This past weekend, the Wall Street Journal did a story on Isabella Rossellini, daughter of Ingrid Bergman and Roberto Rossellini.  She had an illustrious career as a model and actress, and now lives on a farm in New York State.  The article gives prompts, and she filled in the rest.

US Supreme Court, in a 6-3 decision, overturns Roe Vs Wade. What it actually means. New stories added.

First of all, I would like to thank President Donald Trump for appointing three of the six Justices who voted to overturn the 1970s case that found a "right to privacy" in the Constitution where it did not, and does not, exist.  The hysterical Left, for whom abortion is their Holy Sacrament, were losing their …
