11 January 2006

And the rain came down

So if you live in southern California, or Hawaii, or Florida or south Texas and you are tired of that constantly sunny weather, move to northeast Ohio. We have a saying here; "If you don't like the weather, wait 15 minutes." Cause it will change. Early this morning, leaving a meeting at a satellite site, I was BLINDED by the sun. And then when I left my office at 11:25 for an 11.30 next door, it was pouring down rain with winds gusting around 25 mph. It IS January, right? We should have about half a foot of snow and temps in the 20s, and our high is 50 today. Don't tell me that global warming isn't happening, cause our weather is proof.

I have not been listening to the confirmation hearings about Sam Alito on NPR, I'm feeling like all the fighting in the world isn't going to make a difference and we will be S-O-L when it comes to abortion rights in a few years. A delightful byproduct of the gloomy weather, don't ya know. But the nice lady at Pro-Choice America has been sending me daily "must reads" and I'm posting them here. Don't forget to contact YOUR senator at NARAL.org and check out save roe while you're at it.
