Didn't She Ever Read Dickens? (Or a History Book?)

March 20, 2011

Whoever killed Missouri State Senator Jane Cunningham’s bill to gut the child labor laws, thank you.

Whoever voted her into office, please don’t do it again.

(Cunningham's rationale was that having jobs helped her kids grow up to be responsible adults. I wish that all parents and employers were as pure of heart as she is, and would only use child labor to benefit the children. I would also like to find the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow and to meet the tooth fairy.)
