Ask a 10-year-old



When your kids start reading it’s great, they pick up story books about bunnies and fairies, and everybody sighs shamelessly in a warm glow of self-congratulations. But the next moment you turn around they’re ordering vodka and cigarettes off the internet using your credit card (mitigating factor: points accrue).

So now I have a house full of  “readers” who access “stuff” on the internet. So of course they have started reading Portdaddia and have begun the eternal complaint everywhere, that parents just don’t “get it.”

I realize that most Portdaddia readers have had the thought that if  they were in my shoes things might be done “just a wee bit different.”

In the spirit of fair-mindedness I let my daughter vent on her unwilling elevation to content provider.

Take Picasso's Guernica for instance. In June 1937, Picasso finished painting the Modernist classic in response to another April tragedy: the bombing of the Spanish city of Guernica during the civil war. It was his anguished creativity reacting to George Steer's eyewitness account of the incident.

  3. But the men that went up with him said, We be not able to go up against the people; for they are stronger than we. And they brought up an evil report of the land which they had searched unto the children of Israel, saying, The land, through which we have gone to search it, is a land that eateth up the inhabitants thereof; and all the people that we saw in it are men of a great stature. And there we saw the giants, the sons of Anak, which come of the giants: and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight.
