"Adopted" son? Why not just refer to Mark Landon as Michael Landon's son? I don't see how adoption has any relevance in this news story and I can't understand why the media intentionally sets apart adopted children from biological children. When introducing children, people don't normally introduce them as "my biological child Jane" and "my adopted child John."

The same mentality that thinks we all must be divided into mere fractions of Americans.

Adding "adopted" helps to settle the confusion people are having due to the age difference between Mark and his father.

Michael Landon would be 72 if he were still alive and this guy was 60, so it's relevant in this situation to mention the adoption.

It is relevant so as not to impune the genes of Mr. Ingalls . When a single man dies alone in West Hollywood well, you know.
