    those without children and without beau-coup money will be abandoned, though incrementally.

    Greece, for example, as I recall, has the lowest birthrate in the EU. Though Italy is not too far behind.


    hope all you childless ones enjoy your retirement!

    A lot of those problems could be fixed with immigration, unfortunately we usually try to make it harder for people to become citizens.

    One thing that you forget...despite all of that it is moments like that and many many more that easily make up for it.

    Amen! A few years ago, I realized, I was lucky I get to participate in my kids lives. We've had so many good times. Yes, there are dozens of times I marveled at my hubris in bringing them into the world; why did I think I was capable of handling this? Thank goodness, your post is the truth!
