This statistic is horrifying … and yet we, as a nation, seem unable to muster the will to push through meaningful healthcare reform. Meanwhile, those who are least likely to favor measures that could save lives are probably the same folks who tout the moral superiority of the US of A … and would much rather see pregnant women die than allow them to make choices about their bodies.
So, I have decided to flee. Yes, it’s true … I am leaving and going to visit HollyCornblog and CharlieHopbrew. I may or may not check the news while I am away. I may or may not blog. It’s all up in the air.
I will be checking out the work that’s underway at the lake (shoring up the foundations, putting drainage all around the house, replacing the livingroom floor). The photo is of the pile of gravel they’ll be packing in around the house for drainage.
Oh, and we will also be taking in the dock, bringing in the boats for the winter … and maybe also splitting some firewood down at H&C’s house. Then, of course, there is also FFootball to keep up with … and HollyCornblog’s home brews to sample.
Healthcare reform will just have to wait ’til I get back, I guess …
