Last night my shoulder was so sore that I got almost no sleep, so all I have today is this article and the holiday article. I’m current with replies, however brief. Tomorrow appears routine.

Today’s took me 4:31(average 5:07). To do it, click here. How did you do?
From MoveOn:Here’s What Some In Congress Were Doing While Ignoring Our Pleas For Jobs
Choosing Republican rule is its own punishment.
From National Geographic: Speaking to a packed audience Wednesday morning in Geneva, CERN director general Rolf Heuer confirmed that two separate teams working at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) are more than 99 percent certain they’ve discovered the Higgs boson, aka the God particle—or at the least a brand-new particle exactly where they expected the Higgs to be.
The long-sought particle may complete the standard model of physics by explaining why objects in our universe have mass—and in so doing, why galaxies, planets, and even humans have any right to exist.
I suppose Republicans will now make a move to outlaw Physics, because the God particle does not justify hatred, dishonesty, and greed like Supply-side Jesus (not the real Jesus) does.
From Bend Bulletin: Campfires, fireworks and even lit cigarettes can spark wildfires. In the tinder-dry West, there is growing concern about the threat from guns.
This year, officials believe target shooting or other firearms use sparked at least 21 wildfires in Utah and nearly a dozen in Idaho. Shooting is also believed to have caused fires in Arizona, Nevada and New Mexico.
While I believe in the right to bear arms, I also believe that a shooting license could guarantee that an individual has had training in how to use guns safely. It’s not about taking away anyone’s guns, just like a drivers license takes away driving a car from only those who cannot demonstrate knowledge about vehicle safety.
