    Answering her doorbell just after 10 p.m. Friday, Mary Jo Cooney looked through her peephole in San Francisco's Mission Terrace neighborhood and saw nothing. She didn't realize her late-night visitor was too short to see. It was 5-year-old Oscar Limon, spattered with his parents' blood and clutching a Nintendo video game, trying to find someone to help him and his younger sister. After Oscar rang a second doorbell on Badger Street, neighbors made a terrible discovery. In an extended-cab pickup truck parked around the corner on Still Street, the boy's father and mother had been shot dead.

    On one side is an 8-year-old boy, grievously injured five years ago in a traffic accident. On the other are his parents, who have been sued by the boy in the hopes of forcing the family's insurance company to pay off a $100,000 policy. The lawsuit reached the Minnesota Supreme Court this week, and the court's ruling, expected later this year, could ultimately have a ripple effect on anyone in the state who straps a child into a car seat.

World's Greatest Wife (WGW) and I went to Dr. DNA today on orders from the OB/GYN (henceforth known as "Dr. Uterus"). Mission: genetic counseling, that transparent exercise in medical ass-covery that allows physicians to shrug, hold up their hands in a gesture of innocence, and say "don't blame me" in a court of equity if the kid turns out to have crab claws or something. Seriously, though, the cute "genetic counselor" lady told us about amnio (no thanks), asked us about our...

    City Solicitor Romulo L. Diaz Jr. said a recent push to force the Cradle of Liberty Boy Scouts Council to denounce the national organization's antigay policy had nothing to do with his own homosexuality. "My own sexuality, my own sexual orientation, has never been hidden and never played into my decision," Diaz said in an interview yesterday with The Inquirer. "It has, perhaps, made me more sensitive to the issues." Diaz said he sent another letter yesterday morning seeking a meeting with William T. Dwyer III, council chief executive officer and president. Diaz, the city's first openly gay solicitor and...

    In the name of the father DANI GARAVELLI Sun 16 Jul 2006 ONCE upon a time, I believed it didn't matter a whit whether a baby was born into a family with one parent or two. Or with two mothers or two fathers rather than a mother and a father. Why should it? What was important was not the number or gender of the parents, but whether or not they were loving and attentive. That was, of course, before I had any of my own. Now I realise that bringing up children is a challenge even for two well-meaning...

In a freak string of mishaps, Sean Davey, 18, left a washing basket full of clothes on top of the electric cooker. He then accidentally knocked one of the hob controls, turning on one of the rings, before going out to meet friends. The heated ring set fire to the basket of clothes which, in turn, heated a...
