Not Quite Hitting the Mark

In an interview with the Toronto Globe and Mail about his collection of essays about dadding, Manhood for Amateurs, Michael Chabon touches on the low standards by which most fathering behavior is judged in addition to his own belief that a father fails every day (although he seems to judge that failure as missing a bar set much higher than is common). However, it should be mentioned that fathers do have help in the failure from their kids. A not unusual type of help — if still, fortunately, rather uncommon — a teen took his dad's Porsche for a joyride and joyrid it (again, fortunately as nobody was hurt) over a 70-foot drop.
