Still Miss You, Momma

Short post on BW. Today was the 6th month anniversary of my momma's passing. I was busy most of the day and I knew I would be. A good thing, but it doesn't mean that I missed her any less. It means that I'm still grieving, but working through the stages of grief as I go along.

One thing I know is that she would have been so disappointed to hear BS about bloggers and the accusations about EE being pseudonymous with the alias "Cherubim", I invite any of those folks to come here.

It appears Eugene Robinson quit circulating the NY Post rumors. Too bad I didn't keep those on my hard drive.

BW to Celebrate 5 years

Benny's World just turned 5 a few days ago. Here's the first post. I used to write more substantively then. Today, we're older, more relaxed.

We'll have a cake and open house for JRE-like (meaning policies, not personal lives) Dems soon.

This week, expect a special comment somewhere about the malicious comments coming against EE which I believe are unfounded. It's not as much about the comments is that there seems to be a perpetual silly season in which one former staffer's comments are more important to the media than EE's intelligent work or advocacy for health care reform, unless one is Keith Olberman or Rachel Maddow.

Stay tuned. Meantime, I'm certain the Edwardses prefer that the Panthers win over the Dallas Cowboys. It's a close contest, so may the best team win. Pokes ahead though 21-7, but the Panthers are still in this game. Meantime, my spouse thinks I'll have a sore throat from my passion in hollerin' for the Cowboys.

Rumors from Iowa

I heard a rumor today from two good Iowans that Roxanne Conlin may consider a bid for the Senate next year.

I met Roxanne in 2004 when she held a meet and greet in her office for JRE before he was to speak at the Iowa Dems Convention. She is a pootie (meaning she loves cats) person and rescues them. It was a great event, and it was the venue where I first met JRE--and many good people, such as Im4JRE, Nanny, etc. JRE got all of the Dems fired up at the convention. He became the VP candidate for John Kerry, which is what many of us wanted.

If she does decide to run, I will make a trip to Iowa to help her out as she is a true blue Dem. I'm sick of Republicans who don't care about our health care issues and are just flat out partisan for AIG types.
