    Health officials say they may have no other alternativeThe tuberculosis eating at Ricardo’s lungs makes him a public health threat. His fear of being picked up by immigration authorities has sent him into hiding. A hard-to-treat combination of medical problems left the young farmworker tired, without an appetite and, because of the tuberculosis, quarantined in a hotel room for weeks. But last week, Ricardo, who is also an illegal immigrant, heard that Skagit County Public Health, which has treated him for months, might have reported him to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. Ricardo has been deported to Mexico once before...

    Someone on a board for parenting I go to posted a link to the "Operation Truth" website. I just saw one of their ads for the first time, today. I need help posting a rebuttal about it or a link to a website that counters their distortions.

    I did a search but didn't see this posted. I also googled the topic. During the debates, Edwards seemed like his face has had some work. His cheeks are very smooth, his forehead a little bit, too, but didn't seem Botoxed.

    OTTAWA, Canada (Reuters) -- Canadian officials and police are ignoring a spate of brutal attacks against aboriginal women, at least 500 of whom have vanished or been murdered over the last 30 years, Amnesty International said Monday. In a stinging report, the human rights group condemned what it said was Canada's "terrible official indifference and apathy" toward native women, particularly those who end up in the sex trade. "How many more lives must be lost? How many more indigenous women will be murdered, how many more will go missing before the Canadian and provincial governments are moved to action?" said...

    Please pray for baby Allie and her parents, Andrew and Jenny. She was diagnosed with Leukemia in May and had a cord blood transplant in July but things are not looking good. Her family has opted to not continue with medical intervention because it was just making her more sick. Please read the words of her mother, Jenny, at http://www.scotthousehold.com. Her words are much better than mine. Make sure you have tissue handy as you read the weekly log. Also, there is a candlelight vigil outside of the hospital tomorrow (Saturday) night. Here are details: Vigil for Allie Scott Saturday,...

    This idea came to me as I was waking up this morning. I don't know why I was thinking about it, but... The whole idea of providing health insurance for people who don't have any bothers me- on more than one level. What the heck did people do before health insurance existed or before the government started paying for it? So, this is my thought: What if the US allowed physicians to take a tax deduction for the time spent (and any other costs incurred) if they voluntarily donate free services to those without insurance? Do they allow this now? ...

    I need some advice: My younger brother was raised by conservative parents and has a conservative older sister. (haha) BUT: He spent four years at a private college and has a fairly liberal fiancee. She is one of those overly big-hearted, "under" thinking liberals who is pretty harmless. My brother is pretty conservative in his outlook, but has been brainwashed into saying things like, "I feel uncomfortable voting for George W. Bush because of his record on gay rights and abortion." ??? My brother doesn't even really approve of the gay lifestyle! So, I am trying to think of a ...

    Woman and the New Race* CHAPTER X CONTRACEPTIVES OR ABORTION? SOCIETY has not yet learned the significance of the age long effort of the feminine spirit to free itself of the burden of excessive childbearing. It has been singularly blind to the real forces underlying the cause of infanticide, child abandonment and abortion. It has permitted the highest and most powerful thing in woman's nature to be hindered, diverted, repressed and confused. Society has permitted this inner urge of woman to be rendered violent by repression until it has expressed itself in cruel forms of family limitation, which this same ...

    Odd alliance at State, CNN? by Stella Jatras In my opinion, there is something unhealthy when the recently married CNN’s Christiane Amanpour and the State Department’s James Rubin cover the same "breaking news" story. Ms. Amanpour, who never ceased to present a one-sided CNN perspective throughout the Bosnian war, is now doing the same with her one-sided anti-Serb CNN perspective of the civil war now raging in Kosovo. At the same time, Mr. Rubin is touting the anti-Serb position from the State Department, which is in effect: If the Serbs do not sign on the dotted line, NATO will bomb ...

    Police focus on why Seattle prosecutor was slain By Mike Carter Seattle Times staff reporter The motive for the execution-style slaying of Assistant U.S. Attorney Thomas C. Wales continued to elude police and FBI agents yesterday as they sorted through the activities of a man whose personal and professional life made him a potential target. Some colleagues in the U.S. Attorney's Office, who asked that their names not be used, opined that Wales'involvement as president of the anti-gun Washington CeaseFire was the motive that drove the killer who shot him several times in the neck and back as he worked ...

    There has been almost no better time to be an American. This country is unified in a way we have not seen in over 30 years. Americans everywhere have pulled together in prayer, in generosity to others, and in support of their president. Unfortunately, regardless of best intentions, our economy is faltering- badly. We are now officially in a recession. We are trying to weather the storm and be supportive of the economy- we are trying to maintain our spending habits, we are trying to take vacations to support our travel industry, and we are trying to invest in the ...

    Satanic Fury: The Force Behind Islam Salman Rushdie's novel unleashes death sentence on author by Margaret Sullivan 3/89 In February of this year the world came face to face with the forces behind the religion of Islam. The literary controversy over author Salman Rushdie's novel The Satanic Verses, which occasionally deals with Islam in a fanciful and irreverent way, became front-page news when the Ayatollah Khomeini condemned the author and decreed, "It is incumbent on every Muslim to do everything possible to send him to hell." The Ayatollah's death sentence and $5 million reward for Rushdie's head are symptoms of ...
