Tabula Rasa?

We shall see. In any event, Happy New Year 2013! Your Bloviator can't think of a better way to usher in the year than with this precious item from the Daily Mail, which beatifully encapsulates the social mores of this brave new world (that has such people in it). Such a marvellous assemblage of the socialogical artifacts of our times!

  • Angela Bauer, 40, and partner Jennifer Schreiner, 34, placed ad in 2009
  • Donor William Marotta relinquished financial responsibility for child
  • Kansas state ordered Mr Marotta to pay after lesbian couple applied
    for welfare
Battle: Angela Bauer and former partner Jennifer Schreiner (right) are supporting their sperm donor William Marotta in his fight against paying child support for their daughter
