Here’s the Problem: Local NY news is all abuzz over David Anderson who jumped into the East River this weekend to save his 2 year old daughter. Tauted as a “hero”, David is the press’s new Sully Sullenberger.
Actual Problem: All of these articles suspiciously leave out how the kid landed in the river in the first place. The way I see it, if you have a 2-year-old and you’re walking along a dock, you don’t let go of that kid’s hand. And if you do (asshole) you don’t get a laurel crown for then saving the life YOU endangered.
**Thank you to Elana Miller for this problem. She may not have any kids, but she’s still a better parent than this dick.
