Boggling before bed

Just two things I'm boggling over before I try to sleep (oh the pain of a insomniac).

Unfortunately, we can't tell him to listen carefully to what your teacher says and believe everything she says," he said. "That shocks me."

Two families are suing the town of Lexington, several school administrators and a teacher over the issue of parental rights and children's books about same-sex marriage
Because you know folks, if they read a book about it they'll become gay! In all seriousness, while I can understand parents wanting to be the ones to talk to their children about the issue. At the same time if they're going to be teaching hate as a society do we let them do this?

The book in question is King and King by Linda de Haan, Stern Nijland.

America may be the world's superpower, but its survival rate for newborn babies ranks near the bottom among modern nations, better only than Latvia.

US Newborn survival rate ranks low and State of the World's Mothers Report now available.

Most of the articles out there seem to focus on how bad '3rd world' survival rates are when you'd think they'd be boggling at bit more over how low the US ranks.
