Colorado killer's psychiatrist 'was disciplined for prescribing herself Xanax, her husband Ambien an

Dr Lynne Fenton was counselling James Holmes before the horrific murders took place
More details have emerged about the psychiatrist who was said to be treating Batman killer James Holmes before he allegedly opened fire on a Colorado movie theater killing 12 people and injuring 58.

Dr Lynne Fenton - who is said to specialize in schizophrenia and 'threat assessment' - may become the subject of a number of lawsuits if it emerges she could have prevented the massacre.

Her job as part of the 'threat assessment' team is to alert authorities if any student is considered dangerous or violent.
Holmes sent a notebook to Dr Fenton before the shooting which was allegedly filled with details and drawings of how he was planning to 'kill people'.

Romney least liked candidate in recent history? Polling numbers say no

You might think by some of the headlines that Mitt Romney is viewed less favorably by Americans than Kristen Stewart. Indeed, much has been made about how Romney is the least likeable Republican nominee in the "modern era". But just how unpopular is Mitt Romney? The answer – it turns out – is actually far more murky than you might think.

Mitt Romney has a net favorable (favorable - unfavorable) rating anywhere from -9 to +12 depending on which July poll you examine.

Boy Scouts decides to keep ban on gay boys

Source: Kansas City Star

After what it called a two-year-long examination of its policies, the Boy Scouts of America has ruled: Gay boys are still banned from Scouting.

The decision, announced Tuesday, comes just two days after a Kansas City area Eagle Scout made national headlines for being removed from a leadership position at a Boy Scout camp near St. Joseph after revealing to his camp director that he is gay.

“It breaks my heart,” Scout Eric Jones, 19, said of the organization’s announcement Tuesday. “This is an organization that helps boys out. Telling them they can’t be who they are is wrong.”

Scouting’s announcement said the decision came after two years of consideration by an 11-person committee that had been asked to consider a resolution requesting the organization reconsider its longstanding membership policy. The committee included individuals inside and outside Boy Scouts, a statement said, and considered “a diversity of perspectives and opinions.”

What great things do you think Obama will do after he wins his last election?

I really think he will push Medicare for all.

I've been working at a new job for 9 weeks and tonight

I've just witnessed a third person getting fired. These were nurses with small children and families to take care of. For each firing it happened all the same - they came into work their shift and before they could clock in the Admin Nurse said I need to talk to you and the next thing you see is her walking them out the door. And for what? I do not know - no one talks about it. I have never seen so much incivility from a nurse admin in all my years, and I'm 59. I come home from work and I can't open the wine bottle fast enough. (No I'm not a heavy drinker). I took off a year and half and moved to England after my partner died and this is what I came back to. Is this a precedent?
