Matthew Shepherd bill passes House

Christianists have complained that the Matthew Shepherd bill would restrict their freedom of speech. I wish it would.

Specter update or why I left

If the call had been from a real person rather than a recording of someone saying he represented some Republican organization, I would have responded in kind. Don't call a Democrat who left that diseased organization and try to trash Senator Specter. Why do they think he and the rest of us left?

Our Senator Specter

I have always voted for Arlen Specter. He thinks independently. Democrats should not gloat. His changing from Republican to Democrat is not a victory for the Dems. It is a resounding renunciation of what the GOP has become - a bunch of sniveling, whining, prejudiced, closed-minded, selfish, fearful, pseudoChristian, intellectually infantile negativists. There are many of us who are not Democrats yet are forced to be registered as such because there is no alternative. We need another political party.

For Veet which makes removing the leg warmers carefully cultivated all winter much easier. Now the weather will probably get cold again.

Today's photos

There are many things I love about spring from the subtle colors of the budding trees to the coltsfoot appearing on the roadsides to violets everywhere and, yes, to dandelions. My yard and the one behind are covered with violets.

After church I stopped at a friend's to do something on the computer for her. This little gal was sitting on the windowsill beside me.

When I got home, Tommie was lying in the shade of the house.

Tim rolled in the shade of me.
