Arkansas Woman Gives Birth to 16th Child

Hey! My homestate made the news:


"We both just love children and we consider each a blessing from the Lord. I have asked Michelle if she wants more and she said yes, if the Lord wants to give us some she will accept them," he said.

The Discovery Health Channel filmed Johannah's birth and plans to air a show about the family of 18 next May.

The Learning Channel is doing another show about the family's construction project, a 7,000-square foot house that should be finished before Christmas. The home, which the family has been building for two years, will have nine bathrooms, dormitory-style bedrooms for the girls and boys, a commercial kitchen, four washing machines and four dryers.

This couple sho' nuff has the "go forth and multiply" thing down, maybe less of a grasp on "all things in moderation." So where do The Waltons end and a commune begin? 7th child? Number 9? Oh, and all 16 children have names that begin with the letter "J." Why does that bug me? None of this is any of my business really. I mean I'm not going to question their abilities as parents or crowd control experts or anything.
