Talked to my daughter today, she seems in brighter spirits than she was a few days ago. Her fiancé has spoken to an attorney and will be meeting with him next week. Apparently he’s going for custody of his son and my daughter says that it’s okay with her.

What a shame that it’s going that far. This little boy, under the right circumstances, could have three adults in parental positions to love him and take care of him if everyone could back off and get things in the right perspective.

If the three of them, the ex, the fiancé and my daughter could sit down as adults and explain what each of them expected of each other, calmly discuss what’s reasonable and appropriate and establish some boundaries, it would be a step in the right direction.

Another step would be to let the grandmother know that she needs to stay completely out of it because by meddling, all she’s doing is keeping things stirred up and slowly but surely, alienating her own son by meddling in his personal business. Whether she realizes it or not, she’s definitely not doing her grandson any favors.

For my daughter’s sake I hope it can be worked out but my gut instinct as her mother says that she should seriously rethink this upcoming marriage.

I really enjoy reading your blog, it always has great insight. But I am very frustrated with the media’s lack of questions to the presidential candidates about global warming. Now that it is down to just a few candidates I would think that this would be a bigger issue.

Live Earth just picked up this topic and put out an article ( http://www.liveearth.org/news.php ) asking why the presidential candidates are not being solicited for their stance on the issue of the climate change. I just saw an article describing each candidate’s stance on global warming and climate change on earthlab.com http://www.earthlab.com/articles/PresidentialCandidates.aspx . So obviously they care about it. Is it the Medias fault for not asking the right questions or is it the candidates’ fault for not highlighting the right platforms? Does anyone know of other websites or articles that touch on this subject and candidates’ views? This is the biggest problem of the century and for generations to come…you would think the next president of the United States would be more vocal about it.
