My elder daughter, Thing 1, was given a school assignment to find an article in a newspaper or magazine, cut it out, read it, and write a summary of it. She found an article in the Atlanta Journal Constitution about the current salmonella crisis here in the US, which is both current and local, seeing as how the source of much of the outbreak is a peanut processing plant here in Georgia.
I found, what I believed, was an even better article. A story in the sports section about our favorite hockey team beating our hated cross-river rivals.
Thing 1 took a look at the story, smiled, nodded her head, and said, "I'm totally changing it to write about this story instead."
If Thing 1 can spread the gospel to a group of 4th Graders that the NY Rangers suck, then I've done my job as a parent.
