The subject of Childrens Rights does not provoke much sentimentalism in this country, where, as somebody says, the present problem of the children is the painless extinction of their elders. I interviewed the man who washes my windows, the other morning, with the purpose of getting at the level of his mind in the matter. Dennis, I said, as he was polishing the glass, I am writing an article on the Rights of Children. What do you think about it? Dennis carried his forefinger to his head in search of an idea, for he is not accustomed to having his intelligence so violently assaulted, and after a moments puzzled thought he said, What do I think about it, mum? Why, I think wed ought to give em to em. But Lor, mum, if we dont, they take em, so whats the odds? And as he left the room I thought he looked pained that I should spin words and squander ink on such a topic.
