From a reader:
Thank you! Even though I’m not a big fan, I do watch the show, and the treatment of their child has been striking. And believe me, I in no way expect realism from a sitcom. But this is ridiculous. From what I’ve seen, there’s no recognition they even HAVE a child–she’s going off to Paris, boo-hoo, we’ll miss you. Where’s the kid? What’s going to happen to it? (Him? Her? I don’t even remember.) It’s a subject worthy of further exploration, I’d say….at the risk of getting hooted at like Dan Quayle.
