  1. The way I understand this, children of paternity have more rights then of divorced children? Also, to set the record straight, not all divorced mommys "gets a bunch of extras and tax breaks....all the while having the state pay her insurance and housing...she is not held accountable for her share of supporting the child...the taxpayers are covering her share" And who said the divorced mom does not have to help pay college expenses? Yes, if you are married then as married parents get to decide if they wish to pay for their child's college expenses but you lose that decision when you get divorced. I would like to know what politician thinks that once a child turns 19 years old that they no longer need to eat! It is disturbing to me that any parent, mother or father, does not want to help their children get their college education!

  2. The sad thing is that no fish were thrown overboard The "greenhorn" who had never fished before those 5 days was interrogated for over 4 hours by 5 officers until his statement was illicited, "I don't want to go to prison....." The truth is that these fish were measured frozen off shore and thawed on shore. The FWC (state) officer did not know fish shrink, so the only reason that these fish could be bigger was a swap. There is no difference between a 19 1/2 fish or 19 3/4 fish, short fish is short fish, the ticket was written. In addition the FWC officer testified at trial, he does not measure fish in accordance with federal law. There was a document prepared by the FWC expert that said yes, fish shrink and if these had been measured correctly they averaged over 20 inches (offshore frozen). This was a smoke and mirror prosecution.

  3. It would be hard not to feel the Kramers' anguish. But Catholic Charities, by definition, performed due diligence and held to the statutory standard of care. No good can come from punishing them for doing their duty. Should Indiana wish to change its laws regarding adoption agreements and or putative fathers, the place for that is the legislature and can only apply to future cases. We do not apply new laws to past actions, as the Kramers seem intent on doing, to no helpful end.
