So, you know what day it is. What do you plan to do about it?

For me, it'll be just memories. But I have plenty of those, always beginning with -- brother, could she sew. This was important for a son constantly blowing out the seams of pants.

I was touched by Arthur Paul Bowen's column in the Democrat-Gazette this morning about singing favorite hymns to his dying mother. I sang my mother out of this world about 10 years ago with the last little ditty that she could summon as dementia advanced -- "Take Me Out to the Ballgame."

UPDATE: With rain keeping me off the streets this morning, I had to go to the scrapbook for Mother's Day-inspired memory trolling and the photo. (I should have also said she had beautiful hand-writing.)

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
