    Superwoman to do this while being very pregnant with twins, and living in a trailer.

    Yes, quite the accomplishment. A friend of mine gave birth to her first child three weeks before the end of her master’s program in social work. I babysat a lot. Great fun for me, a grind for her. Once it’s done, though, it is Done!

    My niece did the same thing, becoming an MD while in the Air Force and having twins.
    She was a very busy woman.

    Read the article from yesterday. Thank you. It was quite good.

    I like Alex’s external restraint even though she’s whooping it up inside. And I am sure Leo will celebrate her achievement with great enthusiasm. He’s her biggest supporter. And she is his. As odd a couple as they are, I love how they click.

    Doctor Doonesbury? Is that how she’s going to be known professionally? If so, in real life this marriage would be doomed long term.

    I am married to an MD. People who are not family members call him Dr. My oldest brother has a PHD and never wants anyone to call him Dr. except at the university. He has a girlfriend who also has a PHD and never wants anyone to call her Dr. either, unless it is at the university. After the newness of having a doctorate has passed, they tend to not go by the name Dr. except at work. My bro always says that he doesn’t want to give anyone the wrong impression, as he can’t cure anything.

    I guess I spoke to soon about the Refresh Comments bar yesterday.

    There is still an issue with duplication, possibly due to a change in placement of the Refresh Comments bar.

    You obviously forgot that she has already interviewed with DARPA and heaven knows spending at the Pentagon is not going down enough to cut jobs. Even new ones.

    I just read the article, also. Very interesting. I have often considered the Founding Fathers to be elitest. They were also prejudiced against blacks and the poor. The original constitution only allowed wealthy white landowners the right vote. vhh
