In the process of being evaluated to be a donor, it was discovered that I have Kidney disease (polycystic Kidneys) and cannot donate. My wife's blood type does not match. Our other daughter is too young to donate.
Linda's blood type is "O." We are looking for a doner with "O" blood type. If your type "O," other blood tests need to be performed to see if your a match.
If you think you can help out, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If your unable to be a donor, but know someone that might be, I would appreciate if you could pass this information along.
Thank you very much for caring.

Nancy Willard, M.S., J.D., who is the director of the Center for Safe and Responsible Internet Use recently wrote an article on sexting which lawyers and researchers may find of great interest. A pdf version of this article, which spans 23 pages is available here. The article's introduction provides:
The term “sexting” is a combination of two terms “text” and “sex.” The term is being applied to
situations to sending self-created nude or semi-nude sexually provocative images or sexually
explicit text. Most of the focus has been on sending nude images - because these are far more
likely to be more widely disseminated and because the distribution of these images can place
young people at higher risk.2
This document will outline the research findings about this phenomena, discuss the concerns
about current degree of overreaction, address legal issues, and provide recommendations for
changes in criminal statutes and for the establishment of an effective multidisciplinary approach
to investigate and intervene in these situations.

Elementary student in Arkansas vows to refuse to recite Pledge until gays and lesbians attain equal rights
An elementary school student told CNN during an interview that America isn't following the meaning or spirit behind the Pledge of Allegiance, and had decided he won't say the Pledge until gays and lesbians are given the same rights as everyone else. According to Will Phillips, the last line in the Pledge says 'with liberty and justice for all.' But Will says that line is not being applied to people in the gay and lesbian community because they do not enjoy the same rights or liberties as people who are not gay. Will says he has endured taunting and name-calling from fellow students, but he's determined to stand by his First Amendment right to free speech.
