friendly fire

Cluebat is pretty upset with this woman who divorced her husband while he was in Iraq and tried to get his parental rights dissolved on the grounds that he hasn't been doing his parental duties since he's been in Iraq.

I think it's a good idea to avoid jumping to conclusions here. Just because the guy is in Iraq doesn't prove that he's a fit father. Maybe the woman is a unbelievable bitch, but maybe she's just trying to protect herself and her daughter.

But obviously as a general rule, this kind of thing ought not to be allowed. And if it's at all possible, the judge ought to slap down her attorney for trying it.
