On The True Meaning of Christmas!

Did not mean to imply anything particular about your situation. I maintain my point at a generic level, and agree that guilt should not be part of the equation for the mother either way.

On The True Meaning of Christmas!

I wish we would stop talking about women being "unable" to breastfeed like women are "unable" to give birth without routine medical intervention anymore.

I mean, what do I know, maybe some women actually don't produce milk or something, but women are often told their milk might not be "strong enough," etc. And with the first setback, someone's there to say, "some women just can't breastfeed," instead of, "here's how you might deal with this obstacle."

But no guilt meant for women who choose not to. Whatever!

On Nine Fine Wikipedia Entries, on the Occasion of Its Ninth Birthday

Every time I use Scrubbing Bubbles, I envision them dancing animatedly across my tub. That is the total explanation for my brand loyalty to that particular product.

On The New Emotions

On Poll: "Blacks Not Particularly Optimistic About Future"

Also, the 30 Rock episode where the black guy's last name was Black so everyone called him Black.

On Poll: "Blacks Not Particularly Optimistic About Future"

This was actually a Pew poll. Also, on NPR the reporter asked to clarify whether those who did not think things were better thought things were worse or the same. The majority saw no change; some thought things were worse. I got a master's in being persnickety.

But yeah, the whole thing still feels like a Stuff White People Like item.

On Dave Eggers: Still Not The Real Enemy!

Oh my god, does he really think the AP is free content? NOT HELPFUL.

And I don't think a single one of our local newspaper readers is making any sort of offering to watchdog journalism. They just want obits and grocery store sale inserts.
