PD, best wishes that your eye injury improves. I myself injured my eye over a week ago, getting a cinder in my eye while walking to the subway. I have been to an ophthalmologist, and the medication has been making me whoozy and out of sorts. So easy to take for granted the gift of vision, along with the many other gifts we receive each moment.

Henry, thanks for the updates.
"failed to submit enough signatures to get on the ballot, "

Do we know the reason he failed to get enough signatures? Did the signature gathers not work hard enough or did the voters just not want him?

Apparently his campaign team simply screwed up. They filed without sending in enough signatures to withstand challenges, ended up 400 short. I've heard they had more & didn't send them in on time. The GAB (elections board) and a Dane County judge nixed his filing. The campaign manager was a Tommy Thompson guy -- no excuse for the screw up.

peter, it's not really an "injury" as such, I think. Apparently PVD is very common, especially as we get older. And it's not likely to get better, as I understand it. It's just something you learn to live with.

But yes, let us be glad for the blessing of sight.

PD, I have also suffered similar degradation to my good eye a year ago while losing even marginal vision in my bad eye about six years ago from a detached retina and the subsequent 100+ laser spot welds. Fortunately, I have a local optometrist on the island that is a 'failed engineer' and therefore a gadget freak so has all the toys to keep me on a trend line in case anything deteriorates further.

DoT;

I'm certainly pleased you finally have found purpose in life, albeit twisted and self-subjugating.

Nearly anything can be used to fill a vacuum......

Sara, in Reference to CA. I am a father of 7, grand father of 21, great grand father of 3. I have dealt with real life psychology all my life. Some formal schooling but most from the school of hard knocks..

IMO: The first time, while watching the news and they showed the vidio of CA laying on the floor, with Caylee sitting on her, I told my wife that Caylee had been abused. The child looked uncomfortable in that environment..look at the grip that Casey has on the young child's arm, look at the lack of a smile on Caylee face.. Caylee did not show trust and or comfort..that is my gut feeling..

Agent J. - That was my impression as well. The whole episode looked like it was for show. Caylee appeared as though she didn't understand what this person was doing. It certainly did not look like "play" to me.

I liked the way one person summed it up on Fox in the last couple of days. Caylee was an accessory to Casey, and Casey simply decided she didn't need that accessory in her wardrobe any more. Now there are reports that Casey is thinking of having another child. But that is only for Casey's benefit. Everything is about Casey, with no empathy for anyone else.

That's what narcissists do, right? Put on a show for the folks. But then, when nobody is looking, it's ok to leave the baby with some babysitter that doesn't exist, and go do what you want to do.
