Later this morning, when I see the Dear Reader surrounded by his kiddie human shields in a demagogic attempt to trample on your 2nd amendment rights, I’ll be thinking about this story.
From the Chicago Tribune:
The mother of a 3-year-old boy who was found alone running down the sidewalk in West Englewood neighborhood overnight has been charged with child endangerment, police said.
It was unclear how long the boy had been outside, police said. But despite the bitter cold — it was 19 degrees at Midway Airport at 11 p.m., according to the National Weather Service — the boy was determined to be in good condition. …
He was wearing a black down coat, a red Nike hooded sweatshirt and a black winter hat with the word “Obama” on it. (emphasis mine) He was also wearing black and white Adidas gym shoes and blue jeans inscribed with the words “D.J. Bottoms,” police said.
They found his mother. I’m sure that, at this very minute, his dad is rushing to see what happened to his son.
