    I have this image in my head of a child getting spanked (Dennis the Menace?), or Dagwood putting Blondie over his knee. I think Ricky used to do that to Lucy as well.  My siblings and I got the metal kitchen spatula to the butt--often. There was time when it...

    Not Quite...

    I believe we are here to breed. As a by product of evolution we have the capacity to effect change through learning but we must not forget the burden of responsibility that comes with that... to filter out the rubbish and teach.
