Bulloch History with Roger Allen

There were once two second cousins once removed whose names were the same: that is to say they were both named Lewis Lanier. Lewis #1 was born in Brunswick County, Virginia to Sampson Lanier Jr. and Elizabeth Chamberlain in 1753 and Lewis #2 was born in Duplin County, North Carolina to Lemuel Lanier and Sarah Hardy in 1756, separated by a distance of less than one hundred and fifty miles. As growing young men, they sought to serve their country in its time of need.

Living with Children with John Rosemond: A brief list of today's parenting problems

From the I'm Sorry to Have to Tell You Department: Parents who say they want to raise kids who "think for themselves" are not being exactly truthful. It's a nice and very democratic thing to say, for sure, but let's face it, folks: You want your kids to think like you do.
