I got no problem sharing; when I gotta go, I gotta go.
Even that is something I don't want to take part in. Call me quirky, but if I'm in there and just about done, and someone walks in, I just chill and stay seated until I hear them leave. I want as little human contact as possible when going in or coming out of there.

I don't know who, but someone here at work eats tuna at 7:45 in the morning. I can smell it at my desk.

It can suck sitting so close to the kitchen!

I'm not sure that he did either. But it seems to have become a joke between them. After all, Dickie has taken an elevator ride just to use the bosses' bathroom.

Adding a second dog made the dog crap quadruple in amount. I don't know how they did it.

This is the follow-up on the guy who was driving on the ice and his SUV plunged through thin ice. His baby died three days, after being submerged for 15 minutes.

BAC was .13.

I want the wife charged as well. She shouldn't have allowed her drunk husband to even drive. Charge them both, take the surviving kid away, sterilize the idiots.

Let's apply this to a different scene that is not as emotionally charged as one with a child dying. You leave the bar and get in the car with your drunk friend who then causes a wreck that kills someone. Are you saying you, the passenger should be held responsible for "letting" him drive?

I can't compare the two scenarios.

Either mom herself was drunk (and thus should be charged because she's drunk and caring for two young children), or she was sober and didn't insist on driving.

I can't take away the emotion of it. I want them both to burn.

What about endangering the welfare of a child? As the kids' mom, she had a duty to protect them, unlike two adults drinking at a bar.

That's where I am coming from. She had a duty to protect her children and completely failed. Either she also was too drunk to drive, or he's a man's man who isn't going to let the little woman drive his SUV, or something. But she failed to protect her children.

I know women are empowered and all that now, but how exactly should she have not "allowed" him to drive? Overpower him? Smack him? Hog-tie him and toss him in the trunk? I don't believe a passenger should be responsible for the actions of the driver.

She should have refused to get in the car with him, and kept the kids out. Called someone to come get her and give her and the babies a ride home.

Wow. I'm thinking one of those kids either were abused, saw a lot of things at home, or (I hope not) an adult at the school has something to do with this.

Pre school is awfully young to be curious about one anothers bodies. These kids are acting out what they have seen or had done to them.(sadly)

You're removing the most important aspect of the story: the obligation the parents had to protect their child. If an adult wants to screw himself or herself up and it's not going to impact anuyone else, have at it. But a parent has an obligation to protect their child, especially one that is so dependent.

Too young to be curious? No. It's normal for them to be curious, and even the "you show me yours I'll show you mine" thing is normal for preschool and early primary grades, ime.
It is the stuff beyond that that indicate they've had inappropriate things done to them, or seen it.

I agree with this. That is what makes it different.

That's not too young to be curious about each other's bodies, but it is to young to be doing more than looking, pointing, giggling, etc.

You are local- you remember the case in the papers around Harvey, where the mom, bf and 5 year old were in the car. Mom was driving and was pulled over for soemthing and was arrested. Cop told mom to have bf drive. Mom says he's intoxicated. Cop says bf drives. 2 miles later bf gets in accident and 5 year old dies.

Cops are being (rightfully) sued and their pictures have been plastered on teh Trib and Sun Times website.
