Balanced Education

While trying to rear holy kids, one also worries about turning them into pious little weenies. On the way home from Confession & Holy Mass the other night, we heard a story on the radio about al-Qaeda planning Christmas plots all over the world. From the back seat arose the strains of a familiar carol:

On the fifth day of Christmas, Osama gave to me

5 cell phone rings
to trigger 4 exploding planes,
3 IEDs
2 backpack bombs
and a video from al-Zawahri.

Not to worry on that score, I guess. Maybe about some other things.
