More good news: US NOT worst for child welfare

We're just the second worst.

The U.K. and the U.S. are the worst places for children's quality of life and the Netherlands and Sweden are the best, according to a report on 21 industrialized countries by the United Nations Children's Fund.


The U.S. ranks last in health and safety, with the highest rates of relative child poverty and teenage obesity, according to the report. Only 60 percent of U.S. children live with both parents, compared with 90 percent in Greece, the report said.

Shameful doesn't begin to express how outrageous this is.

And, by the way, if you read some news accounts, you'd never even know where the US ranked.
