Weighing advice from readers

One reader thinks I ought to be campaigning for people to have no more than one child.

I'm sure that would be hugely popular. I could ditch the cute-kid sayings and start scolding grandparents.

"Hey, Lou. It says here that if we care about the environment we should not have any kids."

"Good advice. Unfortunately for us, it comes about 30 years too late. But I'm glad the paper is telling us how to live our lives."

"Besides telling us that public-sector unions will be the ruin of society, you mean?"

"Yeah. Besides that."
