      Congrats on first, MightyPamela!

        Hi Jacqueline, I’m not able to keep up with the threads do to all my work, but I was wondering if your son had his surgery and, if so, if he is recovering, steadily.

          Bob – Thanks for asking, once again.

          Executive Summary (Ha!): He is doing superbly, already regaining his strength after a gruesome operation! God is good.

          The back story:

          He had his surgery on Tuesday (I think you read before that his oncologist had declared him cancer free on Monday, when discussing results of brain MRI and full body PET Scan to confirm that, beyond addressing the original lung cancer – yeehaw!).

          Because he was quickly able to manage his pain, he was discharged late afternoon on Wednesday! Slept very well last night, and had a first daily visit from his home health nurse today – to repack the dressing after the Eloesser Flap he had on Tuesday). (It’s a teaching hospital, so we have photos of the five students who watched them clean the wound yesterday in his hospital room – and he said at the operation itself, it was a packed house in the O.R.)

          Instead of going back in a month for the final surgery and to be worked on by the plastic surgeon, that actually will be handled in six months. So, it’s quite the ordeal.

          We’re pretty much overjoyed.

    1st world problem

    No-one ever tells me I’m back there talking to myself.

    And look at how everyone is smiling whenever they are with PBO and/or Flotus. That’s what I need – another visit from PBO – especially now the idjit who was PM when he last flew in has gone.

    Ugly and hate filled racism.

    • September 17, 2015 at 8:26 pm

      Donald Trump supporters are racists bigots and some are idiots too. Get rid of Mexicans, get rid of Muslims, I know they want to get rid of blacks. These racists white folks want to make America White Again.

    • September 17, 2015 at 8:39 pm

      And they have the audacity to call President Obama a “divider.”

      • September 17, 2015 at 9:12 pm

        It reminded me of that old woman at John McCain town hall meeting saying the exact same thing that racists bigot were saying to Donald Trump. With these racists everything wrong with this country is Obama’s fault. I remember these people talking about Obama remaining in Rev. Wright’s christian church for twenty years, so a Muslim attended a christian church for twenty years.

    • September 17, 2015 at 9:11 pm

      I hate to say it…

      But remember that it took a tragedy to finally discredit Sarah Palin , and stop the media infatuation with her ?

      Trump is Sarah Palin on steroids. Making hate mainstream is NOT GOOD. I’m worried. We’ve already seen all sorts of ugly incidents Hate speech, harassment, violence. The situation is becoming explosive.

      Jeff, this disgusting man has become so bloated with his own self importance, he will say anything, no matter how vile, to keep himself in the limelight. I hope every Muslim American voter takes note of this vileness and recognizes that Trump is a true reflection of the deep seated bigotry that defines the Republican Party.

      Trump seemed to agree that after the Mexicans, next we will deport the Muslims.
      Pretty unbelievable.

        Trump didn’t disagree with the idiot asking the question! ( WAS there a question in there somewhere?? ) These bigots are unhinged…and every one of these GOP game show wannabes are playing with fire and lying their fool asses off! Shame on the networks! Same on these candidates! Pathetic.

    Time for me to issue a correction.
    I said incorrectly, based on not having watched the debate, just hearing the coverage later, that nobody on the stage could name an American woman to grace the new $10 bill.

    Several participants Did name American women and Rand Paul named my suggestion Susan B. Anthony and someone else said Clara Barton.
    The coverage I’d heard mentioned only Margaret Thatcher–(British) and Mother Teresa.

    i need to be more careful about getting all the info before commenting. Sorry, TOD.

    Trump talks about ethnic cleansing and the media frames it all about PBO’s citizenship. Sad and pathetic.

    OMG! Anyone else watching this interview CH is doing with the cop from Irving, TX? NOTHING he is saying makes any sense. It’s still the “Muslim” student at fault. He refuses to at it they did anything wrong. Sigh……… CH was clearly p—– at end of interview.

    As each hour of each day passes, it becomes ever more obvious why so much is riding on whether VP Biden will grace us by campaigning for the Presidency ….
