Dark Roots: Childless In The City

I like kids. Not enough to have one of my own, but I like them. Especially the ones that can walk, talk, and fetch me Diet Coke. When I was a kid, children were a form of cheap labor — “Take out the garbage!” “Clean your room!” — and we did not commingle with adults.
