Is Being a Single Mother a Good Thing?

I was recently called to task for saying that one of the biggest problems facing America is single parent households. The person thought I was attacking single parents. Of course not. I wish them well, but the situation is not ideal. And if it can be avoided should be avoided.

I recently ran across this Chris Rock quote:
In Mr. Rock's HBO special, a performance taped at the Apollo Theater, he maintains his reputation for outrageous cutting-edge comedy by taking Dan Quayle's side of the Murphy Brown debate. ''A bunch of girls say you don't need no man to help you raise no child,'' he says, and promptly dismisses them.

''Yeah, you can do it without a man,'' he says. ''You could drive a car with your feet if you want to. That don't make it a good [expletive] idea.'' Mr. Rock excoriates deadbeat dads and laments the lessened importance of the traditional father.
