A place for Canadians.

Thanks for reporting on this, Cienna. It's worth mentioning that I don't think I've ever seen a woman breastfeeding in a public place uncovered. This can't possibly be a wide-spread problem. People who can't handle the sight of a baby eating as God intended is the actual problem, and I'm glad that's been identified.

I'm with the people who want to call out the legislators who think people should voting on equal rights. Bring it! @25! @30! @36! I like it.

I'm never going back from a credit union. BECU is the safest I've ever felt financially. As another poster noted: interest earned! The member benefits go on and on. My husband and I, who have good credit but will be broke forever (partially in order to pay off a 24% interest B of A card), got a BECU auto loan at less than 4%, and just for being members, they gave us $94. It's not a dream, folks. Come on over. The grass IS greener.

But...what is the play and where is it playing? For how long? Should we see it?

@40 It seems to me that offering specific solutions is beside the point. Like you said, they want federal, legislative changes that bring a halt to corporate and Wall St corruption, and that do SOMETHING about the diminishing middle class. That much is so obvious it doesn't need to be said. It's not our job to offer solutions. It's our job to hold our representatives accountable. Personally, I hope this movement holds its ground and grows.

@11 Thank you. That was driving me crazy, too. Props to the Stranger staff for fixing their grammatical errors.

It's good that they're focusing on Indianapolis. They need to do some serious thinking about their water. They privatized it, see, and sold it to a French guy. Now their tap water is undrinkable. I'm happy to drink from the tap just about anywhere. Not in Indy. It's nauseating stuff.

For real: all that work you and Cienna did on women's healthcare rocked my world. Please tell me it's not ending with your departure! Best of luck in Chicago. You'll do beautifully. One of my favorite cities. Remember to look up! The architecture is jaw dropping. As for your trip, did you read the New Yorker article awhile back about Laura and her daughter's fraught publishing relationship? It would be a good one for a road trip.

I just want to thank you, Cienna, for your reporting on this topic. Like @3, I feel like I'm not hearing analysis like yours from other sources. Maybe I'm not looking in the right places? Regardless, keep up the good work!
