Re: “Glenn Beck

Rather long and rambling at times (like myself!), but towards the end Crowther stops vilifying Beck so much and starts pondering the culture in general, and he's got some really good insights.

For what it's worth, there's no need to worry about Beck. He makes a lot of money now, but so what? He will not be remembered in history at all, even though it seems like he is having a big cultural impact now. Money is not a good measurement of one's impact on society or, more importantly, history. Plus he is actually helping to kill the Republican party--and that's a good thing.

Re: “Midwives seek autonomy in N.C.

I had my first baby at home and almost certainly avoided either a c-section or radical episiotomy (long labor, shoulder dystocia). My midwife and I handled the birth fantastically; even the pediatrician was impressed when I told him about it (apparently in the hospital they would've broken my baby's collar bone to get her out! YIKES). My prenatal care with the midwife was also FAR, FAR better than the tandem care I had with the ob/gyn. The midwife was gentle and KNEW about pregnancy; for example, the baby's position. The ob/gyn's (I actually saw 2) were always rough, disinterested, and even after using every machine in their offices still had no clue what position the baby was in, among other things. An ob/gyn simply does not know about BIRTH; an ob/gyn knows about SURGERY. Think about it!!!! I highly recommend to every healthy woman with a healthy pregnancy to have a home birth, whether or not it is legal. However, with that said, it is unacceptable that NC does not have a CPM licensure and this is a very undesirable aspect of the state. Every woman deserves birth choice.
