Countering the Jaundiced View.

I read today that the number of births to teenage mothers last year was the lowest since 1946. That must be causing some wailing and gnashing of teeth in the ranks of the blue rinse brigade, and I'm still searching for the joke that I know is in there somewhere.

And then I remembered that when I was a kid, it was common to refer to profligate women with the statement that 'She's no better than she ought to be.' I could never get my head around the logic of that one.
