Hunter in the Headlines

Today's front page of The Olympian (at least the online front page) features a story about the infection control bill and our testimony yesterday.

Hunter's name is not actually mentioned, referring only to my 15-month-old daughter. I suspect there is a rule or policy against citing a minor's name.

And Children's Hospital is not actually mentioned, referring only to "a Seattle hospital." I suspect there is hesitancy among wealthy newspaper owners to cite by name hospitals with wealthy donors based on a single person's public testimony to a Senate Committee. Who knows?

I promised that Hunter's ordeal at Children's Hospital would become front page news, and it has. This is only the beginning. Little feats of little feet.
