      Neighbors ratting out neighbors feels wrong...... but what is the alternative? Imagine being elderly, physically compromised, and scared. I am on the fence with this one.

      It does seem like we are searching and trying to achieve silly useless things. The Mom is a true classic.

      I have a son who has lived on a camper, full time. I wonder how he would have survived, Thankfully he is off the road and in a relatively safe environment. These other people are really stuck.

      Very informative and interesting article. I feel the value of DADS has been socially diminished. Articles like this are refreshing and, for me, rewarding and validating. Personal note , my spouse had a fatherless home and has repeatedly felt the power of the sisterhood shaped her in a positive way. I agree she had an amazing family and a huge support system.... Where we often disagree, I believe the lack of a father has caused her and some of her siblings to devalue the huge benefit that an involved father can add to the family unit. She has often mentioned they were better off without 'him' around. I think that sort of belief carries an unintentional bias about men and their roles in all levels of society. Super Simplification..... Dads are good!

      Same ole stuff. If they can not see it or feel it , it does not exist. It may never be the exact right time to ease restrictions and it may be a regional thing but why are people politicizing this. Reference to the Tea Party is rich.... Tea Party was formed to keep the national debt from exploding and created by a highly conservative faction that made some valid points. Personally I disagree with those points but agree with their right to express those opinions..... Here's the rub... those same people are now responsible for massive debt increases but since it is being framed and pushed by the conservative agenda it seems to be OK and ignored. Strange

      I do enjoy an old fashioned printed newspaper ... I get both e-news and printed and both have value, but the printed versions feel better and I like finishing the paper and knowing it is done. e-papers just go on forever.

      What a mess...... thousands of victims. I never let my sons join the BSA. It just had a creepy vibe. I was a boyscout, for one week, told my dad "No Thanks!" He never made me or my brother go back.

      This is troubling, I have always believed that everything is connected and the physical is determined by the mental (and visa-versa) this article puts that feeling on steroids. (no semi-pun intended).

      My first 10 rating..... not because of exceptional writing or clever quips but the content is so interesting. I was watching Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel last night, a segment was how kids are 10x more prone to have surgery now than 12 years ago..... the reason is they are pushed to excel in ONE sport, soccer, tennis , football whatever..... This must be the parents pushing these kids, they could not possibly know that they don't want to swim or play baseball, anyway the repetitive nature of training on these young bodies has created a generation of injured young children..... if they would be exposed to all sports and activities for sheer fun the injuries would be drastically reduced...... I see a direct correlation to this article, spread out the mind, the experiences, see what sticks on these kids.........ok, back to the article, imagine polymaths in this article being pigeon holed into one path, what a crime..... I had the ability to do what ever I wanted as a kid and young adult, never really excelled in any single field but loved the paths I took..... sports, art, business, writing, music.... I value all these experiences and am so grateful that I never focused too much on only one talent (or lack of talent) anyway.... by far the best article. thanks for posting!

      When does feeling grateful for my life begin to feel kinda piggy?..... I am lost and conflicted at times but I do not want to lose the emotion of being grateful for the things I have worked for.... but there is no denying I have and my kids have had many more opportunities than the kids and people in this article.... Yes we work for the things we have but it is still so unfair.

      Kinda disturbing.... I am not sure a therapist would say anything like "So what's wrong with you again?" and the meds are wack, but Josh's suffering is real and hard to read...... anyway very some touching and poignant moments. Gets my first 10 rating!

      great insight..... It is very personal, I agree with everything written but there was so much omitted, I think older friendships do fade because of changing lifestyles but new relationships that are more current do crop up ..... I value my older friends and do try to keep in touch with old school buddies, and work buddies and all kinds of older relationships, but the newer people I become attached to seem to be in the same emotional space that I orbit.... It is still super fun to run into old friends and catch-up, then we end with the "We should try to keep more in touch." ...... but we seldom do.

      Lots of facts and a somewhat dry read but a great source of info and insight to the new face of retail..... 2 things that were not addressed in enough detail, 1. the environmental impact on the planet. 2. the impact on small retailers. I am a small retailer (liquor store) and have a nagging fear that we might lose a large % of our sales to an Amazon-ish mindset...... I found the last mile data interesting. I am conflicted with this type of E-Shopping and cannot deny the connivence, but what will be the true cost to lost downtowns, and the demise of local shops. Anyway, tons of info on an issue that is important to me and my family. THX.

      Sometimes we don't intend to signal and we are accused of doing so...... I drive a crappy car because I rarely drive and don't really use or need any of the bells and whistles that the new cars have..... I am regularly asked if I am trying to make a point because I drive a vehicle that people believe to be well below my means. HA, that is so annoying, but I am somewhat self-aware that I look ruddier than I actually feel I am. I feel pressured to drive a new more suitable car at times so I do not send out the wrong signal...... What have we humans become? BTW I have no plans to buy the Range Rover my kids insist I drive.

      I would like to know how long people stay in tech jobs. It seems like bouncing around is common. Some of these perks might be needed to persuade new talent, then it seems to get in the way of productivity.... an odd dilemma.
