I"ve Heard Enough

When people cheer and shout "Yeah!" when a hypothetical question is asked of a so-called political leader about letting a young, healthy man without insurance, who has had a serious accident die, then I think I have heard enough.

I am not a perfect human being; I have flaws of character I strive everyday to overcome.  But when it comes to men and women cheering for the idea of allowing a human being to die because he or she has no money to afford their medical treatment, I think I have heard quite enough.

With every fiber in my being, I will resist that cruel calculus that holds another person's life so cheaply. 

The Nosy Tomato

Plucked this guy the other day.  So cute with that jaunty little cap of green at the top.  So tasty after a rinse and joined with the other ingredients for a caprese style salad.

I Know Exactly

I know exactly where I was 10 years ago tomorrow.   I have been in mourning for our nation ever since.
