I’ve been snarky about RYS’ editing decisions in the past, and I’m sure I will be in the future, but you have to love this juxtaposition:

[letter 1] if all parents cared for and nurtured their children as I did mine, this website wouldn’t exist. Don’t let them run wild, and you’ll never have a day’s worry.

[letter 2] Like all of the other breeders, professors who are also parents are blind about their own kids, whether it be in the sandbox or in the classroom.

And, RYS linked The Making of a Snowflake (Newsweek). I thought, “wow, Newsweek has picked up on the snowflake thing? That’s great.”

No, Newsweek hasn’t. It’s not great. The comments are truly horrifying.
