Cop "delivers" son?

As here:

ROCKFORD, Ill. — A police officer in Rockford has delivered his son in a hotel parking lot in the northern Illinois city.

Not on your tintypeThe mother did the delivering, he did the receiving. I know, having done same for loving mother of our second in an Oak Park bedroom 45 years ago the 22nd of this month.

We called her Kathryn after Kathryn O'Connell Bowman, my mother, who was still living at the time. The first Kathryn became Kate, ours became Katie.

That said, nice job, officer. You the best.
