Email Of The Day

I found your blog purely by accident during the Dem primary fracas, not really knowing your Translucentcowfishnewbert1145302sw political bent. Which is probably a good thing since I am recovering from old bi-partisan prejudices which did not allow much room for conservative voices. But your refreshingly catholic view of the world has made me a fan.

This morning at my usual diner with my usual eggs I read the usual headlines in the NYTimes -- 41 dead in Kabul bombing, two giant mortgage lenders going broke, alcoholic veterans -- then I went home and turned on the computer. Your blog is always my first visit.  And what do I see? Your Face of the Day. Thank you for this small reminder of all that is beautiful and wondrous in this battered world.
