We just celebrated 
MOTHERS DAY. Perhaps it is time to deal with
several requests for ideas concerned with
FATHER  PATTERN and PATERNITY.

To please our readers I always try to avoid being
PATERNALISTIC -- I am aware that such 
PATTERN would alienate aliens and some modern 
Social Workers who often are "liberated ladies"
may be prone to devalue the role of fathers and paternity 
as if
PATERNITY has nothing to do with
PATTERN or mold or UTERUS or 
MATRIX and forget that
MATERNITY and 
PATERNITY are key to LIFE which is 
PATTERNED by both
PARENTS who must engage in
PARENTING . 
These ideas underscore 
PAIR and 
PAIRING or 
COUPLE and
COUPLING which is of great interest 
even to political parties and Presidents who
deprecate family "planning" and refuse funds for 
ANTICONCEPTIVES to apparently honor accords with 
PADRES from the Vatican who reject the
CONCEPT that exploding human populations
threaten the biologic stability of the planet and
limit their preaching to concerns about teens  
PAIRING and seem to ignore that in fact unwanted
CONCEPTIONS end in induced abortions or 
enGENder new 
GENerations of BABIES often to be cared for by  
"single" or young 
PARENTS which often can not provide the nurturing 
needed to transcend the stages of 
ANIMATED childhood and evolve from a pure 
ANIMAL condition into a membership in a 
SOCIETY of social creatures.
