    We fear that which is different. The media thrives on playing up the different, and fear.

    I'll bet that whoever wrote the story never stopped to think about whether it was appropriate to throw in that word. Of course, I think it's sick that we live in a country where the deaths of people who aren't famous, but are related to famous people, get reported as news. Poor Lark should have been remembered in the obituary page on A-18, as you and I will be.

    Well, if I have another day like today, I'm taking some people with me. So I'm aiming for at least page 3 of the Metro section.

    Well said, Ken.

    One of my best friends – who happens to be adopted – lost her (adoptive) father a couple of years ago. Throughout the service, I was taken aback by the number of times my friend was referred to as the "adopted daughter" in the family, while her sisters got to be their father's plain ol' daughters, without the qualifiers.

    I had the exact same reaction, especially when the final graf says "her son", referring to her biological son. I was pissed!
