Father knows best

Father knows best

And another thing — get off my lawn: Child psychologist John Rosemond opines that Parents These Days should revert to the parenting methods of the 1950s, and stop worrying about damaging children's self-esteem.

Sure — and while we're at it, we might as well bring back some other features of 1950s childhood: highly flammable pajamas, lead-based paint, swats in the principal office, and standing on the back seat on car trips.

Just put butter on it: While other scientists work on stuff like new cancer cures, researchers at the University of Wisconsin-Madison are devoted to a culinary quest: creating better-tasting vegetables.

They'll know they've achieved a breakthrough when they can make Brussels sprouts taste like french fries.

Don't know much about history: On this day in 1914, the last surviving passenger pigeon, named Martha, died at the Cincinnati Zoo.

Martha was given a 21-shotgun salute, fired by an honor guard of barefoot men and boys from southern Ohio.
