Survival through laugther

This is my mom Brenda Casavant. She's an amazing woman who has battled cancer three times and continues to battle diabetes and polymyalgia rheumatica.

Please read her story, and cast your vote for her in the contest "America's Favorite Mom." If you're inspired by her, which I'm sure you will be, please share it with everyone you know.

Even if she doesn't win the contest, it means the world to my family and me to be able to honor her and all she's been through.

Truth in the light of day

Even a major media outlet whose publisher leans to the right of center and is a critic of Barack Obama reported on the historic nature of Obama's speech today.

U.S. News & World Report: Obama's Race Speech Heralded as Historic

I knew this speech was coming as soon as the media feeding frenzy began last week around the sermons of Pastor Wright, and it makes me even prouder to be an elected delegate for Obama.

I reiterate the quote in my post titled "Interlude."

I have succumbed to writer's block, migraines, and general laziness as late. However, I shall be back this week.

In the meantime, I would like to share this quote with you.

"When was the last time you talked about race with someone of a different race? If the answer is never, you're part of the problem." - Bill Bradley
