Response to Berlin's CHIP and Medicade

I also agree with Berlin. There is no reason why there are families out there that qualify for government support and do not take advantage of it. There is no excuse for there to be families that have no idea about the programs. It is the responsibility of the government to do everything within there power to educate families on the programs available to them. We live in a time now where we are very technologically advanced which makes it easy to communicate and inform people even over large areas. It is sad for the government to use an excuse such as Texas is very large so it makes it hard to inform everyone.

Response to "Woman to be extradited to US to face charges; parents of victum clash on punishment for crime."

When I started to read the article I thought it was going to be about a parent that did not want to prosecute the person who accidentally killed daughter in a drunk driving accident. At first it seemed like it was going to be a touching story about two parents who found it themselves to forgive the woman possible. I thought it was really neat because you would think the girl would realize the magnitude of what she did and would change her lifestyle or at least make better choices. It is now evident that her life is the same which is shown on her myspace page which has a picture of the girl drinking and a quote that says "Life's too short... so live it up". I agree with Elyssa and believe that the government should do everything within their power to bring the girl to justice.
