diaper salesmen, take note

By Phil Lawler (bio - articles ) | Sep 24, 2007

A CWN reader sent this story about a very busy extended family.

They're only doing what comes naturally, but they're doing it with style-- and a key ingredient, a healthy sense of humor-- and this clip from a local TV newscast is worth many thousands of pro-life bumper stickers.

It's also an antidote to the Monday-morning blahs. Enjoy.

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:

    Personal Note: Twice, we had three children in diapers at one time. This was before Pampers! We couldn't afford the coin-operated diaper in the apartment, so the washed diapers were dried in a cold basement. Oh yes, it was a challenge to come home to every commode filled with a soiled diaper soaking. "Those were the days, my friend" ala The Honeymooners.

    " . . . your children, like olive plants around your table. Happy shall you be a favored," What a marvelous story. This cheered up my whole day.
