Did everyone get that she lived paralyzed from the neck down on life support for several months before dying? One account says she suffered some brain damage when her respirator failed. She would have been unable to do anything but lay there and suffer that until someone noticed. And this guy walks.

@2, Perry explains it with his stages of intellectual development. Dualism, Relativity, Multiplicity and Commitment. In Dualism, they want an authority to tell them all the answers. It's a great model to read if you work with high school or college kids.

She'd be blamed for this in any circumstance. Even if she hadn't provided the guns. We'd be asking how she raised him, why they lived alone, why she didn't get him help. If it turns out she did get him help, we'd attack the manner of help she chose. Too many drugs, not enough. Ect, ect, ad nauseum. Once we'd exhausted all the truly low hanging fruit, we'd dig up irrelevant details about her personal life- such as dice games, or doomsday beliefs- and attack them. Oh, wait...we already did that. Hold onto your hats if it turns out she had a boyfriend. Or if she didn't.

Estrogen is responsible for keeping your vagina and urinary tract healthy. Are you on the low dose pill? (Lo-estren, ortho-tri-cyclen lo, ect.) If so, switch to the higher dose one and see if the problem clears up. I tried that myself after noticing that I didn't have any UTI's while pregnant, but they came back immediately afterwards.
