Yesterday afternoon I came home from my cataract surgery completely demoralized when I heard that Baucus and two other wolves in sheep's clothing had defeated the two Public Option amendments offered. This news was the second piece of bad news I had come across that afternoon. While I was waiting to be called to be prepped for surgery I picked up the morning paper, The Arizona Daily Star, to read that it is now a law that anyone with a valid permit can carry a concealed weapon into a bar or restaurant in Arizona. How long do you think it will be before two drunks pull out their guns and do a re-enactment of the Okay Corral? Have all the conservatives lost their collective minds? They certainly have in my state.
On a personal note, my surgery was a walk in the park. I felt fine until a very bad headache crept into my skull last evening. On a follow-up-call to my surgeon this morning he said he believed it could have been due to dehydration because my eye looked fine and the surgery was successful. Well, we shall see because today my vision is blurred in that eye. The doctor thinks it will clear up. I hope so, because I will have traded one problem for another. I am no longer looking through fog and that's good.
Now for the promised humor to offset the bad news.
I hope you feel better now. I do!
