I was part of a movement of "dinosaur moms" when I lived in Maryland (Astrodon Johnstoni is the Maryland state dinosaur.) Which is nothing more than this -- dinosaur moms delight in the half-feral nature of the beasties they parent, even as they whisper Shakespeare and Kierkegaard in their ears at night.

But when ya start carryin' pictures of Chairman Mao

Does it bother anyone else that CNN insists on referring to the PRC as "Communist China?" As in "More disturbing recall news from Communist China." It's not that it's inaccurate, EXACXTLY. But, hey, as long as you're channeling Archie Bunker, why not go all the way and call it Red China? Why not just say "The pinkos are trying to poison our children again!" ?
