But to answer your question, I think his mistake was DUI and leaving the scene of an accident, not getting 911. I don't think that counts as murder (though I completely agree that he should have faced charges). [ Reply | More ]

He WAS charged with several crimes, but it wasn't murder. It took place back during the first moon landing, before the MADD movement got DUI to be a regular thing. So then never really looked at whether he was drunk at the time. He turned himself in to police about 10 hours after the Cappaquiddick crash that killed the girl he was with. He was charged with negligence and other crimes, but plead guilty to the main charge of leaving the scene of an accident. Because of who he was, he received a suspended sentence and didn't serve any time. But it kept him from ever running for President, like his brothers had done. [ Reply | More ]

Well, first off, he didn't murder anyone. He was in a terrible car accident and the car went into the water. He didn't save, or even perhaps try to save the female passenger. That isn't murder and wasn't a crime at all. The crime was leaving the scene of an accident, and presumably DUI. [ Reply | More ]

It seems like it was a terrible and life-altering accident, not something intentional. Just like Laura Bush driving (drunk?) and running a stoplight and killing her 17yo friend.

I find it really weird but apparently that is what the other kids want to do too as they are all doing it. If I cut off video games during the week (which I am considering doing because I think he is addicted) is it going to be a problem for him socially (if so I may just do a time limit).

My kids are a junior and a senior in high school and they will occasionally go out on the weekends with a friend or with a group but it's not odd at all that sometimes they literally stay home all weekend... They see their friends all day it's not like when we were kids and you stayed on the phone all night it's really no different than that.

I think when they're younger, say under 10 or 11 years old it is definitely different. But once they get into heavy duty homework and after-school activities and they have smart phones and laptops or tablets of their own, in person hanging out with friends takes a few notches down. It's kind of cool, sometimes I'll go upstairs at 8 or 9 on a Saturday night and both of my kids are in one bedroom with one of the laptops and they have four or five friends each on like a whole group chat video style it's kind of amazing.

op - that's a good question, I don't have an answer for that. Maybe some of the MD moms can chime in on that? I think maybe it differs by person. I've read a number of health books, and many of them seem to give varying recommendations. I do 30 minutes of cardio in the morning, an hour of strength conditioning at night, lots of walking everywhere during the day, and also an hour of yoga every day. I used to do daily barre classes too, but now I do yoga instead. I'm not sure if this is too much. Maybe what is ideal for the muscles is not ideal for the joints? Or maybe what is ideal for heart health would be running for 4 hours a day but that would be taxing on the endocrine system? I really don't know, but I would be interested in learning more about the precise definition of the right amount of exercise as well. I recently added the book "Disease Proof" by David Katz MD to my reading list, so I plan to read that soon, and I am hoping that book may shed some light on this question. Apparently it's one of the best books out there on health in terms of research rigor, so my expectations are high. I'll post about it on here when I start reading it, and we can discuss if you want. :) [ Reply | More ]

I was not a virgin when I married, no. And I've never had an STD. Neither has DH. I avoided condoms by not having sex with strangers I didn't know? Is this really so strange to you? I'm not trying to judge you or slut shame or anything, since I think women should be free to do as they please but I'm sort of shocked you think my situation is so rare. Personally I find the idea of having sex with someone I'm not in a loving committed relationship with to be disgusting from my own preferences in that I would not even be able to be turned on by that since I would be too worried about the health consequences. With both of my boyfriends prior to DH I was in a long term monogamous live together relationship. One in college and the other a few years later. DH was the same in that both his prior girlfriends before me were monogamous relationships, the first one in college and the second one in grad school. My first boyfriend and I were both virgins when we met. With second boyfriend and with DH we both provided one another with paper work and health forms showing proof of no STDs since we were not virgins and since that seems like the smart thing to do to ensure one's health. I can't even imagine wanting to have sex with someone who I was not 100% certain did not have an STD and who wasn't 100% in love with me. I know people who have casual sex, and I wouldn't try to stop them or anything, but frankly every woman I know who does that is deeply unhappy and longs to be in a loving relationship. The human brain releases oxytocin at orgasm and is built to attach to the other person during sex so the whole notion of casual sex is sort of a delusion with the goal of trying to turn off empathy, which I think is maladaptive to a healthy mindset and healthy life. I would hope my future daughters (and sons) act in a similar manner to me and to DH and only have sex with partners who truly love them. Can you explain what is appealing about having sex with someone who you don't love or who doesn't love you? Wouldn't that just be awkward? And how do you know they wouldn't rape you? Seems both dangerous to health and potentially dangerous to safety as well. [ Reply | More ]

Also, Why do you think some people are interested in casual sex and others are no? What leads someone to have an aversion to casual sex? Maybe a high standard of trust? Or health conscientiousness? Or something else? Idk. I've also never been able to masturbate, and I'm genuinely confused how other so many women do this. To me the idea of being like "well hello ME, you're looking sexy today, let's fuck." "oh Me, you always know just what to say to get me all worked up, don't you!" just seems so strange. To me the the whole appeal of sex is the connection with your partner, like a physical extension of the communication of saying you love them verbally or with gestures or gifts or acts of service. It's another way to communicate love. Not that it's the primary way or only way, but it's one way. So the idea of having sex with myself just seems like talking to myself and being like "Hi self. Who's a good girl. YOU are, YOU are!" Can anyone give me the flip side perspective of this? [ Reply | More ]

I know, I feel guilty for that sometimes but there just isn't a lot for me to do. I'm a project manager so most of my time is spent waiting for other teams to complete their work, people to get back to me, etc. I can only send so many follow ups, schedule so many meetings, etc. in a day.

And then moderators come in and close down threads JUST when they start getting interesting. Case in point, a moratorium on all threads about Georgetown Prep. [ Reply | More ]
