Half of cancer survivors die from other diseases
Tue Apr 3, 2012
I took something different away from this remarkable story. I have many friends and family who have or had cancer, and it completely changes how they look at themselves. Everything is framed in terms of cancer. The results of this study show that they need to embrace the "survivor" part of being a c …
1 in 7 with Alzheimer's or other dementia lives alone, report finds
Thu Mar 8, 2012
My husband was diagnosed with dementia at 40 years old, and none of you who are making jokes have the vaguest idea how terrible and lonely it is for those that are afflicted and their caregivers. I get angry at the disease that has robbed us of so much. I hate it with all of my being, while loving …
Well endowed: Teach For America scores $100 million
Thu Jan 27, 2011
This is a wonderful development! My daughter was a TFA'er and now teaches at YES Prep West in Houston, a group recently awarded a generous grant by Oprah Winfrey in recognition of the hugely positive effect they are having on their students. These teachers work incredibly hard, have very long hours, …
Cheney: Obama finding out we were right about terror
Tue Jan 18, 2011
Pretty ironic that Cheney is alive today due to the medical treatment he would deny others by advocating for repeal of the health care law.
Loughner's friend: 'Jared needed help and Jared didn't get help'
Wed Jan 12, 2011
Close your eyes and imagine for a moment ... what if an imam had said and done all the things Palin has said and done, and a young muslim did the things Jared did. Even if there was no direct connection, would not her words and rhetoric be considered as inciting his actions, or at least contributing …
Fleets likely to drive early demand for electric cars
Wed Dec 1, 2010
I think it would be a brilliant move for the US Postal Service to switch to electric vehicles, or at least hybrids. Would infuse a lot of cash into the new green technology, save the post office millions in fuel, drop carbon emissions, and send a wonderful message. That would be a great stimulus pac …
Major attitude storm is brewing on 'Survivor'
Wed Sep 29, 2010
While I don't defend NaOnka, and find her behavior disgusting, let's remember some prior participants. What about when Amanda and somebody else wrestled each other all over the guest room on their reward while trying to secure the clue to the Immunity Idol? There have been lots and lots of people w …
Trio quits 'Deadliest Catch'
Tue Sep 28, 2010
We are hardcore fans of the show, but after the tragic loss of Phil Harris, losing Sig and the Hillstrands would take the heart out of the show. I can't stand watching Keith berate his brother and the rest of the crew, and Bill was not that fun to watch. Sorry, Discovery. Without Sig and the Hillst …
Montana drinking and driving culture at crossroads
Tue Aug 31, 2010
My family lived along Highway 93 for 10 years and there was rarely a weekend that there was not a traffic-related death in our county, many of them attributed to drunk driving. While we were sad to leave Montana, we were relieved to get away from 93 and thankful our kids were safe from the hazards …
