My piece about the Duggars is up at Big Journalism. Word of caution: The editor added a really salty quote from that unhinged critic of the family, Alan Bisbort of the Hartford Advocate. My apologies if you are offended (I am!) by the language, but it is what it is.
In the photo: My friends the Dortignacs (14 awesome children!*) with the Duggars. This photo was shot in southern California at Casa Dortignac while the gang was filming a segment for the Discovery Health Channel.
*plus two sons-in-law and one grandbaby
Update: The comments at Lucianne.com, about the Duggars, are worth a look. Boy (and girl), can this family start a conversation. I love it!
'Nother Update: I forgot to mention, in my piece, how 2 of the Duggar sons, who are volunteer firefighters, recently helped save a little girl's life. Go here.
