No one likes the ugly apparently. Of course the article never mentions how you measure ugliness. Is there a scientific ugliness tool they have in Canada that they might be able to share with the rest of us? And of course maybe the children have become ugly because the parents let their children do whatever they want and so they keep falling down out of trees and shopping carts and breaking their faces. The other underlying assumption is that grocery stores are incredibly dangerous places and that by tying your kid into a shopping cart, you are protecting it. In any case, it's pretty cynical. On a mildly related note, I'm getting sick of movies that have no ugly people in them. (or normal for that matter.) Commercials are just as bad. Sometimes you just have to rent an English film just to see normal looking people onscreen. I think having a blog has become too much responsibility.
