Re: Earlabia - CBC ran a story about cosmetic surgery available to fix the gaping holes when regret sets in.

Well the manufacturers ARE marketing products aimed directly at kids (yes, that was intentional). Check out the pictures of the pink pint-sized rifles in this CBC article about the manufacturer of "My First Rifle" pulling their website following the Kentucky shooting of the 4 year old by her 5 year old brother.

I am so sorry that you have suffered such devastating rejection from your family and I am glad to know that in the years since your graduation, you have built a new life and new family for yourself with loving and supportive friends.

The recent contact with your family is the re-opening of an old and deep wound that reminds you what was lost ten years ago. It hurts - and you are not a weak or broken person by acknowledging that pain. Everything you have done since that graduation day has shown you have a great inner strength.

It is okay to mourn your loss again, but please recognize this newest act of rejection has given you a small part of your family back - someone you last saw as a five-year old boy. The act of facing your hateful family again and giving a safe space to your nephew is another beautiful act of courage and grace. The pain you feel now is a mere stumble on a long and powerful journey you started 10 years ago. You will get UP, you will feel STRONG again and you will go FORWARD, because that is what you did BEFORE and it is WHO YOU ARE. Never forget it.

I wish you all the best and I hope you keep in touch with Dan so he can let us all know how you and your nephew are doing.

@6 as an Albertan I take exception to that. Not all of us conservatives. It should also be noted that Harper is not a born-and-raised-Albertan (as I am), but is originally from Toronto. Just sayin'

I've actually noticed more bees in my flower garden this year than previous years. I live in the middle of the city so I'm not sure where they come from - what's a bee's range anyway?

Perhaps all the bees are moving here to Canada for the health care.

@29 - not really an equivalent comparison considering the population of Dodge City was only 996 people in 1880. That would be an annual rate of 1.5 murders (per 1K). If you extrapolate the murder rate to be consistent with population then Dodge City of the 1880's would have had the astounding rate of 150 murders (per 100K).

Flip it around and West Virginia has 0.035 murders (per 1K) and Mississippi 0.071 murders (per 1K) based on your figures.

Nuke LA from orbit. It's the only way to be sure T.Mills and the Millionaires are wiped out.

I heard that Paul the Psychic Octopus tipped off the Bahamanian police as to Harris-Moore's whereabouts. Next up - the gulf oil spill. Is there nothing he can't do?
