There, I said it (five in a series)

I understand that video recordings of childbirth are supposed to be documenting a natural and special event, but do they really make any more sense than having a photographer in there snapping shots the whole time with a 35 mm SLR, complete with flash and zoom? How about also making a video of the child's conception—after all, who would want to watch either one besides the parents?

(This message brought to you by the flyers strewn about Capitol Hill appealing for the return of a stolen video camera which contained childbirth recordings. To the poster: I'm sorry you got ripped off, but seriously, what are you thinking? And no, I'm not a bit surprised that you invoked "karma" in your all-caps tirade.)
