Health care is a basic human right, not a privilege. For some reason, we’ve allowed ourselves as Americans to be fooled into accepting that one must be blessed with “means” to actuate appropriate health care. As a nation we have failed to realize that our health care system is a barometer of our society’s value for human life.

November 1, 2008

Many things will come to pass on November 1st of this year, the most notable being that I shall no longer be a Rittmann and will commence my life as a Waline.

Amidst frigid temperatures in Saint Cloud this past weekend, my beautiful Bob the Babe theoretically dropped to one knee (okay, not one, nor even two, but stanced evenly on two feet) and asked me to spend my life committed to him in marriage.

I, of course, accepted.

Should you happen to be in Saint Cloud these next few days and wonder about its unnatural glow, understand that it is most assuredly the residual of my happiness.

Oh for goodness sake. I was over here a day ago and thought the link had taken me to an old post from November of 2007 so I didn't read it...............

Congratulations to you and Bob The Babe. I am so pleased for you.
