Christmas Priorities in America

A NYTimes article on mothers' sacrifices says little that is new or admirable, but the link here is worth following to read the Comments. Take note of international readers' reactions, both pro and con.

On a peripheral note, I had this reaction to the photograph in the story: Gee, the boxes for the Grand Walk-In Kitchen (presumably the child's upcoming Christmas gift) have no illustration. Oh, my gosh, is that so parents can store the box in the garage in plain sight of the children?

I wholeheartedly agree. Luckily most of the comments frowned upon the attitudes expressed in the article. Very few commenters commended the woman's sacrifice of delaying her purchase of designer jeans.
