Got a Few Things on my Mind
So here goes:
I'm peeved at those who are twisting this thing around. One news source noted that the dentist made a contribution to the Romney campaign. What the hamfat (as my late mother was wont to say) does that have to do with anything? And others are posting outrage that people are grieving the lion when they should be campaigning against Planned Parenthood. Hello? And other details of the dentist's life, details that normally wouldn't be known by his neighbors much less the entire literate world, are coming to light, details that don't have anything to do with a great big error in judgment vis-a-vis hunting. Come on, people: Focus!
In my work as a hospital chaplain, there is not a shift that goes by that I do not interact with a police officer or two. Or more. Patients that come into the hospital as Trauma cases are often accompanied by police officers. Who are without exception, professional, courteous, helpful, concerned, compassionate, clear-thinking men and women. From several different police departments. I cannot say enough good about my interactions with these officers. I'm well aware that there have been some bad apples in the news. But these are definitely the exceptions, not the norm.
Okay. I feel a little better now. I'll get back to Alaska in the next post. Seriously.
