Letter: Selfish choice

so are you saying that other than the mother's life being in danger, there is no excuse to take the life of a 16 week pregnancy? also, don't put words in my mouth like that. it's despicable.

Letter: Selfish choice

If at any point I am told that my son has a chance to enjoy 60 seconds of life before he dies, I am going to do everything in my power to give him that chance. What has he done so far? The most innocent of anyone on this message board, he deserves a chance to live. We could debate at which "point" this life comes into existence. I would tell you that when we saw him at seven weeks, and could hear his heartbeat, I knew there was life inside. at 16 weeks, there is no doubt. We can already see facial features developing. Right now, at this moment, he is alive at 16 weeks exactly. Were he not my son, no one should have the right to take his life away. The law says that his life could be taken away for the next four weeks. The law is wrong. He deserves to live. So does every other baby at 16 weeks of pregnancy.

My wife is now 16 weeks pregnant. It is our first baby. We got to see the sonogram earlier in the week. The baby has five fingers on each hand, five toes on each little foot, was moving his arms and legs around, moving his head. He has a brain, spinal cord, stomach. We got to listen to his heartbeat. The biggest impression I had though was just how active this little guy is. I can't understand how anyone could see him and think, "eh, kill him. He is just a fetus. Ignore his beating heart and the fact that he is kicking his legs around."

City commissioner wants review of city's storm shelter policies in wake of Oklahoma tornado

he was quoted. "if you were in a grocery store shopping that day, you will probably be shuffled off to a back room and a walk in cooler maybe held together by duct tape." those coolers are obviously designed with a little more thought than mr farmer used when stating the above quote. The cooler took a direct hit from an F5 tornado. All that was left was the cooler. I wonder why they were shuffled back to that area. How much more ideal can you get than a 100% survival rate? What are you looking for when an f5 tornado strikes Lawrence?

Dear Jeremy farmer,

That cooler held together by duct tape saved every persons life in the dillons in Joplin two years ago tonight. Glad you do a little homework before shooting off your mouth

Tune In Tonight: CNBC doesn't stand out with 'Crowd Rules'

Thank you for the tip to tune into cnbc this evening. I thoroughly enjoyed the Boston Bruins dramatic 3rd period come from behind overtime victory over the Toronto maple leafs. Hockey is indeed entertaining reality television!

Heavy snowfall set to begin later tonight; forecasts call for 10 inches by noon Tuesday

Which does the city prefer? Park on the street with roads covered in snow blocking clean path for plow trucks or is it better to park in the driveway and block the sidewalk

Heavy snowfall set to begin later tonight; forecasts call for 10 inches by noon Tuesday

Anyone know which of these two options the city prefers? Should I park in my driveway and block the sidewalk or park on the street and block the plows? Which is less of an inconvenience? I'm leaning toward parking in the driveway and partially blocking the sidewalk so roads are freed up and there will likely be fewer jiggers etc? Anyone have any experience with this? I don't want a ticket
