Grandmother in Kentucky
Dear Kentucky: Every
generation has complained BORN LOSER
about the prior one, and each
generation has its own set
of external problems to deal
with. Most adult children do
the best they can to treat their
families well. But sometimes
even the most conscientious
and devoted parents can dis-
cover that their grown children
are not what they expected or
hoped for. Our sympathies.
