understand. There are hours that are relatively pain free,
and many hours of almost totally frozen neck, and extreme
headache. My focus remains good, but my time, energy
and hours are being significantly shortened. Again, please
try to be patient with me.
I see no indication that there is any long-term damage.
I see now that my resting computer postures for the last
15 months have been destroying my neck (duh). I've slipped
a disk in my neck, or something like that, and almost
always such problems heal themselves in about 6 weeks. I'm
1/3 of the way there!

Arizona's governor just signed SB 1070 into law, effectively making it legal to racially profile in the state. The bill requires local law enforcement to question anyone they have "reasonable suspicion" of being undocumented. Translation: you could be pulled over for no other reason than that you are brown-skinned or speak Spanish.
That Gov. Jan Brewer could sign such a discriminatory law — one of the worst in the nation — is a moral outrage. We need to send a clear message that Arizona does not deserve economic support from the rest of the country. Tourism is a huge industry in the state — bringing in $18 billion last year. With the passage of SB 1070, it's time to say shame on Arizona and pledge not spend our dollars in a place where racial profiling is legal. Will you join us?
The bill that Gov. Brewer just signed makes it a misdemeanor to lack proper paperwork in Arizona. It also requires police officers to attempt to determine a person's immigration status if they form a "reasonable suspicion" that someone is undocumented.
Leading police chiefs and sheriffs have even expressed outrage at the bill's signing, saying that it will cause immigrants to avoid reporting crimes, and divert officers' attention from going after violent offenders.
The conservatives who passed SB 1070 may not care about Latino communities feeling safe, but they definitely care about the tourism industry that brings in billions of dollars to the state. We need to show them that their decisions have consequences. Will you join us? It only takes a moment:
Thank you and ¡Adelante!

"Which cell in your body keeps you alive?" SL asks in reply.
"I'm just one cell in our human body.
But I'm finally doing my part, now.
We are ALL just cells in the near immortal
body of humanity. Practically all of we
westerners have decided that being CANCER
is the way to be. Me too. But not any longer."

Perish the thought that I should do the work of raising the
capital for it.
PERISH THE THOUGHT THAT THE LEFT SHOULD WORK
TO RAISE THE POLITICAL CAPITAL FOR WHAT IT WANTS!!!
'Demanding it' is ever so much more easy!!!!!
Hmmmm, but 'demanding it' is entirely hopeless, and irresponsible.
And it KILLS TIME, and TIME IS LIFE.

The Lie: the Bible is perfectly God's word.
This Lie, This Error transforms what would be a stepping stone,
a jumping off point, like Newton's works in science,
INTO A PRISON, FROM WHICH HUMANKIND CANNOT ESCAPE,
AND CAN ONLY ROT, AND DIE.
UNLESS WE ESCAPE THE LIE, IN TIME.
The best of the Bible IS the leading edge of Science -
The worst is pure Evil, Error, Death, Voodoo, Mass-Murder." SL
