Bringing Men and Women back together...before it too late. An exploration of why men have come to manage the world, why they do such a terrible job of it, and what we can do about it while there is still time. Religion, politics, media, art -- are all grist for this mill.

Recruiting Children story not true

I have removed the post "US Military Recruiting 14-year olds" because it turns out it was an April Fool's joke by the original author which was picked up by a newspaper, editied and republished. I was referred to the story after April 1 and tracked it back to the original writer, noting that he sourced it correctly with several sources, which indicated his journalism was good. Unfortunately, he made it up as an April Fool's joke and then forgot to take it down and post an "I fooled you" note. My apologies for any worry caused to readers. A note about the April Fool's joke has also been posted to my other two blogs.
