Hey PEOPLE Magazine, leave that nice Duggar woman alone. I think she's a pretty good Mama.

I really don't much care for celebrity types.

Who really cares about what Carrie Underwood wore to the Superbowl, or who Jennifer Aniston is dating this week?

It's boring.

But I happened to notice on the cover of People Magazine this week a picture of Michelle & Jim Bob Duggar, parents of 19.

Little Josie, the youngest, was just born several months prematurely, and People was bashing them a bit for their decision to keep on having babies.


Well, People Magazine, let's see.

Can they afford these kids?  Seems as though they can.  Their 7,000 square foot house is paid off, they have no debt, and Jim Bob does some sort of commercial real estate mumbo jumbo in his spare time to pay for their weekly trips to Sam's Club.  Their clothes come from Goodwill, and they eat Tater Tot Casserole, for goodness sake.

Do they love these kids?  Well, it sure appears that way.  Michelle Duggar comes across as a bit of a saint, and her patience seems to never run out.  They do fun things together as a family, and truly seem to care about one another.

When you add it all up, these kids seem to have it better than about 98% of the kids in America right now.  So People Magazine, go back to covering Michael Jackson's doctor, and leave these nice folks alone to do what they seem to do best, make babies and Tater Tot Casserole.
