I have been here for less than a year, and have enjoyed many projects and blogs. I like being able to share in
friendships and projects while setting on the sidelines, and if I think I have something helpful to add, or just
can not resist the impulse, being able put in my own comment. I want to thank Martin and all the others
behind the scenes who make this such a wonderful site, and also all you fellow Lumberjocks who fill it with
so many worthwhile thoughts, projects and ideas. Thanksgiving is much more enjoyable this year because
of all of you, so with Charles Dickens and many other let me say “May God bless you, everyone.” I hope
you all have a Happy Thanksgiving, and get to share it with those who are special to you.

Alas, it is a time to be thankful, until I read this today in the paper. What is this world coming to!?

Wisconsin judge gives 7 year old right to decide custody

A seven year old boy was at the center of a county courtroom drama yesterday when he challenged a court ruling over who should have custody of him. The boy had a history of being beaten by his parents and the judge initially awarded custody to his aunt, in keeping with child custody law and regulation requiring that family unity be maintained to the highest degree possible.

The boy surprised the court when he proclaimed that his aunt beat him more than his parents and he adamantly refused to live with her. When the judge then suggested that he live with his grandparents, the boy cried and said that they also beat him.. After considering the remainder of the immediate family and learning that domestic violence was apparently a way of life among them, the judge took the unprecedented step of allowing the boy to propose who should have custody of him.

After two recesses to check legal references and confer with the child welfare officials, the judge granted temporary custody to the Minnesota Vikings, whom the boy firmly believes are no longer capable of beating anyone.

Have a Happy Thanksgiving Everyone! ;-)
