My high horse is getting something done about gun deaths and injuries. This time, there seems to be a LOT of national interest and momentum for some very reasonable steps: background checks for every sale; stopping sales of military-style weapons and high-capacity magazines. Also, giving ATF a director, and the ability to do its mission; letting data be collected and crunched, so that we have a better sense of what helps and what doesn't so much.
That's right: NRA's many efforts have included not wanting data collected. I guess their horse is of the apocalyptic kind, but don't we need to know more about how 30,000+ people in the US are killed by guns each year, and dog alone knows how many more are injured? So we can figure out how to not have the worst gun violence record in the developed world? None of these proposed steps forward will make the cops come take your weapons, or infringe the rights of hunters. They are all steps supported by police officers, and parents, and even most gun owners.
In the broad rivers category -- sometimes important things take time to come to fruition. Too much time! Eyes on the prize.
Windowsills -- mine have mold. Gah! And if I was a better housekeeper, I'd be scrubbing the mold regularly. But I'm not. Also, the dish fairy is MIA.
Son is home: eating the house, swapping out some stuff he left here during the move, working on his bike. Fortunately, the crockpot has been working on a nice soup with chicken meatballs, onions, carrots, celery, mustard greens, lentils, peas, spices, broth.
What's new with you?
