    Happy birthday to everybody, but especially Muhammad Ali, the Greatest of All Time.  

    Cheers to Eisenhower, who saw it all coming.  52 years ago I was five years old, coming off ear surgery that allowed me to hear for the first time.  It was confusing and often scary.  But I remember that speech.  I read it in the newspaper (my literacy skills were always far ahead of anything else I could do) with my grandfather helping with the big words.  And then...President Kennedy.  So shiny.

    Jeers to another shooting in my poor busted little city.  This time at or near the house where Aunt Mildred lived.  My neighborhood is gang central now.

    Jeers to Mr. escapee's germs, which seem stronger than mine.  I got antibiotics (albeit for something else) early and he didn't.  

    Cheers to finding something else to drink besides grape juice: cranberry juice with a shot of ginger ale.

    And cheers to all of us, 'cause we rock!
