Guardian: Strawberry fields not forever

According to the Guardian, the Strawberry Fields children's home is closing:
A spokeswoman said the building was shutting because it was now preferable for children to be cared for by a foster family or in a small group home, rather than within large residential institutions.

It's hard to argue with that logic; I agree with the principle of placing children in the least restrictive environment.

Still, it's a bit hard to take. I dunno about you, but when I was a kid, I thought Sgt. Pepper's was a children's album, same as Peter, Paul and Mommy.

So what can you say? Thanks for the memories, for all the good work, and God bless the children.
