I feel so badly for the people in Moore, and in OK City, and really, for Oklahomans everywhere. The destruction I’ve seen on TV was horrible.
Their senator Tom Coburn (and their other senator and two of their reps) voted twice against relief for the victims of Sandy… and Coburn’s also implicit in the alteration of the white-house emails regarding Benghazi being faked and released to ABC. Asking for help. Yeah, we need to help the tornado victims… but fuck him… just fuck him and his fellow senator and the two reps.
Typical republicans, if it ain’t good for them, it ain’t good for the country. Fuck ‘em all.
As an aside, good strong storm shelters could be built in every school in tornado alley if we’d stop giving the rich corporations welfare and tax the rich at an equitable rate.
As a day, it was OK…. got up around noon, went to my anti-coagulation nurse… and I was doing 4.4 INR. That’s dangerously high, dammit, and this is why I want to go on the other medication.
I’ve been taking PCN, of course, and also Advil for the gouty stuff… and that jacks it up. Interestingly, the PCN has not screwed with my blood sugar that much since I’ve been taking it.
We met a friend serendipitously at Lazio’s and had a nice conversation with him… there’s kind of a kerfuffle with the atheist group that I haven’t gotten involved in yet, and I might just stay out of it completely.
We watched the coverage of Moore most of the afternoon and evening and then there were some clouds around sunset so we headed out to observation hill and it was rather disappointing… the clouds were every which way but west, dammit, except for one little bit… and that might have been from the power plant that’s in that direction. But, when it comes to sunsets, clouds is clouds, heh. Ya takes what ya can gets.
Tomorrow I’ll get my ear biopsied or cut off, one or the other… and that’s the end of my doc appointments until July, I hope.
And then there’s the Topeka Science Cafe tomorrow evening, looking forward to that. I still want to make a logo but I haven’t got around to doing that yet….
