It's quite something to watch your child grow up. Much is expected, and comes as no surprise, but much is unexpected. These are the moments that I find more rewarding.
#2 Son is 14. He's not particularly political. But he sent me this:
For those of us who swing libertarian, this sort of thing is the signal, that we have a chance with the next generation. That they can realize that there are a lot of folks who want to prevent them from doing all sorts of things, for their own good.
#2 Son has realized this, and doesn't like it. That he realizes in his gut what the First Amendment means. I think that this is a bright line that he's crossed, and that in a way, will never be a child again, at least not in that way.
