Happy Father's Day Daddy!

In a culture where we are often occupied with the truly crappy parents of the world, we pause to acknowledge all of those who weren't.

So Happy Father's Day. As the events of the past week demonstrate, daughters need their fathers. Decent, good honorable men, of which there is no shortage, the media just wants us to think it is so.

Obama is supposed to be giving a speech on fatherhood today, let's just hope he leaves out any reference to "pookie" or "Popeye's chicken" as he has been known to do on occasion when lecturing Black audiences.
