Happy Fathers' Day

Oh boy, here we are again, Fathers' Day. Time to trot out the dad-hating axe-grinders. Last year at about this time, I found several articles having a go at fathers in general. This year, I haven't really looked all that hard, but Gill Hornby (guess the gender) really takes the cake. The Daily Telegraph, a major, right-leaning paper, publishes an appallingly vitriolic rant on the uselessness of fathers, in which Fathers' Day is argued to rank alongside Watergate for notoriety. Thanks Gill, I hope you get a lump of coal for Mothers' Day, assuming you've done the world the disfavor of reproducing.
