For an alternative to the hideous ideological approach of Wisconsin’s current governor, please consider http://www.wisconsinisus.org/.
My comment for the petition:
The choice is between caring and not caring for the less fortunate, between sharing and greed, between community and elitism, between a human society worth living in and mean-spirited selfishness. The Walker Budget stands for all the latter choices, is immoral, and is against life. The Values Budget is worth living for. Probably not perfect but nothing to be ashamed of.
Re. “old business”: Still neutropenic. Otherwise doing fine. Mindfulness still comes in handy.
