If you have the flu (and it sounds like you do) it will take at least 1 - 2 weeks to feel like your old self. Really bad one week and just tired and weak the second. I know that isn't good news. However, do exactly as the doctor says and get as much rest as possible. Prove that my answer is wrong, and that you are A OK in record time!!!! :-)

Are you saying that George W. Bush didn't call the act the "cornerstone" of his administration. Whoever, whatever it was bipartisan bill. To just say that liberals did it, simply is not correct. There were "conservatives" who were patting themselves on the back when it became law. They can't walk away from it now and the public should not help them walk away from their actions.

OK, I can see where the confusion can come in the bill was co-authored by John Boehner, George Miller, Judd Gregg and Ted Kennedy. However, Bush signed the bill on January 8, 2002 after it passed both houses.

No child left behind created by Ted Kennedy? In January 2001 George W. Bush, in a speech, pushed for no child left behind calling it the "cornerstone of my administration." The NCLB Act was passed in 2001.

I wonder about that Mark Fumusa entry. What does their drilling a new well (I thought they had plenty of water) and storage capacity have to do with PSWID?

We have gone on about abortion several times and everyone should know that I do not condone it. However, I believe that those people who stand outside abortion clinics shouting, etc. are accomplishing nothing. Instead, I believe that they should be advertising assistance to those in an "unwanted pregnancy. In other words, the demonstrators should be willing to offer financial assistance (giving birth to a baby costs $$$$), discuss adoption possibilities, and if the child is kept offer ongoing assistance to the adult through at least the first year of the baby's life. This assistance should include "development of parenting skills." If the mother is a teen, the teen should be offered assistance in finishing high school. In fact finishing high school should be made a requirement. Perhaps some type of "pay back" could also be worked into the deal.

Of course what I am talking about costs $$$$$ and where is that going to come from? Also, there are probably those who believe that "she got herself into that predicament, and she can get herself out."

The problem of abortion and child abuse is big, it will not be solved with talk. One only need to look at newspapers to learn about the prevalence of child abuse.

Now that I have ranted -- people of a certain age should be very careful about liquid consumption -- or at least make sure they are close to a bathroom, if they do sip more than little. :-)

How did this string get to be a discussion of abortion?

You are ignoring the horritic death of a 5 year old child. I believe her life is just as dear as that of a fetus.

The problem of adults abusing children is just as big problem as those presented by Planned Parenthood.
