Re: AP son beaten
First of all, if you have kids, be a father and raise them.
Don't go around having fifty kids with forty different women and just keep walking away leaving the women to deal with your children. Too many professional athletes do just that, and it sickens me.
There is no amount of money or fame on this earth that could take the place of the pure unadulterated joy of simply being a father. Not only are these loser "no-show" dads missing out, but their kids are missing out. Maybe it is because of the culture they are raised in, since you hear about this being prevalent in certain sectors of society, but it is damn sad.
Second of all, if that is my kid ... "Patterson is scheduled to appear in court later this morning" wouldn't be necessary ...
