My 2¢ worth re: Britney

I'm not a mother. I've never been a mother. So I can't say with complete conviction that losing physical custody of her two kids is the most wrenching thing that could possibly happen to Britney Spears.

In fact, I believe it's possible that she's relieved that she no longer has physical custody of those boys. After all, she wasn't legally required to give them up until tomorrow, and since I've seen photos of them near K-Fed's house already, I guess she handed them over yesterday. That doesn't sound like a woman who is agonizing about missing quality time with her boys.

Maybe Britney Spears realizes that she's a mess … knows that she is overwhelmed by demons … senses that her sons would do better with their less famous, less scrutinized, less complicated dad. It could be that handing them over to their father (that's their father, not some bureaucratic foster care system!) is the most loving thing she could do for those kids right now.

Heads & Tails #6

The theme for this week's Heads and Tails is "stacks." The primary stacks around my home are magazines and books and paper. I am forever heading downstairs to the "Paper Only" recycle bin with back issues of Time, Newsweek and Entertainment Weekly, as well as shredded credit card statements and empty envelopes. I try to be neat, but I have come to believe that this condo is paper self-generating.
