musings, I guess

On the issue of whether a Muslim group should build a mosque two blocks from Ground Zero - "the people who committed those acts of terrorism on 9/11 were no more Muslims than the IRA terrorists were Catholics, besides there are bars and strip joints in lower Manhattan too." -Paul Begala
Did you know that cataract surgery is the most performed surgery in the world and the surgery with the highest success rate (over 97 percent)? I'm recovering fine although the right eye was a more involved surgery than the left eye, although it continues to get better every day. I'm trying to get used to reading glasses now. Don't think I'll need eyeglasses for driving though.
The view that our President is a secret Muslim appears to have taken hold of the American mind. According to a recent poll, one in five Americans is convinced of Barack Obama's Islamic faith. Personally, I don't care if he is a Muslim (I rather he not deny it if he is of Muslim faith), what scares me is organized religion of any kind, just gets too many people killed.

I'm with you all the way on your post.

As for your eyes - I've told you how amazing I found life after cataract surgery! I even discovered some things were slightly different in color from what I had thought. Reading glasses are no big deal, but I found early on (confirmed by my eye doctor) that I needed different strengths for computer work vs. book reading. I picked a nerdy color for my computer glasses, which are 1/2 lower strength. It's second nature now.
