Now that he's six, Russell has some very important questions:

  1. If he has to wear hand-me-downs, shoulden't bigger kids wear hand-me-ups?
  2. If he can't say bad words, can he make up his own words when he's angry?
  3. If he has to get a report card, isn't it about time his parents got one to?
