Shar? Before you agree with Ron 100 percent, make sure you understand him 100 percent. I don't understand Mike's winkie comment either. (I love ya Mike, but clarify your pronouns, k?)
And yes, Shar, perhaps I gave more credit to the compassionate folks of Van Couver than is deserved. I had no idea that these legal acts of compassion are mere cosmetic. I'll take it though. If you've ever shivered, wept, sweat and cried through three months of non-compassionate methadone withdrawal, you'll take anything. Or should I qualify my own pronouns too? I don't live there--so I dunno. That's not sarcasm, it's how I feel. And may the Gods bless Canada for allowing folks to have 2mg.s of codeine in their aspirin too.
I regret bringing octomom into discussion, but I did so in order to convey how disconerting I find the role of Physician as "God." Bad example? I dunno, but? As everybody learns on the playground, you can't indict someone's mamma impersonally. Again--I say my concern is for the lives of the kids, first, and legal precedent second.
Jennifer Maxwell? It's great to see you here, although I'm confused yet again. I'll put you in the category of --> Kari? I'm confused as to why you said that--I don't believe I once ever even hinted I considered life as expendable, disposable, negotiable, or even government controllable. NOT EVEN CHINA CAN ENFORCE THAT--but they try, I'm sorry to acknowledge.
And thank you, kacy...you're a light at the end of the tunnel. Thanks for the acknowledgement that just maybe society is not well served by taken broken hearted people and breaking their spirit as well. And as soon as I find the article regarding how prisons are now a government profit business (Vanity Fair) I'll make that point, properly referenced as well.
Jenn? Pandora's box is a box of jones.
Ain't nothin' left in it but hope. But welcome back, lovie.
