trancendental tuition

I finally decided to make good on a long standing resolution to learn how to meditate. transcendental Meditation, I wa told, was among the best programs to learn from. I found a TM franchise nearby, and attended a free intro class. After a long boring lecture and no actual meditation, in which the lecturer showed study after study showing how TM cures everything including ingrown toe nials, she drops the karma bomb: $2500 "tuition" for the course. My questions: Is TM really superior? Has it really become the peaceful tonic of the upper classes? Is TM really superior to other forms of meditation? Does TM always have to be so expensive? Can it be learned from a book instead of avaristic new age meditation moguls?

Adolescent Circumcision

Deeply conflicted, the circumcision we'd reluctantly decided upon was rescheduled until his seventh day.

We turned around and never looked back, until . . . [more inside]

How long for a broken toe to mend?

About three weeks ago I broke my big toe and the doctor said there's not much you can do with it, just let it heal on its own. But how long will this take? I use a treadmill most evenings as part of my daily routine and want to know when I can start back again - should I start just walking for a while before getting back up to speed? What is the healing time for a broken toe to get back to "normal"?
