andy and his grandfather,

my father, who died when i was 13 and consequently never
met the grandchildren that came from me [my mom got to
see john and bekah, and died 5 months after bekah's birth
after suffering a stroke on the day i was due].

we a navy family in large part. not exclusively, but
extensively. my father was on the USS California on Dec 7, 1941, and was on the USS Lexington on
May 7 and 8, 1942.

got out of the war alive and in 1968 went back to Hawaii for a job
opportunity, the rest of the family to follow. dropped dead of a heart
attack 6 weeks into it.

i've not seen hawaii yet. but i do hope to before it's all over.

The Blog | Jane Smiley: We're There Now | The Huffington Post:If you aren't crying about this, my fellow Americans,
you should be. I am.

Jane Smiley, one of my favorite writers, discusses the
recent law the bushies - criminals every one - passed
through congress.

as dr eldritch on DU says, "It's official.
America is a fascist state."

oh my country tis of thee where the hell do you be

Who am i, what am i
A picture's worth
