Update: David Frum's Diary via Jack's Newswatch - "Skipping Down the Slippery Slope"
Now here's something that I want to remember. David says:
I'm reminded of something Evelyn Waugh once wrote to his friend Nancy Mitford: He said that because she had no understanding of the implications of her (left-wing) politics, that for her the future was always full of lovely surprises. Whereas he had to live through every catastrophe twice, once in anticipation, and then again in reality ....
That is the story of my life.

David Quist from Institute of Marriage and Family Canada -
"What we do know from social science research right now is that children raised by their married biological mom and dad do best, but we also know that's not a fact of life for a lot of kids out there," he said. "Let's put in (some policy) that supports the outcomes for the children the best we can, rather than going the other direction."
