It's because of people like you that sometimes if my vegetarianism comes up in conversation, people will immediately get defensive and start telling me why they aren't vegetarian. I always assure them that I respect the dietary choices of others and give the example of how my husband isn't vegetarian.
Your rant is often incoherent and offensive. You owe an apology to those you, to use your own term, have "pissed on" in your letter to Dan.

@22 That is awesome how your grandmother became so accepting of your uncle.
@41 The story your husband told about "the mom" made me laugh. Thanks for sharing.

If SIW can't afford therapy right now, I'd recommend she get a copy of The Anxiety & Phobia Workbook. I have social anxiety, and this book has helped me in particular with identifying and countering negative thought patterns. It might help SIW too.

Alberta definitely has its share of WTF. That Dr. Levin was able to practice psychiatry here at all is atrocious. I'm also not happy that the media here are so slow to pick up on this. As of the writing of this comment, neither of Calgary's major newspapers nor CBC is carrying the story. CTV's station in Calgary is reporting it. Thanks for sharing this, Dan. This reader in Calgary appreciates it.

My husband and I got a high-end jogging stroller for our infant son because we have chosen not to own a car. Our thinking was that we wanted our son to be comfortable in a mode of transportation that he would spend a lot of time in, and he loves being in the stroller. If we had a car, we would have opted for a cheaper stroller.
I am going to get a baby backpack because he is starting to outgrow the carrier I currently use to wear him for short distances. I can't wear my son and walk for long periods of time because of some back issues. I'd really love to wear him more than I do, though.
I agree with Dan that babies generally need a lot less than many parents seem to think. My baby's travelling needs are pretty basic: food, diapers, wipes, a spare change of clothes, and, if we're out for a long time, a toy.
