Best Evidence We're Not Out of the Stone Age Yet 

No Safety Standards for Day Care

Editors' Picks

This year, a House committee stopped legislation that would have required minimum safety standards for day-care facilities and criminal background checks on employees. The reason: Mothers need to stay at home. "What can we do to keep mom at home?" said Rep. Tom Loertscher (R-Iona) in an article published in the Spokesman-Review. "There is no substitute, there is absolutely no substitute, for families taking care of children."

What can we say but—wow.
