Help A Hook Out, Will Ya?

“Mothers get plenty of credit. Dads? Not so much. Of course, that may have something to do with the fact that most dads are of the deadbeat variety.

There are millions of great dads out there, of course. But unfortunately, a select number of my brethren tend to cut bait and skedaddle when it comers to guiding another human being through life while providing for their every need.
