shame on The View! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"><br><br>
Is there an ABC site where one could email to express their dismay?

Yeah I noticed the thread in the BF forum AFTER I posted here.<br><br>
Still I think a write in for those who can't make it might help too! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

I emailed Star Jones not too long ago about her BS promoting formula and said she is an idiot for being so rude publicly to nursing moms. And Elisabeth is worse pooping on LLL..........And Baba Wawa is the worst saying NIp is gross. SHE is gross..... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eyesroll.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="roll"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">

Man I wish I could go... but it's too far away. I was thinking if a group of mamas got tickets to the same show and then showed up with a bunch of babes in slings to sit in the audience it would be a hoot. Even if they didn't let us in after all, we could cause a scene. But I really couldn't make the trip right now.<br><br>
I'll be getting an email ready to send off shortly...

Maybe that's a tad harsh to the many adoptive moms at MDC and adoptive moms in general.

Yeah, that's pretty weak. You can be pro-nursing without making comments like these. Glad it has you roflo.<br><br>
