Between reading (finally!) the bleak The Road, the Wall Street screw-ups, the Palin factor, a pile of debt, and a truck that refuses to brake, I have not been able to do much but scowl at other scowlers on the bus, go to work, and scowl again on the way home.
But here's something that made me smile. It's been surging around the Internet, but I'm posting it anyway: donate $10 to Planned Parenthood in Sarah Palin's name, and she will receive a postcard that lets her know we're thinking about her.
Go to PP's website, click on "donate" and choose to donate in honor of someone else. It will ask for that person's name and address, so input this: Sarah Palin, Alaska State Capitol Building, P.O. Box 110001, Juneau, AK 99811-0001. OR McCain Campaign Headquarters, 1235 W. Clark St., Arlington, VA 22202.
