“May have been the losing side. Still not convinced it was the wrong one.”

"This report is maybe 12-years-old. Parliament buried it, and it stayed buried till River dug it up. This is what they feared she knew. And they were right to fear because there's a whole universe of folk who are gonna know it, too. They're gonna see it. Somebody has to speak for these people. You all got on this boat for different reasons, but you all come to the same place. So now I'm asking more of you than I have before. Maybe all. Sure as I know anything I know this, they will try again. Maybe on another world, maybe on this very ground swept clean. A year from now, 10, they'll swing back to the belief that they can make people . . . better. And I do not hold to that. So no more running. I aim to misbehave." ~ Captain Malcom Reynolds

Today's Lessons

From the visit to the VA:

  • - Take a longer book next time, which I should have thought about in advance knowing how far I was through this one already.
  • - Don't let the med school student do the blood draw, the crusty old phlebotomists are MUCH better.
  • - Despite everything else I'm still incredibly blessed to have come through my service with as few problems as I have, and the fact I can drive to my appointment and walk in and out is something I will always be grateful for.

Thank you for posting this! It made me stick an extra book into my purse today before going to the DMV...and I needed two books before my visit there was through!
