We have a giant sandbox in the backyard, and when all four of the grand kids get done playing in it, there isn't much to do other than just take them in the house and dip them all in the bathtub. Its just about as much fun as the sandbox. I've taken a lot of pictures of them in both places. Apparently that's not such a good idea.

I saw this story the other day about a couple in Arizona who took some vacation pictures of their daughters, aged 1 1/2, 4, and 5 years. Apparently some of the pictures were at bath time, and when they took the cameras memory stick to Wal-Mart to get the pictures developed, an employee called the police, who then called the Arizona Child Protective Services, who then seized the three girls for a month while the couple was investigated for child abuse and child pornography. Neither of the parents were charged.

It's what happens when we have a great big government, and a lot of government employees with not enough to do.

The family is suing Wal-Mart and the government.

Wal-Mart will probably settle.

The government will probably hire some more employees.

And I guess I'd better get rid of the picture of Hannah with the soap suds bunny ears.

Just in case.
