The Declarer (Floyd McWilliams' Blog)

While driving home I saw a car -- an SUV, natch -- with the bumper sticker "Another Family For Peace." This has a nasty odor of evading rational discussion by invoking the sweet faces of angelic little ones. The now defunct Juan Gato used to deride policy proposals that tugged at parent's heartstrings as "It's For The Children(tm)"; I suppose that "Another Family For Peace" belongs to a related category, "It's By The Children."

Its theoretical demerits aside, "Another Family For Peace" is hardly an impressive slogan. "So, you're a santimonius twit, you married another sanctimonius twit, and you're busy producing sanctimonius twit offspring. What were the odds?"
