Scary Headline of the Day

"Preteen daters more likely to take up smoking: study"

Just as I'm getting my head around the headline that there are preteen daters, it hits me with the information that they're likely to end up smoking.

The study says that girls who started dating early--by eleven or twelve--were nine times more likely than their peers to begin smoking by thirteen years old.

I'd like to know where their parents are: smoking crack and naked wrestling with gators?!
