• Cataract surgery, pah! I've blogged my way through the flu, measles, two broken shins, a dislocated pelvis, TB, cowpox, gout, delusions of grandeur, and a hangover of biblical proportions. Grow a pair, Mona.

      PS I'd offer to fill in, but I'm on vacation in Istanbul. Also, my back is a...

    • Was it the use of my term Lemming? 

    • We live in the same city. There is only one city now. If you don't believe any of the policy changes made in how things are done are going to matter in the end, why suggest any changes at all?

      Have I ever suggested a policy change, I don’t recall


    • You are beyond conversation. You argue for something and abandon it like a forgotten child.


    • Oh, Emma... I'd never accuse you of pulling rank.  Just having superior knowledge. :)

    • Your reply does not address the contradictions I charged that you were entertaining in regards to the consequences of disenfranchising a segment of the population through the instrument of Law.

      You have explained why you believe what you believe many times. I understand your message and...

    • My take on all of this is that the nurses cannot afford humor. hahahaha

      I just know that following both surgeries, I could see.

      There is nothing really of relevance here!


      The experience is something else.

      To be legally blind and then to SEE?

    • Sorry, was not trying to pull seniority on you. My point was that appreciation of satire/humor is relative to the zeitgeist when it is read.

      Oh, and there was no middle schools around here back then. Elementary 1-8; High School 9-12. That class was probably my most memorable from high...

    • I imagine you can be a handful when you are medicated.  LOL  I bet your train of thought was real interesting and maybe the nurse didn't have much sense of humor that day.

    • These are the things that make people wake up to the fact that they have to vote.  It is the hardships that they are causing.

       I am going to go out on a limb here and state the Republicans are going to get some of their asses kicked in Nov. The GOP is not going to gain much. The over...

    • Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim the tribute of patriotism, who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness, these firmest props of the duties of...

    • I had cataract surgery twice, 2002 and 2011?

      The first time I was lost.

      I mean I could not see ANYTHING!

      The last  time I entered the hospital and I had no idea what they were doing.

      It was like entering a car wash. hahahaha

      They did not listen to one...

    • Yes, these people vote too? 

      I don't know whether to laugh or shake my head, 

    • We will just have to continue agreeing to disagree about the religious convictions of the "Forefathers." Perhaps you can post your own blog about that and invite discussion of the matter on your own terms.

      But your reply does suggest that I have represented your point of view accurately...

    • She wasn't the only one who read it in school in the early sixties. I thought it was a easy read compared to The Robe, Withering Heights, Tail of Two Cities and The Three Musketeers.  

    • Hazard of doing Dag book reviews... people like Emma will say, "Oh, I read that... in middle school!"

    • I was thinking about you.  I am glad you are getting better.  Just drop us a line from time to time to let us know how you are doing.

    • When you wax rhapsodic about the futility of human institutions to save mankind from mankind, the premise of government itself is depicted as the harlot in the employ of the Evil One.

      That very thought was on our forefathers minds. They didn’t trust governments...
