Michael: I Bet That's Was a Telegenic Rally

Nursing moms are set to win the right to breastfeed in public. Recently, mothers rallied around a woman who was harrassed for feeding her child in public in Chandler, and won passage of only the second municipal law in the nation allowing a woman to breastfeed in public. Similar exceptions to public indecency laws are under consideration by the Tucson city council (there's an issue for the campaign...) and by the state legislature.

I'm all in favor of laws allowing a woman to be a woman without exposing herself to legal harrassment. I only hope that it leads to more serious consideration of the government's role in ensuring the health, welfare, and education of those children once they are weaned. With Arizona bringing up there rear on many metrics of child welfare, we need real leadership and focus on on issues of concern to parents - regardless of whether they have mamaries and intend to use them.
