I LOVE Rosie too and have been thrilled that she is back on television. She makes me happy. Literally!
But that comment was so narrow-minded. Particularly considering her political stance.
She needs an education and I hope the members of this board flood her email!

Her comment which was " this whole peanut thing is out of control , they see one penaut and they shut the whole school down," this was in response to a guest saying " be careful some schools ban peanuts fromschools"
It was very uncalled for and not what any of us need to have said in the media.

I was just coming here to post about it... I already wrote a letter to Rosie and also to Barbara Walters. I was livid at Rosie's comments!

It wasn't Elizabeth that made the "don't send peanuts" comment, it was their guest.
But as a young parent, Elizabeth needs to know these things, too!
I am so disappointed about this. Rosie's voice is so widely-heard. I would have expected b.s. like this from Joy, but not Rosie.
I know they are just television personalities, but this really bothers me. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/frown.gif[/img]

No fellow human being chooses to be peanut allergic any more than Rosie chose to be gay. [/i]
Too pi$$ed to write to the show just yet.

well yes....elizabeth....you do have a point. completely. as much as i like rosie, her level of understanding about the difficulties many people deal with day to day should be deeper. that is true.

...and now that i've heard the exact quote and the manner in which it was used, i do have to agree that it wasn't said in the spirit of humor. hopefully, one (or all) of us can get through to her somehow by email or whatever and educate her a bit.

I just watched the show, and was on my way to write to all of you, when I saw that it was already written about. As soon as I finish this, I am going to write to The View. I would beg all of you to write too. Maybe we can get someone to start to talk about this. Wouldn't that be nice.
I do have to say that whether you like Rosie or not, it is obvious that she represents all of those people who 1. just don't get it, and 2. who have never seen there child stop breathing after an exposure to Peanut or any Lifethreatning Allergy.
People really do need to start to get it. Hopefuly the more we talk about it the more they will get it.
Please, Please, Please write to The View!!!
