Finally, a tribute to some real American heroes: the men who stay home with their children.

“I sort of take things upon myself,” said Mr. Griffioen, whose family has added a son and moved to Detroit. “I don’t go to the store to buy my kids toys. I make them toys. I do woodworking, leatherworking. I learned all sorts of manly skills that I never would have had time to learn if I were sitting in an office 28 stories above San Francisco.”

Wait, what? He freaking makes toys for his kids? Builds things? Fine leather goods?


And I was proud of myself for running a silly blog and brewing some beer. I clearly need to step up my game.
