Breastfeeding photo makes waves for Time

NEW YORK (AP) -- A woman breastfeeding her 3-year-old son is the cover photo of this week's Time magazine for a story on "attachment parenting."

The photo showed Jamie Lynne Grumet, 26, a stay-at-home mom.

"People have to realize this is biologically normal," she said, adding, "The more people see it, the more it'll become normal in our culture."

The issue includes a profile of the attachment parenting guru, Dr. Bill Sears.

Mika Brzezisnki, co-host of MSNBC's "Morning Joe," suggested it was needlessly sensational: "I'll tell you why it bothers me -- because it's a profile of Bill Sears!" Time Managing Editor Rick Stengel acknowledged the image is "provocative."


Panel backs removal of ticket-fixing judge

ALBANY (AP) -- The New York Commission on Judicial Conduct has recommended removing a Rensselaer County town justice from the bench for her involvement in two ticket-fixing cases.

In a decision released Thursday, the commission said East Greenbush Town Justice Diane Schilling improperly intervened in the disposition of a speeding ticket issued to the wife of another town judge in 2009. Four years earlier, the commission said she returned her own speeding ticket to a state trooper who said he would void it.
