New Marine Mom Chooses Discharge to Keep Baby U.S, Marine and new mother, Cpl. Jennifer Washington, has decided to ask for a discharge rather than abandon her baby to go fight in Iraq, Marine Corps officials said on Thursday.
Washington, a mechanic engineer whose Marine sergeant husband was deployed to Iraq in January, was faced with a heartbreaking decision this week when she was given deployment orders herself.
"I told them I can't go and that I have a four-month-old son. They said, 'No, you're going anyway.' Somebody in my command advised me that I can give up my child for adoption. I said 'Oh no, that's not going to happen'," Washington told reporters.
Washington, who has been with the Marines for three years, said she was also the main caregiver for her mother and could not find anyone to care for both her mother and son while she was away.

Ok, so I haven't blogged anything other than links for some time. Life has been really busy: I got promoted, which is super, and means more $$$ in the savings account, however, until they hire someone to replace my old responsibilities, I have 2 jobs. Both of which of course must be done well so my superiors feel happy about promoting me rather than regretful. So, fun things like staying at work until 10:30 pm etc. Hopefully however we can hire someone soon.

North Korean Catholics Celebrate Their First Official Mass in Seoul - New kid on screen When Donnie Wahlberg learned that his father, a longtime alcoholic, had suffered several serious strokes and was near death five years ago, he did what any other churchgoing Irish Catholic son would do.
"I had him baptized," the actor reveals.
"He was worried that he was going to die and he wouldn't go to Heaven, so I arranged for it. I said, `Dad, you sent us to church all those years and you don't even have a religion?'"
While Sunday mass played a big part in Wahlberg's life growing up in the middle-class suburb of Dorchester, Mass., the role of family was even larger. He shared a tiny bedroom with his five brothers (there were nine children in all), including Mark, 31, star of Boogie Nights and The Truth About Charlie. - The God Squad is Here! Check Them Out!

Dereliction of Duty When he was tapped to accompany President Clinton and carry the nuclear "football" that contains the top-secret codes the President needs in case of nuclear war, Colonel Robert "Buzz" Patterson was proud and grateful. He had already put his life on the line for his country many times as he flew combat missions over the Persian Gulf and Bosnia, and he was honored to take on this new and awesome responsibility.
But when he entered the Clinton White House, his gratitude and awe soon gave way to shock, revulsion, and sorrow - as he saw first-hand the cavalier and self-serving way Slick Willie and his henchmen went about the business of running the country. In Dereliction of Duty: An Eyewitness Account of How Bill Clinton Compromised America's National Security, Patterson tells the whole story. Day in and day out in the Clinton White House, he witnessed the President's contempt for the military, his indifference to important issues except insofar as they served his own political or personal purposes, and his reduction of the Office of the Presidency to a playground for his own ambition and thirst for sordid perks.

Opera shows graceful, humorous response to Microsoft blunder - Feb 24, 2003 Microsoft has responded to Opera in a petty style: Microsoft began to sabotage the Opera browser when Microsoft discovered it being used to visit the MSN Web site.
As has been documented on the Opera site and elsewhere on the Internet, Microsoft began to send Opera browsers — and Opera browsers alone — instructions to shift the text display 30 pixels to the left for portions of its pages. The intended result was to create the impression that Opera wasn't displaying the pages correctly.

Twins Are Reunited After 20 Years

I am on the phone with Robert Burrows, author of the recently published political novel Great American Parade. This book has sold only 400 copies nationwide, and Burrows seems flabbergasted to be hearing from me. The most prestigious newspaper to have shown any interest so far is the Daily Student at Indiana University.
I tell Burrows that if he is willing to submit to an interview, I am willing to review his book at length in The Washington Post. The only catch, I said, is that I am going to say that it is, in my professional judgment, the worst novel ever published in the English language.
"My review will reach 2 million people," I said.
"Okay," he said.

Maybe he has been replaced by some sort of body double?
