Have you shopped for Father's Day cards lately? I have, and frankly, I'm appalled. In many of the greeting cards available today, dads are portrayed as lazy, disengaged, un-involved, beer-guzzling, flatulent couch potatoes.
The Father's Day offerings in most greeting card stores reveal a painful dearth of imagination and shockingly old-school views of men. It borders on being physically painful for me to cruise the racks in search of a card I might actually be able to give to my husband, the other father of my child.
