Over at my blog, I've posted an article on what's at stake in the John Edwards "love child" controversy. With an aide to the former senator, vice-presidential nominee, and presidential candidate set to reveal that Edwards is the father of his ex-mistress' baby, news reports indicate that Edwards may be mulling acknowledging the child as his own. I think this sad story is indicative of a larger tearing, not just in our cultural fabric, but in the cosmic fabric. I'd be interested to know what you think.
