Actually this is usually a sign of gestational diabetes. But not always....Alison and Erin. AndRead More BIGBAKER I've heard of bigger babies being born at home years ago too but that gets into the whole accuracy of the way they were weighed. My daughter weighed 9lb 1oz. I'm average size. My birth weight was around 7 pounds. My husband was a premie and weighed about 5 pounds. But he was a big man. Not huge. He was 6ft 1in and weighed about 190 at his heaviest. I'm 5' 3" and weighed 165 at full term. Sometimes the size of the baby is determined by ancestors long dead! My son weighed 7lb 12oz and he was born 4 weeks premature! Imagine where he was headed! So don't go blaming things that may have NOTHING to do with it!

" Prosecutors contend he planned to murder the two teens and waited in the basement with aRead More bottle of water, a book, energy bars and two guns" How did he know that these kids were going to show up? Did he invite them just to kill them? If that's the case, it was premeditated. He shot one of them in the face after he was down and said he wanted them dead. I'd call that guilty of murder. His attorney is calling it stress.

I don't disagree with you that we're becoming less and less a free country but it's wrong to blameRead More democrats alone. It wasn't dems alone that passed the patriot act. It hasn't been dems alone that have been re-uping it since it was passed the first time. On how bad Hillary will be as a president. Every president is bad in some ways. Reagan raised taxes more than a dozen times. Bush took us to war on two fronts with no way to pay for it. Clinton signed DOMA and DADT. Obama gave away the farm in order to get the Affordable Care Act passed. Papa Bush said that atheists shouldn't be considered Americans. Sure Hillary will be a bad president in some ways.... they are all bad in some way. I can tell you this much though, any president is going to be a worse president when the publicly stated goal of the opposition is to obstruct that president at any and all opportunities. The dems did it to Bush. The republican'ts are doing it to Obama. It's like Palestine and Israel, they'll fight to the death out of spite and habit, neither one of them knowing which one threw the first punch and not caring because winning is the only goal. What America needs are citizens that go into government for the good of the country instead of the good of their party.
Michael Hipp April 24, 2014 at 03:03 pm
Oh, one last point on your last post B. Dub. "Hillary presidency combined with a DemocraticRead More Congress." Ain't gonna happen. Republicant's have gerrymandered the states to absolute death. They have the House for the foreseeable future and they have a good chance at getting the Senate. I can't guarantee you who's going to win in 2016 but I can very well guarantee you that no one party will take executive and legislative branches, both.

Hillary is a very smart able woman. She served well as Senator from NY and as SECSTATE. I wouldRead More vote for her again. The drooling halfwits from the tea party can't stop her. The republicans will never win with tea party assholes fragmenting the vote. Very reasonable republican candidates are now forced into making idiotic statements to show that they agree in some way with the droolers. Hil is a winner already.

Maybe Hillary Clinton's brains in Sara Palin's body, less a few pounds maybe but that's just myRead More preference, I am not judging her for not meeting my ideal, and without an accent that makes her sound like a character in Fargo; and who remembers Fargo? Exactly. I don't know that it can be done but such a creation might win regardless of which party she would represent. Image being ever more important as substance is draining away and all. On the other hand, if 60% of the nation is over weight and 60% are emotionally disturbed, N.J has a Governor who talks a lot without saying anything. He sounds like a true man of the people to me.

Bob West April 24, 2014 at 06:20 pm
@ eddie, I wouldn't mention any specific phone-calling service in case any other arseholes areRead More looking for tips. But for better or worse, those calls are traceable. They have "add-ons" that can fool your friends, but certainly not the NSA. BTW, that phone service was bought by Microsoft a couple of years ago- so much for any illusion of confidentiality. By using it, you "opt in" to give up your privacy, just like with G-mail. Using a computer to make a prank call is a dumb move in itself. Any computer transmits a wealth of information. Non-smart phones are a lot less traceable than anything else. Have you ever seen how many items advertisers and other web sites use to uniquely identify your computer? They can't tell your name but track your unique computer. It's called "computer fingerprinting." As soon as you give your name at a web site they track, they've got you. Check this site sometime to see how unique your computer is-- https://panopticlick.eff.org/ .... I suspect that nobody's putting much effort into tracing this call, because in the big scheme of things, they've got more serious things to deal with. (Unfortunately, unlike our local PDs.) Shame this idiot got so much publicity from his crime. I think the glorifying news "perp walk" should be stopped in virtually all cases.

I got you Kevin. I f you delete the point of contention then the debate is incoherent. The BlackRead More Panther of poetry was defending his viewpoint. I disagree with race based politics but he was standing up in the arena of ideas Then poof...( hello Patch?)... he was gone. I know the Panthers have a terror tactic history, but I thought media has forgiven the past. In Philly 08, Holder allowed military uniformed poll watchers to prevent any 2nd party participation with obvious intimidation. I appreciate Patch. We gotta talk this stuff out. Maybe the panther crossed the line his last comment we did not see, and they scrubbed up a bit. What ever happened, I do appreciate the Patch forums. It is a good local thing for info and exchange. If it becomes editorially dysfunctional, then we all will move on to a more open forum.
