i think it's the son and his wife who are pg with another baby, i'm sure there's facts somewhere to support this.

That was really big. When I was listening to the news, they were still debating what his statement meant for condoms in Africa. Have they officially been approved? I mean, are Catholic agencies allowed to give out condoms now?

I think you're right, but they are still Duggars. And since she's like 19 or 20 (?), I think Lois is right. Lots more Duggar babies over the next half a century at least.

I think the chilean miners story was so amazing, so riveting and could have had such a horrible ending that it truly captured the world's attention. The uplifting ending was a remedy to the utter despair we all felt watching that oil spill into the gulf.

Well on the bright side of things, the states with which I identify most keenly (the state of my birth, Illinois; my state of residency, Maryland) are poised to make me very happy this year.

Illinois has already passed a same sex marriage law and it will take effect in 2011.

And the Illinois law was made all the sweeter when Illinois State Senator Ricky Hendon, a staunch conservative Christian, had this to say on the Floor: (click here)

Yes, EGD, the son and his wife are expecting anoother baby. The son is a Duggar. The baby will be another Duggar. There will be new Duggars every year the whole rest of our lives.
