    It's what you don't know

    when you assume, that makes you look pretty bad. I can see a whole lot of people who would have disapproved of this little boy, [and his parents] without knowing anything more than what they saw...

    Sad news

    I just leaned of the death yesterday of our own Judy Avery/Pelicn, and I'm not ready to accept it. Judy was someone I admired a lot, and while I knew she was fighting cancer, she seemed to be beating the monster. EO and the world are sadder, without her.

    Speaking of substandard education...

    http://www.commondreams.org/news/2015/04/17/professors-outrage-sons-terror-based-sex-education-goes-viral It is a crime that this kind of misinformation is passed off as "education" these days. If you really want to reduce STDs, you start by increasing real education on the subject, and if...

    Medical recert craziness!

    Last week was the first time I had to choose a doc from the registry, and it was an eye opener [literally, lol]. I picked one in Louisville that was away from downtown, where most are concentrated, because I was in the truck. Probably better done when home, with access to a 4 wheeler, if...

    The Company You Keep

    Ok, calling it a "Hate Summit" is overkill, [but not by much!], but since they no longer use the "values" label in campaigns, it's up for grabs. I don't think I've ever seen such a list of crazy statements, misrepresentations, and outright lies being taken seriously by alleged adults. It...

    Frost laws

    Does anyone know of a map that shows the streets/roads under frost law restrictions? I tried the Michigan .gov site, they have lists of them, if you click on the county, which is great if you're local, but doesn't help if you don't know where they are. [Aside: why do road signs also assume you...

    Scumbag of the week

    Reading about Rick Scott, & HCA is absolutely nauseating. This cretin is admired and held up as an example of a "successful" businessman! [Only if the business involves cheating, lying, and fraud.] Equally disgusting is the current series in the Miami Herald about hospitals charging 'trauma...
