The Random Ruminations and Observations of a Curmudgeon

Women and Water

In reading about the woman in SF who threw her children into SF Bay, one cannot help but be reminded of the Susan Smith case, drowning her children in a lake inside a car, and the one in Texas where the children were drowned in the bathtub.

When men murder their children, it is often via a violent act; women seemingly drown them dispassionately.  

Is it just me, or do the circumstances surrounding the tragic death of David Horowitz’s wife seem very strange?  

Also, it is reported that Roche will perhaps allow some generic firms to manufacture Tamiflu.  I seem to remember back in the old days, Sam Adams beer was brewed by Pittsburgh Brewing on contract.  What’s so different here?  The generics manufacture on contract to Roche and Roche distributes it.  

Wouldn’t you like a full accounting of Judith Miller’s sex life for the last 5 years?  No details, just a list.
