Nice post about, yes, old-fashioned childhood on a blog called “Eco Bling.” My favorite paragraph:
Ask yourselves this summer: Do kids really need to watch a full length film in the backseat of a car!? How will they ever learn how many chapters of any given Beverly Cleary book or MAD magazine they can get through without puking? This sort of thing has to be learned on the job.
Happy summer! — Lenore (who — bragging rights here — has actually written for Mad.)
