I Have a New Article on Cracked and Only a Few of the Comments are about my Baldness

When it comes to parenting, does nurture trump nature? This Cracked article decisively puts the nature vs. nurture controversy to rest forever and ever.


My latest article is up on Cracked, which has one of my favorite comment sections. (Seriously – it’s really thoughtful.) The article is about nature versus nurture when it comes to parenting. The readers are asking a lot of good questions and making some good points both in agreement and disagreement with my thesis. That said, these are my two favorite reader comments so far:

“Brought to me by a writer who looks like he’s been on COPS more than once. Fun.”

To which someone responded:

“Just because a guy is big and bald, doesn’t mean that there’s anything wrong with him.”

I’d like to buy that second commenter a steak.
