In The April issue of Readers Digest, a writer laments the only disturbing event recorded in his memoir is that his parents had his dog put down and then said the dog went to live on a farm. Not every memoir has to be miserable, but "misery memoirs" do an important job of showcasing certain segments of society.
There is an item in the March 26 issue of Maclean's about how Tory Stafford's mother got criticized for letting the little girl take the five minute walk to school on her own. It was only a five minute walk. We are way too safety conscious in this society.
The April 2 issue of Maclean's has an article about girls going on YouTube and replying to videos while wearing revealing clothing. This is unfortunately due to the fact these girls have realized baring your body is how you get ahead in our world today.
