I was talking to someone the other day about the wisdom of bringing children into this world given the state of affairs here on earth. One of the lessons from the movie Midnight in Paris ,that I reviewed last week, is that every generation believes they have somehow missed the “Golden Age” of human history.

Following this conversation I ran across a tongue in cheek article- at least I think it is tongue in cheek but it is from San Fransisco so who really knows, and it was titled Five Reasons It’s Better to Have a Dog Than a Kid. The author Erin Sherbert writing for SF Weekly argues it is better to get a dog rather than have a kid because:

1. You don’t have to pay for college;

2. You won’t have to spend every meal cutting crusts off sandwiches;

3. Dogs will protect you from crazy people;

4. Kids will love you as long as you buy them crap;

5. You don’t have to teach dogs how to catch a ball.

Not sure I agree with Erin but it there is no way to really argue with these points.
