James Harris and Kevin Fisher: Happy Fathers' Day!

Harris made an unpopular point and he won't be on "Oprah" in the future. Ever. See, in Oprah's world, only women are good. Men--well-- not so good. (With a slightly different focus, Jessie Lee Peterson will also be Banned From Oprah.)

Unless you believe the statistics which Kevin supplies:

• Over 60% of youth suicides are from fatherless homes. [Census Bureau]
• Over 80% of all children that exhibit behavioral disorders come from fatherless homes. [Center for Disease Control]
• Over 70% of adolescent murders come from fatherless homes. [William J. Bennett, The Index of Leading Cultural Indicators, p. 61]
• Over 70% of all high school dropouts come from fatherless homes. [National Principals Association Report on the State of High Schools]
• 70% of long-term prison inmates come from fatherless homes. [William J. Bennett, The Index of Leading Cultural Indicators, p. 61]
• Over 80% of all youths sitting in prisons grew up in a fatherless home. [Fulton County Georgia Jail Populations and Texas Dept. of Corrections]

And that's just the start of Kevin's long paean to fathers...
