unprotected children

Sasha pointed me to this video on the BBC which is about Lenore Skenazy, who apparently let her child use the subway, which it seems in the states is so vile that children must be protected from it. It appears to have started with this op-ed in the New York Sun, and gone from there. It reminds me in some ways of the story of Anette Sorensen, the Dane who left her baby outside a restaurant (also in New York) and was arrested.

sasha commented:
And, apparently, she has started a movement.  Which just reminds me of Arlo Guthrie's 1997 re-release of Alice's Restaurant (The Massacree Revisited): "And so you can imagine like fifty people, maybe fifty people a day walking in singin some Alice's Restaurant and walking out.  And friends they may think it's a movement.  And most of 'em would be too young to know what a movement was."
