Poundstone’s Problems

Posted:

Last year comedian Paul Poundstone lost custody of her three adopted children because she drove drunk with them. Now, I’m not going to say I support drunk driving, because I don’t. However, both my brothers and my father have been four sheets to the wind while dragging me around. Is this safe? Hell no. All of them have been in automobile accidents. Should I have been removed from my family? Hell no. Nobody is perfect and one can only hope that the legal barrier that allows the state to take children away from their parents is sufficiently high.

On the other hand if Poundstone forced her kids to watch Survivor, I would not only endorse the remove of her children, but also the immediate liquidation of them. Some things you can mess around with.
