Carolyn Hax: Parenting is a sacred responsibility
I’m getting ready to pick a donor for my pursuit of single motherhood and I’m toying with the idea of a Sperm Picking Party. I would screen a list of potential donors and then close friends and family would come over, drink a bunch of wine and narrow us down to the winner.

This exposition of wave-particle duality comes just in time. At this writing, I have been anticipating including a discussion of the same in “Embracing what is.” In short — and the author’s questions here seem to be exactly the same as mine — at the subatomic level, the observer and the thing observed become inseparable.
