Hands-Free Parenting

The daily telegraph lowers the bar for fathers everywhere:

When his youngest son Lucas was born, Mick Jagger was hardly the world's most doting dad. The Rolling Stone disputed the child, born to Brazilian model Luciana Morad following a backstage fling, was his and demanded DNA tests to establish the truth. Five years on, however, a close bond has clearly developed between father and son. Sir Mick, 62, and his girlfriend L'Wren Scott took Lucas out for a meal in London at Christmas. The pair have also been spotted in Hyde Park, where the Stones played a free concert in 1969. On their latest outing, Jagger helped Lucas on to a slide and, despite talking on his mobile phone, applauded as he emerged safely.
A Christmas dinner, a trip to the park, and paying partial attention at the playground. That is some pretty impressive parenting. Of course, Mick Jagger might be a wonderful father. What I can't figure out is why anyone bothered to write this story in the first place. I think it they just wanted to show a picture of the child's mother.
