The Graduate Christian Fellowship at Carnegie-Mellon University has a group that meets weekly for discussion of various articles. I rarely make it to the discussion, but this week's topic was David Brooks's articles on Patio Man and the "Sprawl People".
I was asked for a summary of the conversation; hopefully, I did an ok job of representing the opinions that were spoken there. (More)

Hi all. I figured I would put a post here, so it will show up in a search engine if anyone happens to remember that our ten year reunion is coming up soon. We are trying to contact people, and at least with my list of people (Cheryl Clough, Bill Earnshaw, Jimmy Card, Brandi Dubuque, and Sam Clemens) I am having a hard time finding anyone...

So, if you know the wherebouts of anyone from the class of 1995, let me know.

Some people have gotten together and collected stories, advice and reference material for midwives (and really anyone) who might be involved in a lawsuit. The book is available online, but you can buy a paper copy if you would like.
I questioned the statement, "Interestingly, there are no current prosecutions of unlicensed midwives in the states that license midwives" in the first chapter, and I found out that "Being unlicensed will always have a higher risk of prosecution, but statistically you are safer to be unlicensed in a licensed state than practicing in an unlicensed state." The reasoning is that if the state licenses midwives, the burden of prosecution falls on the licensing agency, and they don't have the resources to prosecute everyone, whereas if the state does not license midwives, the burden falls on the state, and they can just spend the taxpayers money.

Of course, I am the most objective person in the world, so you will have to agree that Jonathan is the most beautiful baby in the whole world.

Jonathan can now climb up me to a standing position! He starts by pushing on my knees, and then grabs my hands. At first I didn't know if it counted, because I didn't know how much I was contributing. But I think he really is doing it.

He can pick them up rather well and he did enjoy them, after that first "this is a weird sensation" face.
