How I missed a chance to save the world from additional suffering

I wish I'd had a video and audio recorder running this morning. If we could have captured the struggle to get our beautiful kids fed and clothed before taking them to daycare, I could have packaged it up, entitled it "Birth Control" and single handedly put the brakes on our global population explosion.

I guess we might have had to translate the actual words, of which there were few, into several foreign languages to get the full effect, but the screaming, crying, and visibly bad behavior by nearly all parties would have required no translation at all.
