Writer's Horoscope #5 - It's Written in the Stars! — Hahaha.

Get Fuzzy on equine literary figures — Hahaha more.

Examining Individual Tumor Cells Understanding the different populations of mutant cells in a cancer could mean more targeted treatments. Interesting. I was unaware of the concept of tumor heterogeneity. That's one potential explanation for the slightly unusual etiology of my metastasis.

Life on Earth Arose Just Once — I'm not sure I track the conclusions here, but it's interesting. Of course, there's always stromatolites.

How Do Christians Become Conservative? — Interesting. He's got a point. On the face of his own words, Jesus was a lot more interested in helping the poor than in limiting government or hating liberals.

Military bloggers take a nuanced approach to the Don't Ask, Don’t Tell debate — Hey. Nuance and sanity on a sensitive political topic. Hooray!

Laura Bush Supports Gay Marriage, Abortion
In Interview Former First Lady Splits With Husband on Same-Sex Marriage, Abortion. Why do conservative figures seem to only say and do the right, moral thing when it doesn't matter any more?

In Northeast, raids break the peaceWhy would an American, living the American dream, set out to attack the United States? Excellent question. Ask Timothy McVeigh, or Eric Rudolph, or any number of militia members and forced pregnancy enthusiasts. Oh, wait, CNN, you meant Arab-Americans, not white people. Sorry. My mistake.

?otD: Who is your favorite horse (of course)?

Writing time yesterday: none (chemo)
Body movement: 30 minute stationary bike ride

This morning's weigh-in: 230.4
Yesterday's chemo stress index: 8/10 (fatigue, peripheral neuropathy)

Currently (re)reading: Unseen Academicals by Terry Pratchett

When I was little, I thought Don Quixote's name was Donkey Hody. (Like "Go tell Aunt Rhody," only without the R.) So I feel Satchel's pain here.

"In Northeast, raids break the peace — Why would an American, living the American dream, set out to attack the United States? Excellent question. Ask Timothy McVeigh, or Eric Rudolph, or any number of militia members"...

... who aren't in the article because they weren't in the Northeast and sfaik had not succeeded in living the American dream? The one who recently crashed his plane into an IRS office in Texas, said he was in financial trouble (for which he blamed the IRS). (And the Times Square guy's dream was about to be foreclosed or something, so the article [or more likely the headline] may be wrong on him too, if I ever get around to reading it.)

Surely you've noticed the tendency to identify conservative/white terrorism as "protest" while Islamic terrorism is branded as such. The CNN narrative strongly supports that interpretation by implication, which was my point.

I've always wondered what Mrs. Bush saw in Mr. Bush -- she's a librarian, for crying out loud!
