Children in need

Posted By on Fri, Nov 14, 2008 at 9:06 AM

Since the item has moved on down the blog list and most people won't see it, I'd like to call attention to a reader comment added this morning to the report of the arrest of a woman whose infant children were found in her apartment without a sitter while she worked at a hotel.

I can't verify the commenter, of course, but the comment has the ring of credibility. At a minimum, it notes some of the factors that could contribute to an episode such as this. It'as also a reminder about how hard life can be for people with families trying to scrape by on low-wage jobs. The comment is at the end of the string. Those who made harsh judgments are particularly urged to take a look.
