This is a typical, "blame-the-parents" diatribe.  On the other side, we
hear of kids who go wrong because they were disciplined.  Maybe Manson
went bad because his mother was a prostitute.  But then so was Louis
Armstrong's mother.  What happened?   Jacoby is playing a simplified
version of the blame game.  It's just much more complicated than he
portrays.
