    Interesting discussion, especially as I've come here straight from FB. I read - and loved - Little House on the Prairie as a child. Of course I had no awareness of the explicit racism, which reflected the attitudes of the time, taking for granted ...

    Do you honestly believe our Mandy has a sparkly dress in her own wardrobe? Let alone make-up and hair crimpers. :-) By pure coincidence, I know who did the editing of the whole thing - my son's flatmate who was alerted by the mention of my name ...
