I'm not a good flyer. I don't like little planes so even getting up there would do me in. Then to jump out. She did say, that while it looked like she was hanging on and may have changed her mind, that was not the case. She's my hero. I hope I have kind of bravery at 80.
I'm meeting my Michigan sister in Tampa the middle of June. I have to fly the first leg on a small commuter plane and then take the big plane on into Tampa. Then, reverse it coming back home. As much as I do not like flying, I like traveling more. So I suck it up and "just do it".
The other item in the news was the guy that has 30 children with 11 difference women.
The reports I have seen have stated he has anywhere from 20, possibly 21 children... up to 30. I think the low end is what has been proven. Some may be waiting for an "official" status. I've heard he was 29 and 30 years old. Taking it down to the bare bones, all agree he has any more children than his minimum wage job can support.
At first glance my reaction was this man is a menace to society and if there was a reason for forced sterilization, this is it. But then, I thought, what about these mothers? Women need to bare the total responsibility for birth control because there are men like this out there. Maybe not with 30 children, but for a lot of them, there is child support not being paid to a mom raising that child alone.
Now if these women are intentionally getting pregnant and having children in order to get government money, oh, lordy, don't get me started on that.
I still think he is disgusting. I think the people of Tennessee will gladly pay for his vasectomy rather than pay for anymore children.
