    It’s like a baby ending up with brain damage because a nurse held a woman’s legs together in order for the doctor to get there and deliver the baby…. instead of just…. catching the baby. It really does make you go WTF???? Yes, he did deserve so much better.

    That is exactly what was going through my mind. That little girl has more sense of grace in her little finger than her mama has learned her whole adult life.

    They are being forced into waking up because so much crap is finally hitting their own windshields. Until it hit them at home, apathy was the name of the game. This whole thing is not going to end well.

    I can guarantee that if someone didn’t have an ID but needed one to cash a check they had received, they would go through he!! and high water to get one.

    Especially if you are already listening to something else. The dueling voices is really annoying…. and you have to keep finding what is playing and stopping it – which lasts about as long as it takes for you to go back to what you were doing originally. PLEASE get rid of them.

    Count me in! I dont have much, but will gladly give what i can.

    I have thought the same thing as well. Standards and principals dropping lower everywhere. Apparently no one stands strong. Just going on record … While i undersdtand your right to free speech, it would be nice to have a web site that has some vestige of interest in keeping it clean.

    As a former 911 police dispatcher (who finally left the job because i could no longer deal with the amount of corruption within the dept.)… 3 1/2 minutes is a LONG time to wait before dispatching an officer to the scene. It should have been seconds. And while 3 1/2 minutes doesnt seem like a long time… It didnt mention how long it took them to actually get there. We were instructed to dispatch officers while the caller was on the line and then keep the line open until contact was made. Such shoddy dispatching. How it is even possible to have voice mail on what was in our little dept., a dedicated line… A whole separate system, is beyond me.

    Typical. Investigate something that was investigated whrn it happened. What they need to find out is why he was not classified as a deserter at the time. I personally believe they saw he could be of use later… For exactly what he was used for. It wouldnt even surprise me if he was part of planning for the future. The guy is scum. And the ones “investigating” probably already have therir script in hand.

    I would imagine that it comes from the meconium in the amniotic fluid (and had been in there a good while) that turns the pups that greenish shade. It would follow that any fluid containing that material aspirated would cause problems to develop a day or two after birth. Since each pup has it’s own bag of waters, it would only cause problems for the pups with the meconium in the water.

    While a little over the top, just out of curiosity, why…. here so close to mother’s day… can moms not have a moment in the sun? Why can we not be given some applause without the writer adding dads? We know it is always best to have two parents, because that is the way God planned it, but as the mother of four home birthed, home schooled children I know that my work started before anyone awoke and continued well after everyone was asleep. It really is ok to give kudos to moms who ARE working hard every day. Dads who are involved on parenting often don’t get the credit they deserve, but crabbing because moms who do work hard every day actually are getting attention is kind of petty…. like “look at me! Look at me! Look at me!”

    Is it just me that sees it, or does Landrieu look like Hillary of days gone by? Scary!

    Evasion and cover-up is just part of their culture. That part of the world does not understand the concept of operating in an open and honest way. Of course, neither does America any longer. They really do not think anything of changing their story to fit the immediate need. While the family is upset, and who can blame them, I think they knew they would not get the truth. I lived in that part of the world for 18 years, and it is hard to explain.

    I guess you guys are part of the crowd that blames the woman for being raped. Taking pictures of woman in public, regardless of how she is dressed is one thing – she is in public and apparently unconcerned. But to place your camera/phone under someone’s skirt in order to take a picture…. that jumps into a whole different territory. That is an act he, and only he should own. Why blame her for what he did? Are you going back to the old “boys will be boys” excuse? Are men so out of control that you just can’t stop your hand from grabbing your…….camera, and putting it where it shouldn’t be? Up-skirting is perverted. Period.
    I am an extremely conservative female who at the age of 19 had her car break down on my way home from work. I was abducted while walking to a gas station, brutally beaten, raped, and tossed out on to the road. When I came to, crawled to get help, and was taken to the police – I was told by them that I never should have been out walking on the side of the road at night – and I certainly should have never been wearing a red dress (gasp) and heels – just too tempting for men. I was 5 foot tall and weighed 95 lbs. I worked as the hostess at an extremely nice restaurant. I was dressed very appropriately… nothing provocative. You explain to me how I was responsible what happened. While those women may not have dressed to your requirements – the lawyer said it well, “everyone should have the expectation of privacy beneath their own clo

    Unfortunately, ultra sounds do not always reveal the whole picture, and can be very difficult to read. As a midwife I have had clients who were told by the ultra sound tech that they were having a boy but delivered a girl, etc. Babies who are routinely induced early because the doctor has decided the baby is too big…. end up weighing 5 or 6 labs…. or less, and clearly not ready to be born. Pregnancy… the incredible process that makes up pregnancy and the creation of life will forever remain a mystery. We are human and as sophisticated as all the machines are, we mess up. It is difficult for those who only see the pathology of things to do the one thing that is best for mom and babe…. wait and trust.

    Bless your heart. Been there and understand. Sending up prayers that your are soon reunited. I love my own puppers. Any time one of them has something happen to them it breaks my heart.

    Exactly. I am willing to be that those objecting to her feeding her baby when hungry would be the first to whine and complain because the baby got hungry and refused the bottle and was crying. My babies got harder to console the longer they were allowed to cry, and the idea of getting hungry enough to take a bottle is ludicrous. Most people who have never experienced breast vs bottle don’t understand that breastfeed babies really do refuse a bottle. Supplementing with a bottle if the baby cooperates diminishes milk supply. The breast is also more than a source of food, it is also comfort. Better a happy baby than a screaming baby. Most women are very careful. They don’t “whip them out”. Or “flop them out”.

    Sure thing…. and you would be ok with taking your meal to the bathroom to eat? Really hygienic, and a dumb comment.

    So, attempting to feed a baby a bottle it will NOT take or keep it covered up and causing problems….. thus resulting in a truly upset and screaming infant is a better alternative to just feeding the baby and being done with it? I flew often with infants… all four of my children at one time or another, and fed them without a bottle and without a cover, and never had a moments problem from anyone around me. Sometimes they knew what I was doing, sometimes they had no idea. If you have never dealt with a hungry infant who absolutely refuses a bottle, you really have no concept of what it is like. It is our own concept of boobs that makes it a problem. Women who breastfeed in public don’t disrobe. They don’t take off their top. I could put my baby to the breast sitting on a bench in the mall, and have someone stop to look at the baby and suddenly realize I was feeding him/her. She is feeding her baby. It isn’t sexual or offensive and if that is how you see it, you really need to get a grip on reality.
