Since I might be busy around midnight...

Happy and healthy 2004 to everyone.

I solemnly resolve to blog more consistently in 2004. I guess that was my warning to the blogosphere.

Breastfeeding Ad Scandal

HipMama provides a detailed report on the scandal involving the AAP leadership succumbing to infant formula lobbyists which has apparently halted the launch of new DHHS pro-Breastfeeding campaign. I read rumors about this problem on several mommy message boards, but this is the most concrete look at the scandal that I've seen.

What I find most appalling is the idea that the new president approved this letter without even consulting his organization breastfeeding experts. I can't really imagine that an Emergency Room Pediatrician needs to know a lot about breastfeeding in his daily job.

The author of the HipMama article, Kate Ellison Granju, has her own blog. And she updates it much more frequently than your friendly mommies at law. She follows up her HipMama piece with more information and links about "hard science behind the new risk-based approach to breastfeeding promotion" here.

(This Scandal--the breastfeeding ad not our glaring lack of posts--received a lot of attention thanks to Instapundit)

Guess what, mommiesesq1?!?!?

Today at my CLE on Ethics, Professionalism, and Substance Abuse, we got a case study of a certain juvenile court judge who was suspended for six months. The presentation was by the Chief Disciplinary Counsel of Ohio. Interesting information.
Now I'm off to find posts of real substance!
Well, aside from the general daycare sickies that seem to keep my baby boy down, things here are going pretty well.

I have almost all my Christmas shopping done.

I have my Christmas cards sent out.

The Christmas tree is up and the house is decorated.

Now all I have to do is my baking, wrapping, and office party planning.

Whew...I'm tired just reading all that.
