• The proprietors of McDain’s Restaurant in Monroeville, Pennsylvania have had all they can stands and they can’t stands no more, as far as screaming babies and ill-mannered toddlers are concerned. Beginning this Saturday, no child under the age of six will be allowed to eat at the restaurant. Owner Mike Vuick says a combination of poorly-behaved children and parents unwilling to ensure good behavior while dining are at the crux of the decision. This might be the best idea ever. And I have kids. But it is true: too many parents just let their kids run wild while at a restaurant, allowing behavior (I hope) they would never tolerate in their own home and at their own dinner table. The money quote from Vuick: “You know, their child — maybe as it should be — is the center of their universe,” he told WTAE. “But they don’t realize it’s not the center of the universe.” Amen, brother.
