On Baby Worship

Jim’s post on “Baby Worship” brings to mind a quote I read from Chuck Swindoll’s Growing Deep in the Christian Life:

“Every baby starts life as a little savage. He wants what he wants when he wants it. His bottle, his mother’s attention, his playmate’s toy, his uncle’s watch. Deny these and he seethes with rage and aggressiveness which would be murderous were he not so helpless.”

-Minnesota Crime Commission

What does it all mean? It means that Maggie Simpson really did premeditate shooting Mr. Burns with that gun.
