In Which My Daughter Decides To Shun The Spotlight

Date: 06/08/2009

Uh-oh. Let's do the math here: if my stock-in-trade is stories about and pictures of my kids, and one of those kids decides that she is JUST SO OVER having her picture taken, and we calculate that equation as x (where x = writing fodder for a parent memoirist) - y (where y = willing child) = NO CONTENT FOR MAH BLOG. Yeah. What did I say? UH-OH. Let's hope that Jon & ...

Leann Rimes Stalks Eddie Cibrian...So They Say

Date: 06/03/2009

So, the hot news these days is that Leann Rimes is allegedly stalking Eddie Cibrian after their alleged affair. I'll be the first to admit that I'm not the person to ask about "hot" celebrity news. It's possible I was the last to know that Angelina Jolie was adopting another baby. And I possibly recently asked a friend, "Who are Jon and Kate? What's the plus 8?" So this bit of news caught ...

Jon and Kate: Can Their Marriage Be Saved?

Date: 06/01/2009

Why do we care so much about Jon and Kate? Why is the show about these two people and their twins and sextuplets so popular? And why are their marital problems getting so much attention? I feel terribly sad for the entire family. Jon and Kate were a young couple with twins who wanted another child and so had fertility treatments which resulted in sextuplets. They now support their 10-person ...

Doesn't Pro-Life Mean Pro LIFE?

Date: 05/31/2009

(Follow-up to reflections on Jon & Kate postponed for a day or two) George Tiller, a doctor who performed late-term abortions, was shot to death at 10 a.m. today, at his church outside Wichita, Kansas. For some, like Operation Rescue Founder Randall Terry, Tiller was a " mass-murderer " and deserved what he got. For others - their voices represented by women like NOW President Kim Gandy ...

Jon & Kate Plus A Few Lessons In Being A Difficult Woman

Date: 05/29/2009

So, yeah: Jon and Kate Gosselin. They've, like, got this TV show, right? About their life raising eleventeen kids? Wait - eight, is it? Whatever. I've never watched the show. Which, I suppose, means that I shouldn't really comment on the whole sideshow that is the show and their lives. Or is it their lives and the show? Does anybody really know where the show stops and their lives begin, or vice- ...

Jon, Kate, and the Breakdown of the Evangelical Family

Date: 05/26/2009

My young daughter is a dedicated fan of the TLC program Jon and Kate Plus Eight , a reality show of a wholesome family with a set of twins and a set of sextuplets.   Over the weekend, TLC ran a marathon of four seasons of the show leading up to the beginning of its fifth season on Monday night.   I confess--I spent a good number of hours watching the reruns with her.   Rather unbeli ...
