The numbers keep increasing.
How can this continue to happen?

It’s a good site.
The Weather Channel (which I have watched since shortly after it’s inception in 1982, but have almost completely stopped watching because of their radical, political agendas) has really gone off the rails this time. Saturday morning, I caught part of a segment where they were trying to explain how otherwise responsible grownups can leave their babies/children in a hot car and how some parents who have done so, are blaming the auto manufacturers for not solving the problem.
I’m typically an understanding and sensitive guy, especially after all my years in funeral service and fire/EMS. But, what has happened to personal responsibility?
Some kids got into vehicles on their own and some were left behind by parents/caretakers. For those left hehind to broil to death, I wonder if those charged with caring for them forgot and left their smartphone in the vehicle also?
Maybe I’m over reacting a bit, but I’m perplexed.
Lots of very smart people out in the blogosphere. What am I missing?
Can anyone explain this?
