This is a link to a video. It so touched me that I want to share it. I'll have a bit more to say in the comment.

I have been watching this, at least once a day, for more than a week now. It is helplessly contagious. Oh, to start a new life with someone so joyous. Almost enough, well not quite, but it is a good beginning. And very funny.

This may be the single most amazing thing I have ever seen. I had no idea this was possible. Watch the video, you'll feel as Spirit did, as I did, stopped in my tracks by what this remarkable woman can do. I am going to learn a lot more about her!

This is a story that touched me deeply. Having fathered two sons and parented one black lab, every element of it hit home. Apparently with a lot of people as you'll see in the story and in the two links to the song I'll provide.

This is a funny clip. Sort of. Stephen Colbert is entertaining. But this story is deadly serious. Watch the right part of the screen as it changes. These morons are serious about this atrocity. If God is your thing, then God help us. If not, just stop.

This is not new, but it is still certainly relevant since they are still out there doing what they do. The least forgiving church I have ever had the misfortune of being aware of. This is just a really clever story, very funny, and still relevant.

This is a video story, it's only 15 minutes but it is incredibly moving and wonderful. I hope you'll take the time to meet Jill and hear her story.

Well, it isn't as if they have anything more important to do. So why not, I'd be interested to see their witness list. I think we should all be able to claim a credit on our taxes for the time the House spends on this ridiculous issue. Sigh.

This is a post by a mother raising a child she fears may be capable of something horrible. We are all talking about gun control, and that is important, but the real issue here is mental health, and that we are not talking about or providing.

Article describing how Minnesota's top executives have seen their pay rise 26% in 2011. Note that NO ONE else saw anything like explosion in income. Most of the rest of MN got 2% or less raises in 2011. So what is wrong with this picture? See the story.
