Someone has too much time on his hands...

There's a professor at the University of Alberta who definitely has too much time on his hands.
He is Andrew Harrell. His discipline? The social sciences. His latest findings? That ugly people make bad parents.
“Unattractive parents are less likely than attractive parents to supervise their children closely,” said Harrell.
He’s the same social scientist who took a fair bit of heat last year when he presented evidence suggesting parents pay more attention to attractive children.
This guy needs to have something to do.
Does he have any children? His listing on the U of A web site doesn't say.
Perhaps he should pay more attention to his own kids, if he has 'em.
