Mitch Albom: When did fathers become expendable? | Detroit Free Press | freep.com.

The first time I ever heard of Mitch Albom, was when he was just a sportswriter for the Detroit Free Press.  Although I think  he has tried to branch out a bit much over couple decades, I absolutely loved Tuesdays with Morrie.  In fact, it’s the first novel that I taught as a student teacher.

I think he raises some great points in this piece.  The furthering of certain agendas – including but not limited to those of lesbian couples and single mothers  – has not only pushed their respective agendas, but also diminished the role of men and fathers in our society as well.  I don’t think it was through any malice; it’s just the way the cultural pendulum shifts after the status quo in one particular extreme for do many years.
