    It would seem that she did not try to contact her 77 yr. old mother for months and months. Apparently they did not get along. Too bad, because the old woman was dead for months. As Drudge reports it:


    A gruesome scene has unfolded on North Palm Drive in Beverly Hills where Dr. Laura Schlessinger's mother has been found dead -- with the body going undiscovered for months!
    Yolanda Schlessinger, 77, died all alone in her apartment months ago, authorities now believe.

    Dr. Laura said:

    "I am shocked and horrified that she is a victim of a violent crime... I guess one of the reasons I am committed to sanctity of the family is because I was not fortunate to grow up in a close knit family myself... It was her choice to be estranged from her entire family... I do pray she is at peace... Hold your family very close, very tight and very dear, and don't sweat the petty stuff..."

    I take her at her word that it was her mother's choice to be estranged from her family.

    What Dr. Laura lacked in her family growing up has created a passion in her that drives her to try and keep families together. Maybe she has become a good daughter in other families.

    Misu Hey, I saw that.

    Not to defend Dr. Laura, but why do people automatically assume that it's the child's fault for the bad relationship between them and their parent?

    Actually, I never considered the possibility that the Right Reverend Madam Doctor Turkey Neck ever had parents.

    It takes two to make a relationship just as it takes two to make an argument.

    Whatever the facts of estrangement it is my understanding that the mother was estranged from the entire family, not just her famous daughter.

    The family estrangement scenario similar to Dr. Laura's is quite common in this country.

    My mother and I recently reunited after not speaking for 22 years. After a period of time you just don't know how to stop not speaking.
