Short newsy bits

How’s this for a gamut: My mom has had four doctor appointments in five business days through yesterday, and she has medical tests tomorrow too. Fortunately, two of the appointments were routine, and a third was with her heart surgeon who released her from his care, No more appointments with him, yay! (Though he is a nice enough guy.) This run is just a quirk of scheduling, really, but it reminds me of how crazy stuff was last year.

It has been stupid-hot this week (90s F/low 30s C), but a front went through this morning so it’ll get back to more seasonal temperatures (70s F/low 20s C).

Speaking of stupid, I guess the Republican presidential campaign is in full swing now. Sigh.

Our senior Louisville correspondent reports that reconstruction of the giant Jesus statue alongside I-75 north of Cincinnati has commenced. (The Middletown Journal has a more detailed article, with photos.) The original was struck by lightning last year and burned utterly. They’re adding a lightning-suppression system this time. Apparently they’re not taking out the added idolatry, though, as it will be 51 feet tall and probably as dominant in the landscape as before.

About songdogmi

I'm a longhaired almost-hippie stuck in the inner suburbs of a major rust-belt metropolis who's thoughtful, creative, and kind of geeky. In exchange for a paycheck I run around in a cubicle maze most days. When I escape, I play music, hang out in coffee houses, dink around on the computer, take naps, and think I should be off in the woods somewhere. Every once in a while I get in my car and drive far, far away, though I've always come back so far.

      Thanks. Recovery from the surgery has taken a long time. We didn’t appreciate that before it was scheduled, and that frustrated her a bit, but she’s getting stronger and doing better and better.
