Watched a bunch of the health care farce on Fox last night (thank goodness for Hannity because the folks at CNN were really on a pompous roll last night). Love Boener's speech and thought it was spot on. It's going to be an interesting rest of the year since the congresscritters will be coming home for the Easter break. If Ben Nelson thought he had it bad after the 'Cornhusker deal' that he made, I think that being booed out of a restaurant is going to be the least of every person who voted for that travesity's worries.
On the brighter side, mom is doing better and will hopefully have her stuff done and over with should Obamacare actually make it out of the courts (if it's not repealed first--I'm a glass-half-full kind of chick). I don't think that we could have gone into the emergency room, gotten a full blood workup, CT scan, and all of the other things we did in a three hour period on Saturday night once the full bureaucratic might of the federal hacks hits to FUBAR the medical system as it exists now in this country (or as it existed on Saturday night).
Also attended the blogmeet yesterday. Mr. B and I took a guest who was just amazed, even though we told him that it was the smartest, funniest, and most informed group (on just about any topic) that you could ever want to be a part of. Roberta X has the details (linked above), but it was great to see folks we'd already met and to have the opportunity to meet some new ones!
