Hey - did anyone catch this story on the front page of the Star Tribune - “Federal agency may redefine abortion rules

Apparently the Feds are thinking that when a woman is raped rather than make sure she gets comprehensive medical care it is more important to make absolutely sure that the medical profession is comfortable providing her with comprehensive care. There is an amazing quote by House speaker Kelliher - about how such a change wouldn’t be in line with the thinking of most Minnesotans - hopefully at the capitol event there were people who revealed how outrageous this is…didn’t just comment on how it might play. As women’s security and hope for ever having a level playing field continues to erode….something tells me Franken won’t touch this topic…reproductive rights make Dems squirm.

Where does Norm Coleman stand on this? Does he agree with the Minnesota Family Council that Emergency Contraception for rape victims is an abortion?

Yorkshire Photos

I've got photos of scenes from the house we were staying at, and the Studley Royal Water Garden (about 1/2 mile away) on my flickr site.

Slideshows here and here.

People who are my list of friends and family can see the full sets (including the photos of family members). The general public will see the scenic pictures without people only.

If you want to be added as a friend to be able to see the photos, please contact me at: with subject line: "Add Me to Flickr".

I will be adding more photos as I get time.
