Thursday, March 23, 2006Saw a great, if short, letter to the editor today in the Mississippi Clarion-Ledger. The letter was in response to a prior letter that talked about the need for Mississippi to exempt breastfeeding from the indecency laws.
What a joke! A fuss is made about a young mother breastfeeding her baby in public ("Miss. 'decency' law should exempt breastfeeding moms," Feb. 2 letter), when the fashion of the day is to expose all of the breast possible without going to jail.
In my youth, mothers nursed their babies even in Sunday school; they did, however, keep their clothes on the rest of the time and were prettier for it.

I love it, so simple, so accurate and so...well...real.
Good for Richard Metz. ;)
