((Timothy Mcveigh's mother and father came to Denver to ask the jury to spare their son from death by injection.
Now divorced from William Mcveigh, Mildred Frazier testified she couldn't believe her son could have been the bomber. "He is not the monster he has been portrayed as." "Yes, I am pleading for my son's life. I hope god helps you make the right decision." William McVeigh then took the stand and introduced a video the defense produced with him as narrator. It was a homey recollection of family life with Tim in Pendleton, New York.
Tim Mcveigh appeared to tear-up briefly but later, was seen laughing with his lawyers. Jurors who earlier in the trial had wept at the heartbreaking stories from survivors of the bombing seemed overall unmoved. RANDY RENNER/KWTV-TV: "I HAD A REALLY GOOD LOOK AT THE JURORS, THEY HAD SOME VERY STERN LOOKS ON THEIR FACES.
Tim McVeigh's sister hped the jury would show mercy. JENNIFER MCVEIGH, TIM MCVEIGH'S SISTER: I JUST WANT HIM TO LIVE.

According to the Centers for Disease Control, about a quarter of American women between the ages of 15-and-44, douche regularly.
But studies have suggested that women who douche are up to four times more likely to develop ectopic pregnancies and pelvic inflammatory disease.
The concerns prompted an F-D-A hearing on the safety of vaginal douches-- where it was decided that more studies are needed.
Confusing the issue-- the fact that women who are most likely to douche are also those already at high risk for infection and ectopic pregnancies.
In other words, poor women who smoke and are vulnerable to sexually transmitted diseases.... which is one reason industry representatives say there is no cause for alarm.
