Codifying child care

When you send your kids to a public school or private school, you have to abide by the rules of the game. It’s as plain as that.

Anyone who has conversed with me in detail knows how I feel about parents substituting prayer or homeopathy for actual medicine in treating their children. In early 2008, the case of Madeline Neumann received international attention and once again brought the case of faith-based treatments to the forefront of international scrutiny.

With all this talk about H1N1, what is being missed?

Unfortunately H1N1 has claimed another life: Article: “Kansas Man, 75, Dies From H1N1 Flu” And this recent death is in line with what I’ve been hearing about H1N1: if you’re in good health, you have nothing about which to worry.
