LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Praise for well-adjusted families absent

Maybe I'm just too old-fashioned, but it seems to me it would be much more beneficial to society as a whole if we had the president and the mainstream media out praising and glorifying families that have a married mother and father.

Our president should also be praising those married individuals with children who are well-adjusted because their parents take an interest in them and spend time with them. President Obama ought to be doing this instead of calling professional athletes on the phone and congratulating them because they "came out" as homosexual. After all, the president seems to have a well-adjusted, traditional family himself.
