I have to keep reminding myself that Joe Romm comes from a journalism family. Because it escapes me how he could take issue with this rapturous story getting front page treatment in yesterday's NYT.
Abby Haddad Carson and Robert Carson say Saturday is Judgment Day; the children, Joseph, Faith and Grace, right, do not.
The story not only has a legitimate news hook, but it's also poignant, disturbing and, as the headline suggests, even humorous. It also does what journalism does at its best--connect a larger phenomenon to a personal story, of which, in this case, most anyone with parents and siblings will be able to relate to.
