harry is one of a kind. he can rest assured that his good influence has rippled out into the the world in the hearts and minds of his former students. the world is a better place because of him. happy retirement professor shaffer.

Congress and President Bush Bailout Kansas Grandparent Caregivers

john - i appreciate your updates on these social issues. as a grandmother, this subject is close to my heart. i admire and, at the same time, sympathize with grandparents who are raising their grandchildren. i love to keep my grandchildren but at the end of the day i am exhausted and ready to send them back to their parents. i can't imagine never getting a break. i have always wondered if there was a respite care program for these grandparents. i would be interested in being a part of something like that as a volunteer. - ginny

This One's For Toot

max - i didn't know who was responsible for the emails but i did receive them from my conservative friends (mostly elderly) until two days before the election. each time i received one, i refered the sender to factcheck.org, which ironically was fox news sunday's power player of the week a few weeks before the election. i felt angry, not only because i feared the effect they would have on the election but also because my friends were being exploited.

My New Love Affair with Rain Boots

ahh...if only some parents and teachers who bring children to our pumpkin farm would read this blog. it breaks my heart to hear them tell the kids to stay out of the mud. the look of disappointment on the kids' faces says it all. great blog sandy.

Saturday Night Live: A New Low?

tom shewman says: These lousy shows and personalities seem to be gather their scripting material from the far-left blogosphere.when asked why the left doesn't have a counter to fox news, bill o'rielly, rush limbaugh and their ilk; my son said it best when he answered, "we do - only we call it commedy."
