What Does It Take?
October 8th, 2005

What does it take? Influential sources seem to disagree.

On BookTV today is someone who seems to think that It Takes a Parent. Rick Santorum, who appears to actually believe all that “God” business, disagrees. It Takes a Family, he says.

Hillary Clinton isn’t content with the scope of her political opponent’s book, and tells us through her ghostwriter that It Takes a Village. But even she has her detractors who think that It Takes a Dog to Raise a Village. And keep the Knights Templar from aiming their radiation beam at your brain, I guess, I don’t know.

Where do I fall in the Great Pap Debate? For the most part I think I side with those who say, It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back.
