Lindy’s Blog: Where Mom is Always Right

August 9, 2008

What the…?

I think I woke up this morning in an alternate universe, based on the interesting variety of headlines in the news this morning.  Or perhaps, I am still dreaming.  (One could only hope.) 


Legislature Passes Bill for “Gay Day” Celebrations in California Public Schools     California public schools soon will be planning “gay day” celebrations every May 22 unless Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger vetoes the legislation.

     Makes me glad I don’t live in CA, and that the kids will be attending Catholic school

British Businessman Decapitates Himself in Sports Car Suicide    

According to the Mail, Gerald Mellin, 54, had been consumed with dark thoughts surrounding his 34-year-old wife’s decision to leave him.

The day before his death, a court had granted Mirielle Mellin additional alimony, the Mail reported.

Following the decision, in the last contact with his wife, Mellin sent a text message reading, “Congratulations, XXX.”  The businessman then reportedly tied one end of a rope he kept in his Aston Martin convertible to a tree and wrapped the other end of it around his neck as he sat in the driver’s seat. He then drove the car at a high speed onto a busy road, forcing other drivers to witness his violent suicide, the Mail said.

     I’m not trying to make light of this, but wouldn’t a gun have been easier?  How awful.

Cops May Have Mistakenly Nabbed Twin of Farm Animal Sex Assault Suspect   

     I know.  I had to read that headline twice, too.  Let’s just say sheep in the UK are still in danger.

Arkansas Doctor Reprimanded for Secretly Sterilizing Patient With ‘Learning Difficulties’     

The Arkansas State Medical Board has reprimanded an obstetrician who once practiced in Berryville after she admitted to secretly tying the fallopian tubes of a patient with learning difficulties.

Dr. Shirolyn Ruth Moffett, who now has a private practice in Eureka Springs, performed the procedure on a patient last year during a Caesarean section. A split medical board vote 6-5 Thursday to place the reprimand on Moffett’s permanent record, but it doesn’t stop her from practicing medicine.

Moffett says she performed the procedure because she feared the lining of the patient’s uterus would burst if she got pregnant again.

      Whoever said doctors aren’t always looking out for their patients’ best interests?


Portland, Oregon’s Precious Children and other pro-lifers are in the midst of a battle to keep Planned Parenthood Columbia-Willamette from building a mega-facility in a minority neighborhood. This is the same Planned Parenthood affiliate that made the disgusting site. (WARNING: Subject matter of this site is offensive and is NOT appropriate for children.)

      How intolerant of  Portland pro-lifers to not want an abortion mill in their city, and all the trash Planned Parenthood tries to teach its youngsters.

Study: Supplement May Allow Weight Loss Without Dieting

      Riiiiiiiight.   (But what was the name of it?)

I’ll stop torturing you all and myself now.  Another Saturday is upon us, and not a moment too soon. 

I am adding a new link, fyi.
