Almost forgot the “moment of zen”

    Wednesday's post to this Blog about how foster care policy can be distorted by the tyranny of personal experience included a link to a segment of The Daily Show which, about 4:50 in, perfectly explained the problem. But until Johana Scot of the Parent Guidance Center in Texas reminded me, I'd completely forgotten that the same edition of that program also included the best take anywhere on the invasion of the child savers that followed the earthquake in Haiti.

    Apparently, the missionaries involved in the incident didn't realize that, even in a recession, many child protective services agencies right here at home are still hiring.
