Comments for: I’m perfect. My sister’s dumb, fat and lazy. Is there a reason my parents love me more?

    Why is this taking up space on the front page????????????

      Because the syndication fees are cheap?  I’m with you – this lady is a waste of newsprint, ink and the electrons it chews up to be available on the BDN webpage.

        And yet, you read it and, more telling, YOU FEEL A FREAKING NEED TO COMMENT.

          Cranky, exactly my thought.   :-)

  • This is like Jerry Springer in print every week. What a bunch of garbage I can’t believe this lady is paid to write this trash.

      But still…you read it!

    There is a reason this type of column appears in Slate — it’s a magazine written for an adult audience. This should not be in a community newspaper. The editors should consider whether they’d want their children to read this. Yes, children do read newspapers.

      I don’t have a problem with letting my kids read the paper, and I don’t understand why you feel this particular article is so much worse than much of the news in the paper.

      Don’t know about you, but I TALK to my kids about what they read and think about.

        Like you, I have no problem letting my kids read the newspaper and I TALK to my kids about what’s in the paper. But the topics in this “entertainment/lifestyle” column — the one above is tamer than most — are for adult audiences (they’re not “news” per se) and that’s why they’re in Slate and should stay there.

    Dear Golden Child,

    I don’t want therapy, I don’t need therapy, I’m not going to go to therapy, and I’m not going to foot the therapy bill for you and your fat, dumb, and lazy sister.  Our family is functioning just fine without your narcissistic intermeddling.  This is the kind of stupid idea I’d expect from your sister or that sob sister Prudence and her popular psychologist friends, not from you.

    So forget about it.  It’s not going to happen.  Not even as a present.

    With love,

    your mother

    Do your sister a favor and disown your twisted parents.

       Ditto. But first get in their face and tell it like it is. They won’t listen but you’ll feel better. Your time is up. Give the money to my receptionist on your way out.

    “I’m perfect.”  ?????

    How humble  . . .

      The letter writer NEVER claimed to be perfect-she was stating that her PARENTS actually referred to her as the perfect child. Then again, I suspect that my comment to you will be a lost cause because all you want to do is complain.

        To be quite frank, I find all your comments on any topic to be insipid.

        • Anonymous

          Why do you read them if you already know they are insipid?  Do you like to get into a huff?

            I didn’t look for Cranky. His comment was emailed to me.
            Do you like practicing pop psychology?

          I was just trying to be funny.  I’m sure you’re perfect, too.

     I thought this was a real newspaper, not some trashy tabloid.
