“America can't handle Michelle's sleeveless arms because America is accustomed to First Ladies whose arms have never lifted anything for themselves. Mrs. Obama looks like she's ready to get to work.”

“Yes, since we don't have a father to blame, we must find another male scapegoat!

How about holding unsupported mothers responsible for their own actions?”

“Kevin..WE DO...but there are still the children..innocents in this insanity...it is disgusting..the fertility doctor should definitely be made to contribute to their care (or lose his/her license)...

I mean..this woman has a PR agent already... I think we all agree..this was the acme of selfish indulgence in some psychotic break with reality..(even her own mother agrees)... GET the TV cameras OFF of her....my gawd...where is THEIR (the media)..sense of responsibility..they feed this sick woman's need for attention... so..Okay..my tax dollars will feed these babies..so be it...we can't let them suffer...actually...I'd rather my tax dollars go to a nut job and her kids..than Thain's (Merrill Lynch)...waste paper basket....”

“In this case, although I am a flaming lib raised by a staunch feminist, I have to agree. I definitely think the doc should be investigated...I am an IVF patient and none of my docs would DREAM of transferring more than 2 (MAYBE 3 if poor quality) embryos into a woman of her age and history, but that is a medical ethics situation, not a child support one.

This woman had all the tools necessary to make responsible decisions about her family, and she failed at every step. It is HER fault, SHE made the bad decisions, and SHE needs to deal with the consequences. I would like nothing better than to see all her children given away to people who don't think of children as accessories. Frankly, blaming the doc is antifeminist in my view...It implies that the poor little woman can't think for herself, when clearly, she can. Just not well. Still not the doc's place to deny treatment, he could probably be sued if he did.”

“Your assertion that "moralists think abortion is new" is entirely unfounded.

And fyi, it goes back further than the 16th century. Try Ancient Greece. In fact, Hippocrates -- you know, the Hippocratic oath by which all medical doctors are supposedly bound -- vehemently opposed the practice of abortion, as presented a patent contradition to the principles of preserving life.”

“I have (rather acute) combined-type ADHD; "cannot tolerate" is just about the only way to describe atomoxetine. Though brief, that trial was without question the absolute worst experience I have ever had in my 24 years of life.

I do not want to continue taking Adderall beyond grad school, so Provigil has given me hope for the future.”

“Yes, just like this messageboard is for promoting the interests of every middlebrow movie buff who likes the sound of their own voice.

What exactly did you think you were getting when you paid your $10.50 at the multiplex? Hollywood is an industry. If we were in it for art, we'd call it "show art" instead of "show business."

Was the quality of Ledger's performance exaggerated in light of his untimely death? Probably. But the notion that his jagged approach spikes any trace of Jack Nicholson's impish mafioso is absurd -- precisely why the "people" don't get to vote for the Oscars.”

“Mr. Ostroy,

First of all, "The Powell Doctrine" is a buzzword, made up by journalists following the end of the Gulf War in hopes of prolonging the lucrative orgy of 24-hour news coverage.

Second, this pseudo-doctrine that you clearly do not understand (yet feel the need to invoke) is much more than a simple quid pro quo of decisive action for quick resolution. In fact, it is more an interpretation of the Weinberger Doctrine -- drawn up by Reagan's Defense Secretary, Caspar Weinberger, boss to General Powell at the time -- merely retooled by Powell to fit the globalized context of expediting isolated conflict.

This recent spate of violence exists outside the Israel and Palestine dynamic. The truth is, people have been fighting over that miserable scab of earth since the Paleolithic era. Countless cultures historically have at some point called Israel "home." You are thus correct when you state that its most recent reformation involving the Jewish people was unlike any other in history: every other ethnic group before Israel had taken it upon themselves to acquire their "home."”

“Yes, U.S. capitalism has let the food industry run loose for far too long; one need look no further than Ocean Spray's latest consumer abortion, cherry-flavored Craisins.

However, there comes a point where progressives and support groups and "cultural theorists" all need to realize that education and tolerance are not the crux of the problem. Today's generation is the most educated generation, ever, in terms of healthy living. Their grandparents never had to take Health 101; and yet these kids are somehow the fattest batch in American history -- not to mention the first generation in the history of humanity to have projected a shorter life expectancy than their parents.

If you want to talk about culture, then what about the spate of diets and exercising throughout recent decades? Surely, with such an increased awareness of the virtues of rigorous health practices, even if we weren't able to lose weight at least we wouldn't be getting any fatter, right? I mean, right?

No, what ails us is a zeitgeist of relativism. Just like the free-market hoopleheads from the Reagan-era, postmodern ideology -- and all its socially constructed idiocy -- is an exercise in indulgence and the disregard for accountability.

We of the 21st Century are tasked with reconciling social responsibility and personal responsibility.”

“"...Thorstein Veblen in 1898 first pondered whether the rules of natural evolution can be applied to economics. Current events prove this to be more relevant than ever."

Not even close. Selectionism ran ENRON into the ground, remember? Economics deals in dynamical systems and chaos -- spaces which transcend silly metaphors like evolution.”
