Today’s read is from Naomi Schaefer Riley, a senior fellow at the Independent Women’s Forum. Here’s an excerpt, followed by a link to her entire article.

American parents have spent decades trying to minimize risks for children, arming them with everything from bicycle helmets to tracking devices.

If they can’t bring themselves to explain that opening schools poses only minimal risks to kids, they should at least concede that keeping them closed presents plenty of dangers of its own.
