**Vibes for Crewleader and her brother**

I was in touch with Crewleader last night; her brother is very ill. This will probably be his last Christmas, and he's spending it with her.

She's taking some time off from DU in order to prepare things for him, so we won't see her for a while.

I know I greatly appreciate her daily offerings and I understand the pressure and grief she's laboring under right now...

I wanted to show my support to her, and then I thought many of you would like to do that too...

So, my dear Crewleader, this post is for you! You're in my thoughts, as is your beloved brother. I hope you'll have a wonderful Christmastime with him...

Blessings on you both!

****WCGreen Update --Sunday December 7, 2014****

From his wife:

Another Christopher Green update:

First of all, Buckeyes rule! Wisconsin was squished underneath the shoes of Cardale Jones and the other Bucs!

Chris and I enjoyed Thanksgiving with a dinner of Honey Baked Ham chicken breast, Heinins' dressing, peas, Stouffers' potatoes and scalloped apples for dessert. Yum! Chris' usual eating very little changed to eating more.

I've been decorating for Christmas and will post pics later.

Unfortunately, Chris had a lot of trouble breathing while he was on the respirator last week. There were other problems as well, so he was moved to the ICU. After the docs performed a bronchoscopy and cleaned out some very thick mucus, Chris is back talking and breathing without the respirator for the majority of the day. Hopefully, Chris moves back to his room soon.

These two pics are of Chris ready for the Browns' game. Go Browns!

This link I've posted looks bizarre, but it does work. READ IT. It matters, even now...

****WCGreen Update --Sunday November 23, 2014****

From his wife:

A Christopher Green update:

I have wanted to make this post for a couple weeks, but Chris' computer with the new keyboard had a non-working space bar.

Chris wound up receiving 51 physical birthday cards and I displayed them all.I also decided he should have a birthday month, so we are keeping all of the decor up until the day after Thanksgiving. Then, it's decorate for Christmas, I will post more pictures when it is done. For now, here are more pictures of Chris' birthday. I started at the window and went clockwise.

Today's LA Times: Doyle McManus on a Bernie Sanders candidacy:

~~snip~~

But does Sanders really think his untrammeled populism can win him the nomination, much less a general election?

“I'm running to win,” he insists. “It won't be just an educational campaign.”

When pressed, however, he acknowledges that he thinks even a losing campaign would be a good thing because of its potential to bring more attention to his ideas, widen the national debate and put pressure on Hillary Rodham Clinton or any other eventual Democratic nominee.

Win or lose, Sanders will fill a familiar role if he decides to run. Democratic presidential primaries almost always include at least one populist or quasi-populist candidate on the left. In 2008, it was John Edwards. In 2004, it was Howard Dean. In 1992, it was California's own Jerry Brown. And none of them won the nomination.

This year, there could be three candidates running to the left of Clinton. In addition to Sanders, there might be Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley (who says he's running, but hasn't succeeded in defining much of a theme yet) and Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, who spent most of the summer saying she wouldn't run, but recently modified that to “I don't think so.”

What Harry Truman had to say about phony Democrats vs genuine Republicans: It's worth remembering.

The people don't want a phony Democrat. If it's a choice between a genuine Republican, and a Republican in Democratic clothing, the people will choose the genuine article, every time; that is, they will take a Republican before they will a phony Democrat...

I believe the Democrats (at the national level, anyway) are behaving like the phony Democrats Truman was referring to.

Your thoughts?
