Several rainy days in a row here have made me somber and thoughtful. I don't know if I could survive living in Seattle or someplace where it rains all the time. I love sleeping on rainy days, but in general I don't enjoy them.
One of my former students dropped by today. He has a chronic health condition and I asked how he was doing on his meds. He said he is responding well, but he can't afford the latest round of pills, so can't make a doctor's appointment to get his latest injection. Our health care system is criminal. I'm totally behind Obama's health care bill.
