A few links for your Friday morning:
- The sole Protestant member of the Supreme Court may soon be stepping down, which raises the question: Does the religious make-up of the Court make a difference?
- Despite modern families’ feeling busier than ever before, a recent study shows that parents are actually spending more one-on-one time with their kids than 15 years ago, and that they have more leisure time than their parents. Dads manage by spending less time at work, while moms spend less time cooking and cleaning — so don’t feel bad about slacking off a little.
- It’s estimated that, after deductions and credits, 49 percent of Americans won’t pay income taxes this year. Something tells me I’m not going to be one of those 49 percent.
- When I said yesterday that I wanted to avoid the funeral industry racket, this isn’t what I had in mind.
