Time for some judgment: kids on leahes

Article in the online Seattle PI about a dustup regarding Judge Judy telling people that leashes are for dogs. Published in the Vancouver (Washington) Sun. A hundred e-mails pro-leash appear, many saying that the people in question just can't keep up with young children who walk around on their own two feet.

Let me submit that this is a piss poor excuse, and that it speaks more to the state of American society, where people are surprisingly willing to offload their responsibilities to devices, psychiatric drugs, and aspergers instead of manning (and wommaning) up and confronting difficulty.
