Having published a couple of fact-based articles about the child support system that are also sympathetic to fathers, the editors at the New York Times just couldn’t resist. As they often do on other topics, they followed up with one of their forums called “Room for Debate,” in which they invite a few people with differing viewpoints to comment on the subject in question. That’s a fair approach, but all too often results in a “The Earth: Flat or Spherical?” type of debate. Of course we all value principled disagreement, but in some matters, some arguments just don’t have the heft that others do.
