A day for remembering

There’s an old black and white photo of a young girl in a white dress and veil. On her shoulder is the hand of the man standing next to her, the bishop who had just presided at her confirmation. Both are smiling. She went on to be just another teenager. He, on the other hand, went to jail — with Martin Luther King. And Dad often wondered where I got the idea that rocking the boat was a good thing.

Common thread?

What do elephants have in common with ocean cruises and investment firms? Not a thing. So it's kind of interesting that an organization that works to safeguard the pachyderms runs an ad using the same music as ads for the cruise lines and investment firms. The music (Louis Armstrong's What a Wonderful World) works beautifully for the elephants, not so much for the other entities.

Not a big deal, just thought it interesting. And maybe I've been home too much for too long.

Button, button . . .

Does anyone here have any experience with those medical alert buttons (as in, "I've fallen and I can't get up"? Medicare coverage, price? I tried doing a google search and kept getting led to pages that go on and on and on and never get around to price; and some of those pages are clearly written by someone for whom English is not the first language. So, any guidance is appreciated. And thanks in advance!

For those who say there is no difference ---

Harry Reid was a good man. We may not have always understood his actions, but there was never any hint of malice, never any doubt that he respected the citizens of the country he clearly loved. As Senate Majority Leader he wielded the powers of his office like a master craftsman, always striving to sculpt a better government for the people.

And none of the foregoing will ever be said of Mitch McConnell.
