Jamie Lynn Grumet, the 26-year-old mother featured on the cover of Time magazine breastfeeding her 3-year-old son, has done more this week than become the poster woman for “attachment parenting,” the sometimes laudable movement that advises parents to be physically and emotionally available and responsive to their children. She has shown the limits of such a concept, and the ways in which it can be twisted into a bizarre, contemptible caricature of itself.
Grumet is a model, and models have to have at least healthy dose of narcissism (television journalists like me, too, by the way). But I fear Grumet has more than what’s healthy.
Because she thought nothing of becoming far more famous than she ever was or ever would have been by getting naked on the cover of Time using her son as a prop—letting him, in fact, look right into the camera and be completely recognizable while sucking her nipple. He may never be better-known for anything than for being a breastfeeding 3-year-old on the cover of a national magazine. Ever.

(CNSNews.com) – Appearing on NBC on Sunday, Vice President Joe Biden applauded an NBC entertainment program he believes helped change American culture by moving the country toward acceptance of same-sex marriage.
“My measure, David, and I take a look at when things really begin to change, is when the social culture changes,” Biden told NBC’s “Meet the Press” host David Gregory. “I think ‘Will & Grace’ probably did more to educate the American public than almost anything anybody’s ever done so far.”
“Will and Grace” was a sitcom aired by NBC from 1998 through 2006. It featured a main character who was homosexual.
Since 1998, the year “Will & Grace” premiered, voters in 30 states have approved state constitutional amendments banning same-sex marriage. In no state have voters approved a referendum legalizing same-sex marriage.
