  1. Health care... or not

    I've been watching a sort of retrospective of Little People, Big World and something really bothers me. In one show, they have to take one of their sons (a dwarf) in for health care, and the father mentions that they can't get insurance because dwarfism is a "pre-existing condition". WTF?...

  3. Thumbs up My Self Determination Program

    I know Marie has told you she works with me, so I thought I would explain the program I am in that allows me to do this. It is called Self Determination.

Scientists have discovered a gene that plays a crucial role in the male hair loss on the X chromosome. Men always inherit the X chromosome from their mothers, while...
