Jan 25th 2010 12:49PM Alice, are you a moron? First, the first lady is in fantastic shape. I'm not a fan of her husband's smoking habit, however.
Most of us liberals eat locally (we have a great farmers market--grown by mostly conservatives!), spend plenty of time outdoors, and care about the environment. Doesn't sound like the typical H3 driving, resource sucking, McDonald's frequenter to me. I personally haven't been to one in years. I'm better off for it. Why bring your political views in on a topic that clearly has no partisan bias? Typical hate spewer.
Oct 6th 2009 12:18PM What most of you don't seem to realize is children his age are amazing learners. Memorizing the monologue was probably easier for him than it was for Kurt Russell, and he did it to make his father happy. Young children are intellectual sponges. I find it unlikely that his dad forced him to learn the lines. This is much healthier than 'My Baby Can Read' where parents drill their children to memorize for the sake of memorization (my apologies to the parents that use overpriced tools like that to play with their children in an organized fashion--I don't mean you). Parent-child quality time is priceless.
Jun 22nd 2009 9:25PM Barbie was and continues to be a great role model. I find it amusing
that those who complain about her looks speak out the loudest about
looks not being central to personal identity. Barbie has always been
beautiful, but she's also been a doctor, an astronaut, a teacher, and
countless others. She's a success, and encourages others to be a
success. Was I a supermodel-like child? Nope-chubby brunette. But
I loved Barbie and all that she represented. I'm a successful woman,
and refuse to let anyone tell me what I can and cannot do.
Beth, it sounds like you still have some big girl bitterness in spite
of your recent weight loss. I love my curves, keep your flax and your
shallow sales pitch.

May 4th 2009 11:46AM Typical, blame the liberals for conservative mistakes. Your children are smarter than you think (I hope). When I was in elementary school we discussed current events, held mock elections, and discussed party politics. Obviously this school teaches the same, otherwise why would Rice be talking to 4th graders? Just because some people choose to limit their children, doesn't mean that all parents will. In truth, it doesn't really matter who asked the question. The answer is what counts. I'm proud this child has the ability to think. It's a rare commodity any more.
May 1st 2009 11:40AM Hmm, I also love Joss Whedon, but 'Dollhouse' is possibly the worst thing he's ever exposed us to. When Eliza Dushku was added to the Buffy cast I wanted to die. She's a vapid walking set of boobs. Terminator, Bones, NCIS, Criminal Minds and Chuck are quite possibly the best shows on tv right now. It kills me the garbage that is repeatedly renewed like the fake docudramas following bratty socialites and the mind numbing Ghost Whisperer. Ugh. Just because you watch a lot of tv, doesn't mean it actually has to live up to the alternate title of 'idiot box'.
Apr 30th 2009 12:28PM What a load of social scientist nonsense. Insignificant associations can be made about a lot of things and have just as much merit. Anyone remember the study that equated ice cream sales in NY with sexual assault? Turns out it was the weather that made both increase, not the need for ice cream. Their suggestion to change the spelling of your name is not a good idea. People will constantly misspell your name which is embarrassing for them. Potential employers do not like being embarrassed (who does?) and are less likely to employ you for being 'weird'. Of course this won't apply if you wish to work for an unconventional company, but those are less common. Keep your name, own it. Don't let others label you.
Apr 27th 2009 11:21AM McCain would have been a fine president (in 2000). His choice of a running mate this past election was his downfall. Sarah Palin that close to the presidency? Ugh. I'd rather have Bush for 4 more years. That's how wretched that ignorant woman is.
Apr 10th 2009 11:28AM A good physician will treat your acne based on your type of acne. And it is appropriate to ask your primary care physician to help. Comedonal acne (non inflammatory) is best treated with topical tretinoin and benzoyl peroxide. Adapalene (Differin) is also used. Mild inflammatory acne (papules and pustules) responds well to topical antibiotics such as clindamycin gel. Combined with benzoyl peroxide (aka benzaclin) treats inflammatory acne plus comodones. Moderate to severe inflammatory acne can be treated many ways, but almost always needs combination therapy. A topical retinoid and oral antibiotic for a month or so usually works well. People with nodular cystic acne are usually treated with oral isotretinoin (Accutane). This should be used in consultation with a dermatologist rather than your PCP because of the adverse effects. Just throwing popular products at your skin because a celebrity uses it is not wise. Maybe someone else should have written this article.
Feb 20th 2009 10:33PM Now I know why teen pregnancy is so common. Idiocy, plain and simple. Hey parents, do you want to prevent your kids from having sex? Talk to them. Start early (much earlier than you plan), before they get to middle school, definitely. Parents who won't allow their children to attend sex ed in schools are essentially ruining their child's life. Ask a random teen their views on sex, STDs, and pregnancy. If they answer, what they tell you will scare the crap out of you. No one is teaching these kids how to respect themselves or their partners, and many of them have no concept how to protect themselves. Eh, just preach abstinence at them and hold your breath. That clearly works Grandma.
