I’m not someone who freaks out about flying. Yes, every now and then – and especially now that I am a Mom – I have the fleeting “what if…” thoughts, but I believe if it’s my time to go, there isn’t much I can do. Still, the details emerging about the shape of the planes we all travel aboard makes me wonder if at some point engineering – or lack thereof –could mess with the universe’s plans for me.
This is sick on so many levels. A British mother is charged in connection with the alleged abduction of her daughter. Nine year old daughter Shannon Matthews disappeared in February. She was found three weeks later at the home of a family friend, under a bed. There are other sketchy details emerging – the mother’s boyfriend has been charged in an unrelated case with possessing child porn, and more familiy members have been brought in for questioning. If she is involved, I am ill. Who fakes their child’s abduction?
In India, a baby girl born with two faces is being worshipped as the reincarnation of a Hindu goddess. Lali was born with a single head but four eyes, two mouths, two noses… and everything appears to be working fine. It’s almost unbelievable, were it not for the pictures.
And a reminder – we need your Webby votes!
We want to use one of those five word speeches you are all working on so vote early and vote often.
