The Q at Parkside

(for those for whom the Parkside Q is their hometrain)

News and Nonsense from the Brooklyn neighborhood of Lefferts and environs, or more specifically a neighborhood once known as Melrose Park. Sometimes called Lefferts Gardens. Or Prospect-Lefferts Gardens. Or PLG. Or North Flatbush. Or Caledonia (west of Ocean). Or West Pigtown. Across From Park Slope. Under Crown Heights. Near Drummer's Grove. The Side of the Park With the McDonalds. Jackie Robinson Town. Home of Lefferts Manor. West Wingate. Near Kings County Hospital. Or if you're coming from the airport in taxi, maybe just Flatbush is best.

Brooklyn Assemblywoman Charged in Assault of Her 12-Year-Old Son

Brooklyn Assemblywoman Charged in Assault of Her 12-Year-Old Son: Sources: Diana Richardson

Heartbreaking. On so many levels. Mother and child are inseparable. I'm certain the family will work through it. But this is tough.

Best of luck to Diana and son. May love and patience prevail.

No need to resign, and no need to explain herself. As a fellow adult and parent, I don't expect anyone to explain how they do/don't parent. Tomorrow she will be on the local ballot, running unopposed I believe.

Striking another human being is wrong. It doesn't matter if you're a parent or President. While we may not know the details about this incident, it is perfectly reasonable to say that anyone who is hitting their children or anyone else is in need of reform.

Saw this yesterday "fabricated"...

If her name were "Donald Trump" I'm sure Q and its readers would be equally understanding.
