When we ride, we paradoxically indulge and confront our own prejudices, flaws and superiority complexes when observing the parenting styles of people we don't know.
Yo, so Nadine, aka MissTA has been writing for us for awhile now, and for some crazy reason (i.e. I'm a lazy assed fuckup), I never managed to put up her intro.
If you know anything about anything, then you're already well aware of the fact that she totally rocks. In fact, she's the only other humanoid currently writing for FIPS who has NEVER received any negative comments....EVER (trust me, this is a major feat to behold....and no one better fuck it up now by leaving some "you suck, bizzatch!" nastiness down below).

Stay tuned for way more of her subway shenanigans.

BUT, she wrote this article recently for the Spectator in the UK, telling her side of the "I never set out to ruin this person's life...I'm the victim here story" (or whatever), and she drops this little tasty nugget about Park Slope:
