Getting back into the swing of things
Just a couple of links and some pics today.
My cousin in law is doing the 3 day walk for breast cancer again this year, and is fundraising at her site. Be sure to check out her pictures from last years walk and drop some money if you can.
Right before I left town I was in a Star Tribune article about the controversy over banning breastfeeding pictures on Facebook. I don't really feel like me quote was placed in the context it was meant -- I went through the banned pictures on facebook and a majority of them were of women who were breastfeeding and had the other breast exposed, and many of them were breastfeeding children that appeared to be two years old or older. I'm fine with people breastfeeding in public, and I didn't feel like that was what these pictures were about. But the article, and the follow up point that both my negative comments and the other negative comments made were by women who couldn't breastfeed, made it clear that we were supposed to look like we were anti-breastfeeding because we weren't able to. So, thanks for once again bringing back my breastfeeding guilt, Strib.
Finally, for a bit of politics, God wants Norm Coleman to win. But only when he's on conservative radio
