Chilly Toes

Inside again today - boy does our lovely receptionist travel a lot! Lucky her. :)

Actually I was quite glad to be inside because evidently it was VERY cold outside. We broke out the toe warmers for the first time this year! Such fun. Nothing much of interest to report. As SL has pointed out in her comments, the protesters are becoming gradually tamer as they try to present themselves as "not a public safety risk". That means, thankfully, no shouting, no bloody signs, and no Crazy Legs. They aren't letting her out at all anymore, which really works out well for everyone - even though it deprives the escorts of a valuable source of entertainment.

Peter Ryan wrote an opinion piece in the Telegraph Journal (the Saint John paper) on Saturday, and today my response was posted. Hooray! That's one out of at least three letters (that I know of) in opposition, but at least they're trying.

The other night I tortured myself by watching "Unborn in the USA: Inside the War on Abortion". It's a very well put together documentary about the pro-life movement in America. They explore a variety of players, from young people learning to be empathetic pro-lifers at the Focus on the Family college (yes, they have one) to various members of Army of God talking about how little sympathy they have for the widow and fatherless children of Dr. Slepian. It was extremely depressing, all told, but at least it exposed every aspect of the movement's ridiculous hysteria and total lack of logic. I recommend it, but be warned: it will make you weep for humanity.

On a brighter note, I stumbled across this poem on the internet today and it made me laugh. Enjoy.
