does no one realize that robin hood was a terrible role model for young kids? i mean you are stealing from people (illegal) and those people (usually) worked hard to get their wealth. it really demotivates people to succeed when they know they can get something someone else worked for.

is this what rich people worry about lmao

who knew the sheriff of nottingham had a blog

The Mets had Tuesday off before resuming the series Wednesday. Murphy remained with his family through Wednesday as he was placed on paternity leave and rejoined the Mets in time for Thursday’s afternoon game against the Nats. “You’re a major league baseball player. You can hire a nurse,” Mike Francesa reportedly said of Murphy on WFAN Radio during Wednesday’s show. “What are you gonna do, sit there and look at your wife in the hospital bed for two days?”

Daniel Murphy of New York Mets deflects criticism for taking paternity leave - ESPN New York

I tried to explain how I feel about criticism of a ballplayer who took his collectively-bargained right to 3 crummy days of paternity leave when his child was born, but the searing-red patriarchy hate nearly shut down my synapses, y’all.

But here’s a hint: If you’re the kind of douchebag who thinks a hired nurse is an acceptable substitute for the presence of the child’s parent*, you are probably the kind of person who SHOULD be replaced by a paid professional in your home life.

Instead, let’s talk about how paternity leave was only introduced LAST SEASON, and it’s only THREE DAYS. What freaking YEAR is this?

*No disrepect to nurses, who are undoubtedly super-helpful at home postpartum. But that doesn’t make them a substitute for your life partner and co-parent, and they aren’t intended to be.

Going on church retreat this weekend.

Seeing the fiddler on Tuesday!

Getting along beautifully with my partner.

Life is mostly great.

The only negative is a very good friend of mine is very ill and it’s looking like he might not make it. Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers.
