WELL, AFTER THE TRIG PALIN ASSAULTS, GOING AFTER A STILLBORN BABY ISN’T MUCH OF A STRETCH: The Casual Cruelty of Eugene Robinson. Remember this the next time they launch one of their bogus “new civility” campaigns.

UPDATE: Reader Paul Jackson writes: “5th day of the year and we’ve already heard the stupidest comment of 2012? Statistically highly unlikely. What does that say for what the rest of 2012 holds? I shudder at the thought.”

ANOTHER UPDATE: Reader Kenneth Lightcap writes: “As a pastor I have been called to bring comfort to families that have lost children to stillbirth. The ‘Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep’ organization has a national network of local photographers who are comfortable in taking photographs of stillborn babies. I checked their website for my mid western city and found fifteen photographers listed. I will tell you from pastoral experience that those photographs and the time spent with the deceased child bring enormous comfort to the grieving families. It is such an improvement over the way such things were handled in the past. Gene Robinson, meh.”

Meanwhile, reader Tracy Morris writes: “The Santorum’s child lived for 2 hours, he wasn’t stillborn. A stillborn is a child who is born after 20 weeks gestation with no heartbeat. It’s a small thing, but it does matter to the parents.” I stand corrected.
