Change custody laws sooner, not later
Thursday, June 22, 2000, Mindelle Jacobs, Edmonton Sun
Normally a feminist, showing how a judge decides to destroy a child's life in divorce by leaving the child with an incompetant mother. Who judges these judges for how THEY abuse these children. It would be in the best interests of this child if this judge would take a long walk off a short pier.

Hostage situation at Disney hotel
Friday, June 30, 2000, Pamela J. Johnson, The Orlando Sentinel

Monday, June 26, 2000, Tracy McLaughlin, The Globe and Mail
A man who knows he has lost all hope, his children, his farm to to the lawyers and legislators doesn't have a reason? As long as the law stays like this, divorced men will have a suicide rate of about 16 times of women -- and likely much higher in the intervening period. These deaths brought to you courtesy of your local family court judges, the lawyers who feed off the system, and the legislators who just don't care.

Itchy trigger fingers
Friday, June 23, 2000, Christie Blatchford, National Post

What if Father's Day were eliminated for a few years?
Sunday, June 18, 2000, Kathleen Parker, The Orlando Sentinel

Tuesday, June 13, 2000, Peter Hum, The Ottawa Citizen

"A whole set of ideas are being met with fierce opposition within the negotiating bloc of the developing world called the Group of 77, or G-77."'
