Once Again, It's About Choice


Connie Schultz
Sixty-year-old Sandy grew up in poverty. When she started talking about her childhood in Cleveland, her voice shifted into present tense.
"I'm the third of four girls, and we're all wearing donated clothes," she said over coffee last week. "We never know where the clothes are coming from. By the time they get to me, they're in rags.
"Every piece of clothing has somebody else's name in it, because the schools make you do that, you know, label all of your stuff. So I have to write my name under theirs."

Maxine Waters: Swamp Queen

Michelle Malkin
Confirmed: "Drain the swamp" is Washington-speak for "Let it fester." While House ethics watchdogs dither, it's shady business as usual for ethics scandal-plagued Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters. Last summer, the House Ethics Committee charged the entrenched California congresswoman with three violations related to her wheeling and dealing on behalf of minority-owned OneUnited Bank in Los Angeles. The panel accused Waters of bringing discredit to the House for using her influence to seek and secure taxpayer-subsidized special favors for the failing financial institution.

It's starting to look as if the heartland may be losing its pulse.
This latest Code Blue is brought to you by Michigan, where state elected officials are debating whether foster children deserve to wear new clothes.State Sen. Bruce Caswell wants the government to pay only for used clothes, insisting that the retreads of thrift shops are just fine for children who already have lost their homes and the parents who were supposed to love them.

$70 million+ cut in Medicaid reimbursement for nursing homes and specialty hospitals

To the Editor:
Could a $70 million+ cut in Medicaid reimbursement for nursing homes and specialty hospitals endanger our most vulnerable citizens? Could it create nursing home nightmares?
The proposed cuts in the State Budget could threaten the quality of care for many seniors who do not have options other than nursing home care. The State ought to do more to provide home- and community-based care options, but until it does, we need high-quality nursing home care firmly in place.
During an AARP “teletown hall” on April 20th, AARP asked Governor Christie to review the proposed budget cuts and possibly restore some of the funding. The Governor gave an affirmative response and stated his shared concern regarding quality of care. That’s good news. AARP trust he will to do his best to protect our most vulnerable citizens.
Cuts to nursing facilities could easily result in personnel layoffs, and for vulnerable people in nursing homes, this could be dangerous. Less is definitely NOT more when it comes to nursing care!

The Melting Pot Of Westwood Offers A Limited Time Food Tour Of Latin America

Melting Pot Westwood

One might call this warm and friendly restaurant a melding pot of good flavors. Not only was the presentation tasteful and tasty, when we left, there was a rainbow in the sky, a fitting way of departing after a delicious meal. Co-publisher Sophie Stone and I visited the Pot and were embraced by General Manager Tara Lynn Masterson. Tara seems to know many of her patrons by first name.
