Re: your July 24 article, â€œContinuing the familyâ€?:
This should have been called "Continuing the dysfunctional family." Whose ridiculous idea was it to glorify such disgusting behavior? The photos of the happy little couple that statistics assure us will be splitsville and on welfare within two years were truly moving.
Two teenagers having babies and following a stupid pattern within their family tree was the opposite of what I want to read about in my local newspaper. Let's hope no other teenagers read this mess and get ideas. Unfortunately, however, I'm sure they've sent copies to everyone they know, feeling proud of their accomplishment.
What in the world is The Star thinking? It clearly has no concept of family values. Good riddance to bad rubbish!
