Happy Father's Day

It's easy to rant that mothers and mothering is underrated but I think fathers and fathering gets even less credit, if that's possible.

While biologically everyone has a dad and you can write volumes about having an active, participatory, valued father, in practice they are often portrayed as an appendage. Beyond Ward Cleaver and unmagical Darren, even in this day and age fathers get about as much credit for raising their kids as the quintessential father's day gift -the hardly make or break wardrobe accessory - the necktie.

So go out and hug your own dad, or your kids' dad or the dad closest to you.
