The First Father Celebrates Himself

On this father's day:

"Nurturing families come in many forms, and children may be raised by a father and mother, a single father, two fathers, a step father, a grandfather, an exceedingly affectionate elementary school janitor, or caring guardian."
-Barack Obama

OK, I put in the affectionate janitor, but the rest was him. Happy Fathers day, guys.

And remember, the children are counting on us to show them how to live. They don't stand a chance of getting a slumlord to kick in hundreds of thousands of dollars to buy the side yard for their first mansion unless we show them how to get that sort of thing done. They won't know how to get their spouse a no-show $300K job unless we teach them the Chicago Way.
