      It is a curiosity for some…a religious sign for others and a medical concern for those who know of such matters.  A baby was born with two faces, approximately a month ago, in India to a poor farming family.

       Those in the medical field want to do medical testing on the child to see how healthy she is and whether she needs medical attention.  The family forbids it…that is their right.  The child appears to be doing well as far as eating and such.  But there is concern about how the child is formed inside whether she will live a long healthy life. 

       The family of the two faced baby believe as do others in their culture; that she is a reincarnation of a Hindu goddess of power.  Everyone is entitled to their beliefs and as her parents they are within their rights to forbid medical intervention.  They say that she is not suffering and that she is eating with both of her mouths and she blinks all four eyes.  Still, in America she would be considered a special needs child and every avenue would be explored to find the best treatments available for this baby.

        You have to wonder about her future.  When she is able to walk; how will she hold up her head?  Will her brain (brains) struggle for control of the rest of her body?  I hope that she is well and lives healthily…but, with people in her culture worshipping her; even if she survives infanthood, it will be very difficult emotionally to be so very different from everyone else.

        My Christian beliefs cause me to flinch when i hear that this child is being worshipped and that she is perceived as a goddess.  God’s word (the Holy Bible) says that we may have no other god’s before him.    May God have mercy on them as they struggle to deal with the challenges ahead.

       Reportedly, Britney Spear’s family has alledged in court documents, that Britney’s svengali of  recent times, manager Sam Lutfi has drugged her and threatened both her and her family with violence.  Some of the alledged things that have been said,  have such open contempt in them that it is nothing less than malicious in an attempt to destroy Britney’s whole world.

        It sounds as if there must be some type of proof as the allegations have been submitted to the court and the court has  issued a temporary restraining order against him regarding contact with Britney and her home.  Without proof, a person submitting to the court false allegations would be held accountable.

        There have also been reports that Britney’s home has been burgularized.  All of these things all rolled into one huge circus; is it any wonder why Britney has been so very out of control of late?  Maybe alot of it has been without her knowledge or consent.  It is like something out of a soap opera…too wild to even contemplate.

        With all of the rumors of the media being notified of Britney’s comings and goings; even before they happened over the last few months…a sane person would wonder who would notify the media when it was so obviously not always something Britney wanted in her life.

        Maybe someone with an ulterior motive for all of the press coverage and a need to be seen in the public eye on the arm of one of the most infamous women of our time.  A woman in need of someone to control her environment and to keep her in  desperate, constant need.   Does this whole situation bring to mind another very famous woman; a woman who also lived in a state of upheaval until she was destroyed…Marilyn Monroe. 

        It will be up to the court and the medical profession to put all of the pieces of the puzzle together to get to the bottom of this cesspool.  Maybe, just maybe, the medical intervention will have happened in the nick of time to prevent even more diaster in the lives of Ms. Spears and her family.  If any of it is true , then it is more than sad, it is evil.

      A Detroit 911 Operator was found guilty of  a “willful neglect of duty” .  She could spend up to a year in jail when sentenced in March.  No other operator in our country, from what i understand, has been charged with a crime regarding how they have handled emergency calls except in this case.  There was one other operator that was charged in this case but that case was dismissed.

        This case is about a call from a 5 year old child calling to say that his mother passed out.  The call came in at almost 6 o’clock one night in February of last year.  The operator testified that she could not hear the child and thought it was a prank…however, she told him she sending the police to check up on him.  She didn’t really do that.  So the young child waited and waited.
