Yesterday, after VBS I checked my phone to find that Harold had left a message. Uncle Jerry had died. He had non-Hodgekins Lymphoma. Somehow I got the idea that this was quite treatable and that he would be fine. I feel so bad that Aunt Eleanor was dealing with this and I had no idea. The funeral will be Saturday. Sue said she would play for me so we can go down for it.

UPDATE
For the most part I try to stay a-political on the blog (the exception is the topic of abortion), however, this makes me angry.

I found the following on an official government website:
http://www.whitehouse.gov/blog/Facts-Are-Stubborn-Things/
There is a lot of disinformation about health insurance reform out there, spanning from control of personal finances to end of life care. These rumors often travel just below the surface via chain emails or through casual conversation. Since we can’t keep track of all of them here at the White House, we’re asking for your help. If you get an email or see something on the web about health insurance reform that seems fishy, send it to flag@whitehouse.gov.

The above is in reference to growing complaints from people who are suspicious as to why Obama's Health Care plan is being fast-tracked and has not been read by the people who are voting on it. Last I knew, free speech was protected. If I recall, these same people were up in arms over the wire tapping of suspected terrorists during the Bush administrations.

I don't know about you, but that just creeps me out. It brings to mind the Hitler regime

Word of the day:
Wednesday of the Eighteenth week in Ordinary Time

Today the Church celebrates : Dedication of St. Mary Major (Mary of the Snows)
Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Matthew 15:21-28.


Then Jesus went from that place and withdrew to the region of Tyre and Sidon. And behold, a Canaanite woman of that district came and called out, "Have pity on me, Lord, Son of David! My daughter is tormented by a demon." But he did not say a word in answer to her. His disciples came and asked him, "Send her away, for she keeps calling out after us." He said in reply, "I was sent only to the lost sheep of the house of Israel." But the woman came and did him homage, saying, "Lord, help me." He said in reply, "It is not right to take the food of the children and throw it to the dogs." She said, "Please, Lord, for even the dogs eat the scraps that fall from the table of their masters." Then Jesus said to her in reply, "O woman, great is your faith! Let it be done for you as you wish." And her daughter was healed from that hour.
