The Man With 400 Children
“[Kirk] Maxey, 51, happens to be one of the most prolific sperm donors in the country. Between 1980 and 1994, he donated at a Michigan clinic twice a week. He’s looked at the records of his donations, multiplied by the number of individual vials each donation produced, and estimated the success of each vial resulting in a pregnancy. By his own calculations, he concluded that he is the biological father of nearly 400 children, spread across the state and possibly the country.”

“A venerable British church has done what email addicts and workaholics have been doing for years – invoking the Almighty’s blessing on their high-tech gadgets. The Rev.

Dr. Mohler looks at Barnes & Noble’s Nook, their competitor to the Kindle in the growing e-book market. Here’s what he says: “I do like the Nook. It is good for Amazon to have competition for the Kindle. Do I think the Nook will displace the Kindle? No. Amazon has been at this longer and the Kindle is a really fine technology. Nevertheless, the Nook is really handsome and may over time reveal advantages not yet fully appreciated.”
