Crazy on the Today Show...

On the Today show this morning they had two stories that shocked me. I tried to find both stories on their website but they might not be posted yet.

1. A student at John Hopkins University saw an intruder breaking into his home and yelled for his roommates. He picked up a sword and swung at the robber cutting his hand off and the robber ended up bleeding to death. Now they are thinking about pressing charges against the student. This just amazes me that for protecting yourself and your home they would even think about prosecuting someone. I understand the fact that you can not defend yourself if the intruders back is to you but if someone was breaking into my house, be sure that I would try and hurt them. We will see how this story ends.Sword Killing on Today

2. A man and woman were trying to have a child and ended up trying IVF. They ended up finding out that they had the wrong eggs placed in her, so the child she is carrying is not her own. How devastating to know that you have been trying to get pregnant and now you are carrying someone else's child. I never saw the end of this story so as soon as I can find it I will post more info about it.

I love watching the news, not as much as the husband but sometimes I just get so frustrated. It always seems as though good things happen to bad people and bad things happen to good people. Maybe I should start being bad? What do you think?


  1. I had heard about the sword story, but had no idea they were thinking about pressing charges. Who protects our rights if we don't? The IVF story is awful. I can't even imagine. So does that mean someone else is carrying her baby? Or they just made the mistake with her? I definitely think in today's society, no news is good news. Hope you had a wonderful weekend!

  2. I cannot believe that IVF story. I have been diagnosed with PCOS so I know that getting pregnant when that time comes is going to be difficult, most likely. I cannot imagine going through all of that emotionally, physically, and financially only to find out it is not your child. That could be a huge lawsuit!
