Today on TV Mitch and I saw a paraplegic racing down a hill on a ski like this:
And Mitch said, (to the guy on the ski), "Be careful or you'll paralyze the rest of yourself!"
I can't stop laughing about it.

“If I thought that the man’s signature was required… required, in order for a woman to have an abortion, I’d have a little more peace about it…”He'd feel better if a man gave his permission for a woman to decide whether or not she wants to spend the next eight months carrying a baby she never intended to have. Because lord knows, men know WAY more about what is good for women than women do.
There was no clarification about what would happen if the impregnator was a woman’s rapist, or father, or abuser, or how paternity would be determined beforehand. No word about how it would be enforced, or what would legally happen to a woman or a doctor if it wasn’t. No word on how a signature would be validated, or what notarization or witnesses might be necessary to prove the signature was real. Nothing about what happens if a man and a woman disagree, or if a man refuses to acknowledge the notification, or if he can’t be contacted.Ladies, we have to wake up and take a role in preventing our country and our bodies from being taken over by neoconservative nutjobs who want to simultaneously prevent the poor and middle class from receiving affordable health care (because, let's be honest, if you have enough money, these particular laws can be sidestepped), but also forcing us to go through with pregnancy whether we want to or not.
|Oo, maybe not.|
|Oh, sorry Mom, not that kind...|

"...I read Roman Blood which I loved, but I read it late at night when I was very tired, and you know how you get a picture of the characters in your head and usually they are people you know or actors or something? Well, unfortunately I had Mr. Peabody and his pet boy Sherman from the Rocky and Bullwinkle show in my head for Gordianus and Tiro for about the first half of the book until I could finally make it stop."
Thanks for such an enthusiastic and encouraging message.
I hope you'll enjoy Empire all the way to the bittersweet end.
Gordianus and Tiro as Mr. Peabody and Sherman is a new one on me. Now I can't get that image out of my head (lol)!
Steven [Saylor]"OMG. I can't tell you how surprised and thrilled I was to get an email from Steven Saylor! I'm a tiny bit sorry that I might have ruined Gordianus and Tiro for both of us, but mostly I'm happy he gave me an "lol."
