From The New York Times By Kim Severson A WEEK’S worth of dinners for young Fiona Jacobson looks like this: Noodles. Noodles. Noodles. Noodles. French fries. Noodles. On the seventh day, the 5-year-old from Forest Hills, Queens, might indulge in a piece of pizza crust, with no sauce or cheese. Over in New Jersey, the Bakers changed their November family vacation to accommodate Sasha, an 11-year-old so averse to fruits and vegetables that the smell of orange juice once made him faint. Instead of flying to Prague, Sasha’s parents decided to go to Barcelona, where they hope the food will be more to his liking. Tango’s Take
From The Brisbane Times By Tamara McLean Circumcision may offer gay men some protection from the sexually transmitted infection syphilis, but researchers are not recommending men get the snip. As new figures revealed a surge in syphilis rates, a study by Sydney scientists has found that rates of the disease are higher among men who have not had the procedure. Circumcision did not appear to offer any protection from other sexually transmitted infections like HIV, gonorrhoea, chlamydia or genital warts. Tango’s Take
InTouch Weekly is reporting that Pamela Anderson and Rick Salomon may have had a little bit of a push to get married. Namely a baby that they created in Pam’s belly. We suppose that it is not terribly surprising. They had a bit of a quickie set-up and execution. Something about this seems a little off though. It’s a bit much to swallow. And how aren’t any famous women on the pill? Hasn’t anyone seen Knocked Up? Though mildly unlikely, it can happen at any moment. Anderson denies having a baby growing in her womb.

We just understood Kanye West’s lyrics for the first time. We think he is saying that she’s a gold digger. It’s not just coincidence that she ain’t messing with a broke n-bomb. Since the beginning of recorded time, a large number of women just want to be taken care of and a large number of men are reasonably sure that their wealth and status will help them land their choice of hot broads. Some people even think that this ‘phenomenon’ is the cornerstone of society as we know it, so we were shocked to see someone come out and say as much. You may have been recipient of a forwarded post from Craigs List. Essentially, a brassy, 25 year-old New York gal is looking for a guy that makes over half a million per year and needs some advice.

From The Miami Herald By Lisa Leff SAN FRANCISCO --For years, rumblings have surfaced on the Internet, conjecture about her casual references to "sexual orientation" and "respect." Now, Dear Abby is ready to say it flatly: She supports same-sex marriage. "I believe if two people want to commit to each other, God bless 'em," the syndicated advice columnist told The Associated Press. "That is the highest form of commitment, for heaven's sake."

From USA Today SALEM, Ore. (AP) — Opponents of Oregon's new same-sex domestic partnership law failed to turn in enough valid signatures to block the measure, clearing the way for it to take effect next year, state elections officials said Monday. Oregon will join eight other states that have approved spousal rights in some form for gay couples — Connecticut, Vermont, New Hampshire, New Jersey, Maine, California, Washington and Hawaii. Massachusetts is the only state that allows gay couples to marry. The Oregon measure covers benefits related to inheritance rights, child-rearing and custody, joint state tax filings, joint health, auto and homeowners insurance policies, visitation rights at hospitals and others. It does not affect federal benefits for married couples, including Social Security and joint filing of federal tax returns. Tango’s Take
From The Dallas Morning News By Jake Batsell PLANO – Five couples amble into a meeting room, take their seats and anxiously eye one another as Joe Cocker's scratchy voice belts out an urgent plea: Naomi del Valle (in back) laughs as her husband, Jorge, smacks her on the legs with a soft pool toy during a Marriage Boot Camp exercise Friday. ‘Love lift us up where we belong.’ It's time for another Marriage Boot Camp at Plano Centre. Over the next four days, these couples will try everything from blindfolded dodge ball to group revelations in hopes of improving their marriages. An army of facilitators in dark suits – both men and women – will lead a regimen of intense, sometimes confrontational drills that diverge sharply from traditional marriage therapy. Tango’s Take
