“Is this one of your crazy ideas?” my 10-year-old asked, as I hurried her to put on her shoes with promises of ice cream.
I had been sitting home watching CNN’s coverage of the Pope’s mass at Madison Square Garden when I snapped. Minutes later, after having bolted from my downtown Manhattan apartment with my daughter Savannah in tow, I was shoving us both into a packed #2 train and headed toward the 34th Street subway station.
Rarely is there a television show, much less a movie, that both my 9-year-old and I can agree on. Our preferences are wide and varied as they come, with she leaning more toward Disney Channel and me CNN. It was a complete surprise then to find that we both loved “McFarland, USA” and gave it a thumb’s up.
If you listen to my 8-year-old talk you’d think that CNN and Disney Channel were one and the same thing.
