Pulling the plug: ICU 'culture' key to life or death decision
Tue May 21, 2013
I worked in ICU for over a decade. Took care of patience with no advance directives and no family. It had to go to a judge to allow a person to die. I have only seen docs try and try when there was no meaningful recovery to be had. Recently, in code situations, the doctor will say that they want to …
Gitmo detainees' lawyer describes 'brutal' force-feeding of hunger strikers
Sun May 5, 2013
Totally agree! If they were actual medical patients, the feeding tube would stay in for awhile instead of having to be inserted each time. They're also really playing up the drama in the description. I've put a TON of these tubes in people, and it's not that bad. It doesn't go "in the back of the sk …
Guns made for kids: How young is too young to shoot?
Fri May 3, 2013
It's both. Many years ago, when men went away from their homes in search of work, young men (older than 5, though!) were often instructed by their fathers to 'use the gun to protect the home'. That was then, this is now. If there wasn't a 'gun culture', no parent would even *think* of putting a gun …
10-year-old boy among victims as more than 20 shot on one Chicago day
Thu May 2, 2013
Two things need to be done. First, all gang members (yes, the police know who they are) need a tattoo on their forehead which states this so there aren't any mistakes. Second, all gang members need to go to gun safety classes and the shooting range-frequently. Then, just turn them loose! Let them al …
Young guns: Philadelphia youths wanted in stick-ups
Thu Apr 25, 2013
I totally agree. Where are the parents?!?!? THIS is what happens when you can no longer beat your kids. Some kids need a good belt to their backside often to keep from turning into this!!
Missed email, multiple spellings: How Tsarnaev's travel got lost in the system
Thu Apr 25, 2013
They need to hire the people from collection agencies!!! Those SOB's can track you anywhere... even if you change your name! They are relentless, and use some pretty unethical tactics to find people. I think they could do a better job at tracking people and questioning the HELL out of them!!
Twinkies (the real ones) back on store shelves in July
Thu Apr 25, 2013
I feel the same way! I ONLY eat Hostess brand snack cakes, so I have been without any for MONTHS! I was just seriously considering shelling out big bucks to get my Twinkie fix. Now I'll just hold out and wait for them to hit the shelves!
What did the FBI and CIA know about bombing suspects, and when?
Wed Apr 24, 2013
It 'seems' like common sense that if a country that we have tense ties with says "Hey, I think this guy is being radicalized over here", then the FBI dropped the ball! They could have been watching his internet activity. They could have done a more extensive interview of his friends, things he'd sai …
Parents outraged that Mass. middle-schoolers were denied lunch
Thu Apr 4, 2013
"Cry babies"??? Yes, they ARE children! Children who are HUNGRY!! I don't feel the cheese sandwich and milk is adequate, either! The food is right there. Obviously, there is enough to feed them. So FEED THEM!! We're supposed to be a 'world leader' and 'superpower'.... yet we're going to let children …
Ohio woman who delivered 'miracle' baby sues over allegedly botched abortion
Tue Apr 2, 2013
Just WHAT medical expenses if she was on medicaid?? What 'loss of wages' if she was on welfare? Sounds like this irresponsible young woman was looking for a payday and found it. I hope the jury sees through this nonsense. If the pregnancy was SO life threatening, then she should have had surgery to …
Questions & Answers
Military mom 'proud' of breast-feeding in uniform, despite criticism
No, it's inappropriate.
Think about how other countries (countries we're at war with) view this!! They'll see a weak military that has to recruit breastfeeding mothers! It's NOT a message that we want to send out when dealing with terrorists. The military needs to make a change in policy that absolutely forbids not only br …
