Re: Star Trek: Destiny Book 1: Gods of Night - (SPOILERS)
With all the statistics there are that show children being raised in single parent households contribute to more crimes than any other demographic I cannot see how a Star Trek author can in all good conscience support such a position and say it's OK.
Ok, as a child of a (mostly) single-parent household, I find that statement a little insulting. I have never commited and crime, and I have a sister who has also never commited a crime (as far as I know) and who is now working as a doctor. So I don't see exactly what bad thing you think the authors are supporting.
They say a little knowledge is a dangerous thing, but it is not one half so bad as a lot of ignorance. - Terry Pratchett, Equal Rites
