Father hunger

Following the appalling massacre in Conneticut, there's a debate in the media about the issues of gun ownership. And that's right. The murderer had a gun; a powerful one; should he? Should anyone? Discuss.

But I notice pretty much zero comment and debate on the fact that the murderer had no father in his life. That's the elephant in the room for the culture's gatekeepers.

Read this article and weep; it's full of staggering and shocking facts; here's just one - the majority of black children in America grow up with only one parent. Where's the shock and outrage from politicians, newspaper columnists, chat-show hosts etc. over that fact?
