Mother Charged With Poisoning of 5-Year Old Son

Via: NYT

1

Lacey Spears’s struggle seemed like every mother’s worst nightmare. From the moment her son was born, she said, he was afflicted with never-ending illnesses.

When the boy, Garnett, was only 5 days old, he was rushed to the hospital for an ear infection, blood pouring from his nose. He had fevers, infections and, always, “a failure to thrive,” she said. By his ninth month he needed a feeding tube.

And Ms. Spears shared every travail with the world on a blog and through social media. In an age of oversharing and obsessive parenting, she found a wide audience.

But, according to the authorities, Ms. Spears was the real cause of Garnett’s illnesses.

Ms. Spears, 26, who lived in New York City’s northern suburbs, was arrested and charged with the murder of her 5-year-old son on Tuesday, accused by the authorities of fatally poisoning him in January with an overdose of sodium.

For over half a century of photojournalism, Henri Dauman has journeyed the world documenting the historical events, personalities and cultural changes of the 20th century. As a feature photographer for LIFE Magazine he captured personalities from the political world such as John and Jacqueline Kennedy, Richard Nixon and celebrities from the world of art and pop culture like Andy Warhol, Elvis Presley, Marilyn Monroe and many others at telling moments of their lives.

Richard Hanna (R-NY) – ‘GOP Genius of the Day’

Via: Huffington Post

Congressman Richard Hanna (R-NY) is fed up with the GOP.

Hanna singled out Michele Bachmann’s “suggestion that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin be investigated to see if she has ties to Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood” as an example of a party that has gone off the rails.

The Syaracuse Post-Standard has the story:

“I have to say that I’m frustrated by how much we — I mean the Republican Party — are willing to give deferential treatment to our extremes in this moment in history,” he told The Post-Standard editorial board.

…“We render ourselves incapable of governing when all we do is take severe sides…” he said. “If all people do is go down there and join a team, and the team is invested in winning and you have something that looks very similar to the shirts and the skins, there’s not a lot of value there.”

…“I would say that the friends I have in the Democratic Party I find … much more congenial — a little less anger,” he said.

I expect to be doing another of these ‘GOP Genius of the Day’; possibly in 2013, 2014, or 2015.

But I suggest you, ‘not hold your breath’.

“Quote of the Day”

Via: Huffington Post

“People now don’t die from prostate cancer, breast cancer and some of the other things. ‘The fact of the matter is’, our healthcare today is so much better, we’re living so much longer, because of innovations in drug development, surgical procedures, stents, implantable cardiac defibrillators, neural stimulators — they didn’t exist 10 years ago.”

– GOP New York (Buffalo) congressional candidate Chris Collins

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/07/03/chris-collins-cancer_n_1647196.html

~~~

~~~

The ‘FACTS of the matter’ are:

Fact 1. An estimated 577,190 people in the United States will die from cancer this year, including about 39,920 deaths from breast cancer and 28,170 from prostate cancer, according to the American Cancer Society.

Fact 2. Uninsured people are less likely to detect cancer in its early stages, making it far more expensive to treat.

Fact 3. Uninsured/Insured people often lose their job, home, and savings; paying for their families health.
