Family and Friends is my everyday journal. Captain's Log is where I pontificate on religion and politics.

Jumbled thoughts

  • Penni seems to be doing well, I wish to express my deepest and warmest sense of gratitude to all those who have added her to their prayer list, and have left a message on her caringbridge site.
  • Balloons went up Saturday morning and there was a balloon glow last night, too much weather between times. It was too windy this morning, but the rest of the week looks for good flying weather.
  • I've posted some balloon pictures and an interesting op-ed piece quoting Kippling on the Captain's Log blog
  • Paul Krugman had this to say about McCain's health care plan today in his op-ed piece: In short, the McCain plan makes no sense at all, unless you have faith that the magic of the marketplace can solve all problems. And Mr. McCain does: a much-quoted article published under his name declares that “Opening up the health insurance market to more vigorous nationwide competition, as we have done over the last decade in banking, would provide more choices of innovative products less burdened by the worst excesses of state-based regulation.” I agree: the McCain plan would do for health care what deregulation has done for banking. And I’m terrified.
