Congratulations, It's A Boomlet!

ATLANTA (AP) - Bucking the trend in many other wealthy industrialized nations, the United States seems to be experiencing a baby boomlet, reporting the largest number of children born in 45 years.

An American baby boomlet is good news. It means Americans are, overall, optimistic about the future.

But why would the AP call someone from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for comment? Since when is pregnancy considered a disease? Except by these people.

Which reminds me...

Saw the film "Juno" this past weekend. It's the feel-good teen pregnancy hit of the year. Very clever, very funny, very hip and even touching. But if you can find it, "The Snapper" is even better.

Nope. That's what they call a baby in Ireland.
