Denton's Children's Advocacy Center declined a check from an organization called Tattooed Hippie Pirate Mamas, which raised the money by selling a pinup calendar of its members. Was that the right decision?
Every family has its myths. Some are intended to reveal, and some are intended to conceal, and sometimes the intentions can get confused. The problem with myth, however, is that it can overpower history. That’s what happened in the case of my father, who died when I was four. Only when I finally learned the truth about him could I come to appreciate him as a real person.
