Parents who let kids walk home alone found responsible for 'unsubstantiated' child neglect
Mon Mar 2, 2015
Starting at 6, I always walked to and from school. My daughter started doing that later, but only because it was farther away for her and it would've taken too long when her legs were shorter. I and my friends always played all over the neighborhood and beyond, and it always made us laugh when someo …
Disneyland Measles Outbreak: Why One Mom Recommends Vaccination
Sun Jan 25, 2015
In reply to:Speak The Truth-10398187 #3.1 "American citizen women"? That's dumb. It's much harder to get a man to go in and get his immunizations than it is to get a woman to do it.
Mom of teen not vaccinated for measles fires back at critics
Wed Jan 21, 2015
In reply to:DMP1955 #2.3 Actually, we don't know what her doctors said. We only know what the mom thinks the doctor said when she was a baby. She really should get the vaccine, and the nurse or physician administering it should be ready for a histamine reaction. It probably won't occur, but it might …
'Fix Society': Transgender Teen Leelah Alcorn Posted Plea Before Suicide
Wed Dec 31, 2014
My heart hurts so badly for this girl! It has to be ridiculously painful to be constantly told, verbally and nonverbally, that you aren't who you know you are. I only get that now and then, on holidays during family visits. And in my case, it's only ideology, not biology. I wish she'd been born to m …
Boy, 2, Accidentally Shoots and Kills Mom at Idaho Walmart
Tue Dec 30, 2014
Had she not been as white as the driven snow, she'd be demonized, not mourned in the press.
'Perhaps I Can Do Food': How One Woman Makes a Difference Against Ebola
Sun Dec 21, 2014
Inspiring. But I'm not nearly as creative as she is, so since she inspired me to do some good in the world today, I guess I'll just donate to her! Hey, we can't ALL have the original ideas.
Obama: 'No Black Male My Age' Hasn't Been Mistaken for a Valet
Wed Dec 17, 2014
This happens more than most white people think, so I suppose I can see why some people are skeptical. If you haven't done it, you figure it never gets done to anyone else. But it happened to my date once in college. He just blithely tossed the keys back and asked if he looked like a valet. He was we …
Childhood Illness Fells Mighty Hockey Players
Mon Dec 8, 2014
I actually HAD the mumps in '72, and it was no fun at all. Anyone who doesn't get their kids vaccinated is ignorant. I feel sorry for anyone who can't get the vaccine because of an allergy to one of its components, because thanks to silly people who believe crazy talk, they're much more likely to su …
Wal-Mart Changes 'I Can't Breathe' Ad After Complaints
Thu Dec 4, 2014
What most posters don't seem to understand is that everyone, including those who want the ad pulled, agree that it's cute and harmless by itself. But the timing on that is really poor, and Walmart is simply responding to customer feedback by pulling the ad. Free speech is working the way it should i …

Wed Nov 26, 2014
