One wonders why the Geneva Convention strictly prohibits hollow pointers in war? Is it because the tissue damage is "unbearable" and inhumane? Why is it we still produced them in this Country? Why are they allowed here for civilian purchases?

Donna, based on your letter I must ask if you're desperately clinging to the idea or believe there is a divine creator! We must respect your believes and religious principles and there is no doubt this makes you and your church members wonderful and loving persons! You guys solved this task and this is honestly wonderful for you.

But if you believe that God created Eve from one of Adam's ribs, why is it that Eve is consistently depicted with a prominent navel. I've said this before and the response from one of the most devoted UB "posterers" was that such navel was perfect for a cute piercing...his words, not mines. What is your opinion, seriously?

This legislation is good for women in that it will, not only level the salary plain field but the psychological one as well. The 100 cents on the dollar women will get, such cents will be churned back into the economy which in turn will benefit all of us as citizens.

Sorry for "Big Money" as they would have to pay a bit more to the ladies...well, I'm not really sorry for them!

One wonders why conservatives are repeatedly defending Big if they expect a quid pro quo in the whole affair?

As a medical student 50 years ago I did an OB /GYN rotation... and asked a mother of 4 to describe labor pains for me. Imagine-she said- you passing a pineapple but in reverse...OUCH! That image, I thought, was very reveling for a student who never forgot about such definition for the rest of his life.

Please google "Colostrum" to get more information about the most versatile nutritional, immunological, anti-inflammatory and digestive agent a mother can offer to the baby through regular breast feedings.

Ah!...but yogourt is very good indeed as a meat tenderizer, though!

Namvet, Senate Republicans blocked a vote on Wednesday to open debate on the Paycheck Fairness Act, which would hold employers more accountable for wage discrimination against women. The Senate voted 53 to 44 to move forward on the bill, falling short of the 60 votes needed to overcome a Republican filibuster.

Maybe you could help by calling your Republican senator and ask her to give us her vote the next time this comes for a vote.

Yes, freedom will survive!

This measure sounds pretty reasonable to me. Please let's join Cecile in supporting I-594!

Richard, what's the solution? Put the Republicans in charge? OK, tell me about your ideas, but please be nice to our poor, disenfranchised, hungry, unhealthy and uneducated fellow Americans. Please do it without insulting them, after all you're supposed to be a compassionate conservative son of a gun! Are you from the Burg town? There you go, you're one of a kind, my friend!

I grew up as a catholic in Puerto Rico, a catholic enclave. I also lived in catholic Spain for 6 years, married an Irish lady from another devoted catholic country. I saw the church covering up for pedophiles right and left. After more than 65 years as a catholic I can tell that some in the catholic church clerics were not the only ones with pedophiles on their ranks, with plenty of blame on other religions to go around...and I can tell that equating pedophilia with homosexuality is plain ignorance.

We are parents of a gay daughter and we have many gay friends . For Mr. Miller to hide behind his "christianity" to insult my family and my friends is highly insulting. I consider his insults and act of bigotry and plain ignorance.

If he believes that by highjacking christianity, after what he just said about gays he is going to to be given a pass in heaven, he needs to repent and wash his mouth with holy water.

Mr. Miller, you really don't know if Jesus was gay or not...after all he was always hanging out with 12 other guys! He was intelligent, compassionate, fair, forgiving, loving, nonjudgmental, human...and wore long, beautiful hair!
