    Dear Amy: My fiance and I are expecting our first child next month. During a visit three months ago, his mother declared that she would be present for the birth. At that point we hadn’t even discussed the baby’s delivery, let alone visitors at home or at the hospital. We agreed to this, but now I’m resentful of her declaration and also stressed over the idea of his large family being with us during those early days. I don’t like to be crowded when I’m stressed, and he has a large and tight-knit family. I know they want to welcome our daughter into the world and to help out, but I’m not looking forward to it. I want to breastfeed in private and bond with my new family without people breathing down my neck. I thought I could compromise by stipulating that adults are welcome, but the young children are not. I told this to an older friend, who said I was being selfish to exclude the children and that they would resent this for years to come. Related Articles...
    Amid a text message scandal that has become a criminal matter, White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre made a point of expressing President Joe Biden‘s “confidence” in some members of the Secret Service. After the news broke last week that Secret Service text messages from Jan. 5 and Jan. 6, 2021 were deleted by the agency after they were told to preserve them, the January 6 Committee demanded all relevant evidence from Secret Service Director James Murray. This week, the Department of Homeland Security opened a criminal investigation into the deletions, and instructed Secret Service to cease all internal probes into the matter. The issue has led to chatter about the loyalties of agents who served during the insurrection. Jean-Pierre briefed reporters Friday, joined by White House Covid coordinator Dr. Ashish Jha to help field questions about President Biden’s Covid illness. Although that was the dominant topic, a few non-Covid questions slipped through — including one about the scandal. While the reporter couched the question as a general inquiry about record-keeping, Jean-Pierre made a point of volunteering that President Biden “has confidence” in the current...

    Prince Harry would have been safer coming to Britain for his grandfather's memorial service than going to Holland for the Invictus Games in a fortnight, the senior police officer who protected him and his mother told MailOnline today. The Duke of Sussex has made the decision to cross the Atlantic for The Hague shortly after refusing to be with his British family at Westminster Abbey ten days ago. After being delayed by the pandemic, the next staging of the Invictus Games, an international sports competition for injured or sick military personnel and veterans from across the globe, will take place from April 16 to 22.  Former Met Inspector Ken Wharfe, who was protection officer for Princess Diana, William and Harry, has said Invictus' links to the military and former soldiers -  common targets for terrorists including ISIS extremists - means the potential threat to them and Harry is arguably higher there than being in London for Prince Philip's service of thanksgiving on March 29.  The High Court heard the duke did not feel safe in Britain without Scotland Yard officers with him. Harry...

    DEAR MISS MANNERS: I was standing in line at the post office, wearing a mask. The man in front of me turned around and started shouting at me for wearing a mask. Judith Martin  I chose to ignore his initial shout. He continued shouting, telling me his views on masks, virus protocol and radio shows that are telling the “truth.” No one else in line, nor any employee, said anything. He got called to the window, conducted his business, and proceeded to shout at me again as I was leaving. How should one deal with such an aggressive person? I have the feeling that no matter what I said, it would not matter to him. GENTLE READER: There are many reasons not to engage with people who shout at strangers in public, not the least of which is fear of how quickly such situations turn to violence. And as you point out, attempting to reason with him would have been futile. Nevertheless, Miss Manners cannot help wishing that others in line had come forward, using their numbers as some protection,...

    Rep. Dan Crenshaw tore into the Biden administration's reported plan to pay migrant families separated at the border after crossing illegally $450,000 per person, noting that it was higher even than service members who die in combat.  'Biden wants to pay illegal immigrants $450,000 for their hardship while breaking our laws. For perspective, if a service member is killed in action, their next of kin gets an insurance payment of $400,000,' the Texas Republican wrote on Twitter. 'Let that sink in.' The US government offers $100,000 for those who die in combat.   The death gratuity payment, as it's called, is distributed among family members as designated by the service member, who is also eligible to opt in to a life insurance policy that pays out up to $400,000.     The US government also pays almost nothing to those who suffer a loss as a result of drone strikes abroad.   The government is currently trying to settle with migrants who say the Trump-era zero-tolerance policy, which in some cases separated them from their children for months at a time, caused them...

But she said those texts didn't sound like something her daughter would write and said 'It may not have been her.' Asked whether she thinks Brian...
