Enjoy today as pennies fall from heaven

Forget bickering over original sin & worry about moving forward

I don't like the idea of a penny increase in sales tax. I am not wild about an additional 12-cent a gallon tax on gasoline. Nor does the thought of increasing the annual vehicle license fees over 70% thrill me.

Ethical dilemma of reproductive tech

Yesterday, I wrote about Nadya Sureman's controversial decision to allow the implantation of multiple embyos in a quest for maximum fertility and a very large family. She'll get to explain her motives more thoroughly tomorrow. Her interview will air on the Today Show tomorrow, and Tuesday on Dateline. Meanwhile, her doctor is under investigation for stretching the limits of reproductive ethics, guaranteeing huge hospital bills, and jeopardizing the safety both of the mother and of her gestating babies.

Manteca Tea Party

I am amazed that the City leaders are even thinking about raising our taxes again this year. Yes, the "UTILITY TAX" is in the works again. This tax is needed to balance our budget from what I have heard. Now I must tell you that after reading the listing of all the City workers pay in last week's Sun Post I can see why they want more money.
