All his kids went to college, and his grandkids count many doctoral level degrees among them. But he worked harder. So did his kids, one of whom, my 90-year-old Mom, voted for Obama last November. When she was 5, it was her job, as the oldest girl, to make the fire in the stove in the winter before everyone else got up.

    Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me. Matthew 25:40
