Deadbeat Dads

—- NPR's Steve Inskeep reports on an increase in the collection of delinquent payments from parents who owe child support. Despite that increase and a nationwide crackdown on deadbeat dads, the Government Acounting Office estimates that 24-million children still receive no payments at all. Some jurisdictions have begun taking away drivers' licenses and even the cars of those whose payments are in arrears.
