Father's Day 2023Tagged:
So, in the US today it’s Father’s Day.
Why do I have an opinion about Father’s Day?
I mean, you could stretch a point and say that, as a male caregiver, I am the “father” of the Weekend Publisher, shown here surveying the world from his lofty hammock. But not “father” in the way cats do it, because that’s just crazy. So I’m sort of were-human cat-father? 
No, today I just want to share with you the best Father’s Day spirit I have thus far observed:
McNees is a physicist (of which we firmly approve) though he does quantum gravity (which we can forgive). He encourages his kid to keep reading rebelliously under the covers at night, by surreptitiously changing the batteries in her flashlight.
This is How It Is Done, I think.  But I wish I’d had this sort of experience as a kid growing up!
Contrary to the advice from everybody everywhere, I also read the comments. Some are pretty good, even years later:
Yep, nothing like a little solidarity from the Parental Units to bolster a kid.
Yes, indeed: temptation works both ways. The light side of The Force underutilizes it.
The Weekend Conclusion
Kids these days! You have long-lived LED flashlights.
Back in my day, all we had D cells that were always dying, and crummy little bulbs that were always burning out.
