Sad Monday

Christopher Reeve has passed away. Our "Superman" experienced heart failure Saturday and slipped into a coma, then died yesterday at the age of 52. Reeve turned personal tragedy into a public crusade, becoming the nation's most recognizable spokesman for spinal cord research. After his riding accident 9 years ago he was paralyzed and told he would never walk again. In the past several years he had made outstanding strides to get movement into some areas of his lower body and learn to breath on his own. We will surely mourne his passing and pray that others continue to make progress on the front of spinal injury options and stem cell research.

In other news, it is also a sad day for Houston sports fans as the Astros failed to send the Braves packing last night. Although there is still hope for tonight's game to win the chance to move on to St. Louis and face the Cardinals for the National League Championship, it is going to be a nail-biter to say the very least. In football, the Texans also failed to come through in the clutch against Minnesota. After a miserable first half, the Texans made an effort to catch up and tie the game sending it into overtime. However, they couldn't keep the Viking's offense grounded.

Did anyone watch the presidential debate on Friday night? It is no wonder that the majority of voters have not changed their stance after the last two debates. Both candidates keep making the same mistakes. Bush keeps acting like a Goober and not only evading some questions, but downright changing the subject to avoid admitting mistakes. While Kerry keeps missing opportunities to shine with his own plans, spending too much time knocking the president and his decisions.

So, is there any good news?

Certainly! It is much cooler this week as the temperature stays in the low to mid 80s making Houstonians feel like Fall might actually make it.

Our Houston Rockets did beat the Miami Heat in the pre-season opener, pitting Yao Ming against new Heat center Shaquille O'Neal.

And even though those was some sad news, we do look forward to life. Bloggers keep blogging and sharing a bit of ourselves with the world!!

Into the walls
Jump jump out of time
Fall fall fall fall
Out of the sky
Cover my face as the animals cry"

I hope Ken Caminiti's death does not bring them down and they are able to play a good game. I really hope they kick some Brave butt. Go Astros!!

Elections...well, I was thinking of picketing because of the lack of qualified candidates, but decided against it. I will just pick someone else in the ballot. I don't like either candidate. We need more options.

It is a sad day. But, Christopher Reeves really made a difference in his life. A big difference, beyond being Superman. That is something! He will be missed, but he will always be remembered for sharing hope and strength.

On another subject, I went to the movies this weekend and saw a preview that made me think of you. It was for a movie called White Noise, with Michael Keaten. Looks great! If you haven't heard of it, you should look it up.

Be prepared for the next galveston hurricane or find another one that's similar. As the Boy Scouts say: "Be Prepared"!
