As it turns out, there isn't. So she sat in the middle seat of our van.
Doesn't it seem ludicrous that a girl would have to call the health department to department to find out if she can sit in the front seat. Isn't that government overreach? Shouldn't she just be able to ask her parents, who could then make a decision? I find this to be weird.

By the way, Fr. Barron is great. If you don't know his work see his website, Word on Fire.
- The beautiful snow
- Sleeping in until 7:00
- The Latin language
- The Word of God
- Our seven children
- Our house and yard
- The old 1980s journal of mine that my wife found in the garage yesterday
- My morning cup of coffee
- My twenty minute walk to work in the woods
Some of these I will repeat day after day; others will be different each day.

Dear Dr. Gotcher,
I noticed your blog comment this morning. Please check out our website: ttp://bioethics.georgetown.edu We have more than 230,000 citations in a bibliographic database, many with links to full text. We are adding about 12,000 items a year. However, our library was established in 1973, so we don't have very many books that precede that date. You may want to simply enter: catholic* into the Basic Search box for ETHX on the Web to get an idea of what we have. The most recent items appear first. You can narrow your search with other concepts, classification numbers, etc. In addition, you may want to request a custom search through that free service.

You can say, "I have an obligation," and "I have a duty," but you can't say, "He did his obligation" in the same way you can say, "He did his duty." What you would say is, "He fulfilled his obligation."
Do they mean the same thing?
