Funny and true in the UK, also true in the USA (edited to three years v. three months and including the Washington Nationals). The elections of this century have all been watershed decisions about our Nation's values and vision of the future, and about the effectiveness of representative democracy.

Up this year: choosing between an imperial and demagogic Presidency with a vision of sweeping away our troubles -- baby, bathwater, and all -- or a detail- focused manager aiming for another try at repairing and improving the existing bureaucracy.

By my count, We the People are batting (being generous here) slightly below 500 so far. Still, there's always Hope. Please register, talk your acquaintances into registering, and vote.

"I was shocked to find that the countries with the lowest abortion rates are the ones where abortion is most legal and available, and the countries with the highest abortion rates are generally the ones where the practice is illegal."

Once again showing that the "pro-life" movement is not especially interested in protecting life. On the other edge of the political salad plate, people of good conscience are protesting capital punishment, "wars of opportunity" -- and yes, laws against abortion.

Give gifts of experiences, not things. Things are a bundle of decay, experiences shining memories.
You don't have infinite money. Spend it on stuff that research says makes you happy.

Beautiful walking weather at Big Meadows sandwiched between one night of rain squalls and one night of near freezing temperatures.
