Nursing Moms Hold Nurse- In At Target Then Shops At Walmart

December 29, 2011

Nursing moms upset with breastfeeding preferences at Target  stores staged a “nurse-in” Wednesday at locations in Chicago and across the  country.

Local moms say the demonstration is meant to raise awareness  about controversies over nursing in public. This latest outcry, they say, stems  from a recent incident in Texas.

Michelle Hickman, a Houston mother of four, apparently was  nursing in a remote area of a Target store when staffers told her to move into a  fitting room. There were so many employees confronting her, she said, that it  was time to speak up.

“Basically I got harassed by a whole handful of women  Target employees,” she said.

The  “nurse-in” lasted about a half hour at which time they left to shop at Walmart.

Michelle Obama Eats Swordfish Sliders and Cheroula Marinade Getting Off Target For Campaign Re-Election

November 30, 2011

First lady Michelle Obama enjoyed a lovely evening at Co  Co. Sala on F Street on Monday night. A Yeas & Nays source tells us she  dined with seven friends for dinner and, of course, dessert — which featured an  edible chocolate sculpture and house-made artisanal chocolates by Chef Santosh  Tiptur. We’re told Obama’s favorite savory was Chef Tiptur’s Moroccan Swordfish  Sliders with chermoula marinade, fennel salad, aged pecorino and hazelnut coffee  dressing. The restaurant owners later posted to Twitter about their excitement  of having her as a guest. “It was such an honor to have first lady Michelle  Obama dine at Co Co. Sala last night. What an exciting and humbling experience!”
