Toward A New Definition of Family

Last night on NBC Nightly News, Brian Williams opened a report on Chinese toys by saying it was a story a lot of "families with children" have been watching. I think Williams is being demographically-correct and offering a wider definition of family, to include adult kids living with their parents, childless couples, gays, etc. Clearly we’ve moved a long way from "the average family" with 2.2 children. The Republican would-be presidents’ odd lives, Rudy Giuliani and Fred Thompson, should push this paradigm a little further along the road.
