    Seems like this is a post and run morning for everyone.  

    I'll offer a couple of news bits in case anyone is interested.

    Obama Rebukes Richard Mourdock for Rape Remarks on "Tonight Show"

    “I don’t know how these guys come up with these ideas,” Obama said in an appearance on the “Tonight Show with Jay Leno” Wednesday. “Let me make a very simple proposition, rape is rape. It is a crime. And so these various distinctions about rape don’t make too much sense to me, don’t make any sense to me.”
    You know what, Mr. President?  They don't make any sense to me either.

    Neuroscientist Sees "Proof of Heaven" in Week-Long Coma

    Deep in coma, his brain infected so badly only the most primitive parts were working, Alexander claimed he experienced something extraordinary: a journey to Heaven.
    "I know this is not a hallucination, not a dream, not what we call a confabulation," Alexander said. "I know that it really occurred, and it occurred outside of my brain."
    International vote monitors warn Texas: Don't mess with us
    International election monitors took a dim view on Wednesday of Texas' threat to prosecute them if they observe voting in the state a bit too closely on November 6.
    "The threat of criminal sanctions against OSCE/ODIHR observers is unacceptable," Janez Lenarcic, director of the OSCE's Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights (ODIHR) monitoring arm, said in a statement.

    "The United States, like all countries in the OSCE, has an obligation to invite ODIHR observers to observe its elections."

    Go ahead, Texas...get froggy.  

    As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them. John F. Kennedy
