How Do We Protect Our Genes in Light of the Supreme Court Patent Ruling? The Dooley Way.

How Do We Protect Our Genes in Light of the Supreme Court Patent Ruling?  The Dooley Way.

Today the Supreme Court dealt a terrible blow to our rights to patent our genes.  While the news services focus on how this might impact medicine and the biotech industry, few seem to realize, as my husband Steve and I do, just how will soon affect the special families such as ours.  How can we protect the superiority of our genes when just anybody can come along and use them to do whatever they want? As … Read entire article »

Western Estate’s Adopt-the-Unfortunate Program

Western Estate’s Adopt-the-Unfortunate Program

You can hardly turn on the television these days without seeing the less fortunate paraded around to drum up funds for this or that charity.  Hungry children, lonely old people, grief stricken mothers, homeless cats and dogs, the list goes on.  But sending money is so last year.  A lot of those people got into trouble because of their poor choices, so giving them money or food or shelter won’t help anything.  That’s why my … Read entire article »

Make College Students Prove Citizenship

Make College Students Prove Citizenship

My little boy Seth is all grown up and heading off to college next year, so our family just got back from spending his spring break touring some of the college campuses within our home state of California.  One thing that surprised my husband, Steve, and I as we went from campus to campus was how many people didn’t quite look like us.  Now, we’re not racist, we love people of every color, but it … Read entire article »

No Tsunami Dogs in the USA

If you love dogs like we do, then it’s time we put our foot down.  While we feel deeply for the plight of the abandoned dogs in Japan following the devastating earthquake and tsunami, we can’t let our own dogs suffer as a result.  We must immediately ban the importation of dogs from Japan and prevent our kennel clubs from recognizing future radiation-created mutant dog breeds.  The Japanese are well known for their love of … Read entire article »

Let’s All Help the Japs!

Let’s All Help the Japs!

I think as parents we all hope that our children will one day prove that our investment of time and energy wasn’t wasted, that they will show the capacity to give back, to make a difference, to take over for us, keeping the world beautiful, and safe, and full of the right sort of ideals and people.  For one of my boys, Seth, that day came yesterday. We were all saddened by what was going on … Read entire article »

Don’t Let Japan Happen to You!

Don’t Let Japan Happen to You!

We all watched in horror as the tragedy unfolded in Japan, as wave upon wave crashed against the tiny little buildings with all those tiny little people I wept, and collapsed into my husband’s, Steve’s, powerful arms. I didn’t want the same thing to happen to my 8,000 square foot home, to my beautiful Pebble Tec pool and patio area, to my beautiful  to my boys, to my husband, or to me.  So … Read entire article »
