...30 states required children to provide support for indigent parents....

Had never heard of this before, so did some quick looking. Fortunately, Idaho did away with this law 1-2 years ago. For any of you with parent issues, you might want to check the statutes of the state in which your parents reside and, if necessary, talk with a lawyer and start building the case for why you should have no financial liability for your parents--just in case someone decides to start enforcing these laws rigorously.
