Regarding Kathleen Parker’s Jan. 9 op-ed column, “The trouble with Honey Boo Boo”:
Let’s not totally trash Honey Boo Boo’s family. Her family members are so nice to each other. They helped a pregnant teenager. Dad Mike Thompson tears up talking about how much he loves his daughter, as well as the three older girls who are not his daughters. Compare that with the fictional, aristocratic two older daughters in “Downton Abbey” who betray each other. Kindness counts.
