Re: “Jumper survives leap from I-430 bridge

Wow, what a horrible thing to say. I passed by this lady on my way to work this morning. thankful she did not succeed and praying she gets the support she needs to get through whatever she is dealing with to make her desperate enough to want to end her life.

Re: “David Koon: At the Obama inaugural

Wow, wonderful article that brought tears to my eyes. I will never forget my first visit to D.C. I was in 7th grade. It was a school sponsored trip. I wanted to go so badly but I came from a family that was definitely not in the 1% or even middle class. My solution? I crafted homemade pot holders, etc to sell door to door in my neighborhood. Of course, I didn't raise enough money that year (6th grade). LOL! The next year my school held an essay competition and the winner won a paid spot on the school trip to D.C. Topic: The importance of American history. Oh I was so determined to write the best essay ever as I really wanted to go to D.C. This girl won and I will never forget that trip! Even at that young of an age I was in awe of the history and importance of what I was able to see and experience. 24 years later and the memories still make me smile! I think it was that time in my life that I began to fall in love with history. Now I long to go back! I am pregnant with our first child and cannot wait until he/she is old enough for a family trip to D.C.

Re: “Friday night line

I'm a little late jumping in but wanted to give my condolences to eLwood. Lucky sure seemed like a sweet pup! I wanted to share this poem. It was somehow very comforting to me when we lost our two dogs only a few months apart.

Do not stand at my grave and weep;
I am not there. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn's rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush,
I am the swift uplifting rush
of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry;
I am not there, I did not die.
-Mary Elizabeth Frye

I truly believe our four legged "furbabies" as I refer to them, never truly leave us. The conditional love we receive from them and the memories stay with us always!

Re: “Have at it

DBI, do you mind if I share your comment on my FB page? I will list your screenname and the link to this page. It is such a good comment (as all your commentary is) and sums up exactly how I feel!

Re: “Classic car auction today

Blackwhitegray, do you remember how much the 70's model Bronco and the built International went for?

Re: “The moral majority returns

Saline, I will need to double check this but I am pretty certain that Dr. Nathanson's "film" The silent scream was later proved to be a complete fake. Just thought you would like to know.
