only in north carolina will you see tobacco-spitting, red-neck, tough guys strutting around in eye-shadow blue shirts and coats. they may even have a little extra bounce in their step with carolina making it to the final four.

someone recently told me they felt really comfortable hanging out with natalie and i – i know, i know, if i hadn’t gotten it in writing and been able to read it a couple of times to make sure i got it right i wouldn’t have believed it either.

we share our building and parking log with a bankruptcy court which holds hearings on tuesdays and fridays. besides the crying going on in the lobby you know court is in session when the parking attendants switch from collecting fees as you exit to as you enter.

as sad and horrible as this already is i’m beyond disgusted that our hypocritical “state rights” republicans would race back to washington to intervene with the terri schiavo case that the florida courts have consistently ruled in favor of the husband.

one of the fringe benefits of having a web site to toss garbage out on to is getting unsolicited, generous responses like this:

the first few chapters were very difficult to get through because they were filled with stories like the one below. this book adds to my conviction that no one really wins a war and that present generations do very little to prevent making the same mistakes that have occurred in the past. from the author: the soldier in the icu was no more than a boy, and he was dying. he had multiple abdominal wounds. tubes connected him to the equipment around him. one morning at about five, he asked stephanie for a glass of orange juice. “i told him he couldn’t have anything to drink”, she tearfully explained. he answered, “stephanie, i’m dead anyway. it doesn’t matter”. “ok”, she said, “let me see”. she called the doctor, who said “no”, so stephanie gave him nothing. fifteen minutes later he was dead.
