    Another victory for conservative morons.
    This is what passes for good judgement in deep-Red states like Texas.

    Something here is not adding up. The vogue in child protective services -- due in part to the the influence of child psychologists with an assist from budget cuts -- is to leave kids with the biological parents unless things are absolutely dangerous. Pot does not qualify. The dad says the girl was taken from the home due to pot, but there has been no other confirmation of this. I'd love to hear what Texas CPS has to say about why this child was removed from her mom and dad's home.

    I cannot stand the premature death of children. I am mystified as to why this country is so nonchalant about protecting children and teenagers. Infuriating.
