and he fathered some of them.
You can read the details of the story for yourself, but when the cops showed up, it was 4 a.m., she was drunk and pregnant with child number 21.
The woman had 20 kids. Are you kidding me? The only thing worse than this woman’s uterus being the functional equivalent of a clown car, is the fact, which I am willing to bet my Superman comics and Davidoff cigars, that she was not footing the bill for her brood, we were.
You all have figured out by now that I have one heck of a social libertarian streak and I frankly don’t care what consenting adults do in the privacy of their own homes, until it either encroaches on my property or costs me money.
The fact this woman had 20 kids, was working on lucky number 21 drunk and probably trying to hook up one her babies' daddies, is pretty clear evidence that she has likely already cost us money and somehow I get the sneaking suspicion that some of her children will be encroaching on our properties in the form of a residential burglary or car break in.
Some days I really think instead of handing out cash to some people to fight poverty we should to hand out Norplant, at least this way we can mitigate some of this counterproductive behavior.
