The Difference Between "Idiots With Kids" and Fathers

The result of a little rivalry quibble:
Police detained two suspects and were searching for another Saturday in the killing of a 25-year-old San Francisco Giants fan in the parking lot of Dodger Stadium, a shooting that authorities said had been triggered by a decades-old baseball rivalry.

Two families leaving the game during the eighth inning apparently traded words about the teams, police said. The dispute culminated when Mark Allen Antenorcruz, of Covina, was shot twice after a man he was arguing with pulled a .25-caliber semiautomatic handgun from his family's white SUV, police said.
Family "men". Ya gotta love 'em. Always setting a great example in front of their families.

Last night, less extremely, we waited in line at the taxi stop following "Bugs Bunny On Broadway" at the Hollywood Bowl. After waiting 45 minutes, ours came - but some "good dad" tried wedging himself and his snotnose kids between us and the cab, cursing his ass off and screaming that he phoned for that cab (the driver denied it). He almost took off my friend's leg by trying to slam the door when he lost the argument - all this in front of his kids.

You need to go through a rigorous weeklong screening process to adopt a cat today. But any gearhead with reproductive organs can have a kid. And not very many of them are fit to be fathers.
