I noticed that when I posted, but if I had fixed it, it wouldn't have been what was in my copy buffer. It doesn't matter. I was adding comments to my example code for a student who missed class. I was typing as quickly as possible.

5. LOL ! Ted Kennedy's healthcare plan. I'm WAY boring.
http://www.commondreams.org/views05/0112-37.htm

Sadly, in America today, the miracles of modern medicine are too often the province only of the wealthy. We need a new guarantee for the years ahead that the cost of these life-saving treatments and cures will not be beyond the reach of the vast majority of the American people.

An essential part of our progressive vision is an America where no citizen of any age fears the cost of health care, and no employer refuses to create new jobs or cuts back on current jobs because of the high cost of providing health insurance.

The answer is Medicare, whose 40th birthday we will celebrate in July. I propose that as a 40th birthday gift to the American people, we expand Medicare over the next decade to cover every citizen - from birth to the end of life.

It's no secret that America is still dearly in love with Medicare. Administrative costs are low. Patients' satisfaction is high. Unlike with many private insurers, they can still choose their doctor and their hospital.

For those who prefer private insurance, we will offer comparable coverage under the same range of private insurance plans already available to Congress. I can think of nothing more cynical or hypocritical than a Member of Congress who gives a speech denouncing health care for all, then goes to his doctor for a visit paid for by the Federal Employees Health Benefit Plan.

I call this approach Medicare for All, because it will free all Americans from the fear of crippling medical expenses and enable them to seek the best possible care when illness strikes.

The battle to achieve Medicare for All will not be easy. Powerful interests will strongly oppose it, because they profit immensely from the status quo. Right wing forces will unleash false attack ads ranting against socialized medicine and government-run health care.

But those attacks are a generation out of date - retreads of the failed campaign that delayed Medicare in the 1950s and 1960s. Today, we are immunized against such attacks by the obvious success of Medicare. It is long past time to extend that success to all.

13. Okay...
As river gets closer, erosion threatens their peaceful rest
Robert Franklin, Star Tribune

At Big Bend Lutheran Church in western Minnesota, the parishioners who have slipped away to their eternal reward outnumber the living. Now, the living are working to ensure that those in the churchyard cemetery don't slip into the Chippewa River.

In the past few years, the river has undercut the 55-foot-high bluff where the cemetery sits, toppling trees, closing a small road and leaving some graves only about 20 feet from the precipice. Two graves about 15 feet from the edge were moved last spring.

And, yes, the problem has become a federal case.

A water bill signed by President Bush a week ago appropriates $250,000 to the Army Corps of Engineers to reinforce 900 feet of stream bank along the cemetery in the hamlet of Hagan, about 15 miles north of Montevideo. The project will cost about $500,000, with contributions from the state and local governments and the church.

Work on creating the artificial shoreline could be done next year.

Big Bend Lutheran, with about 420 baptized members, has been seeking help for years. Now, with action by Congress and the president, "this time, fortune and the Lord are with us," said the pastor, the Rev. David DeMars.

"These aren't just graves," said DeMars, who has been pastor of the 125-year-old church for nearly five years. "These are people that tell a story" -- early Norwegian settlers, farmers, storekeepers, veterans of nearly every major military action from the Civil War on.

'97 and '01 floods

All 741 graves in the cemetery are within about 150 feet of the bluff's edge, he said. In floods of 1997 and 2001, water rushing down the winding river scoured into the bluff on the outside of a bend.

The Army Corps said more than 130 graves are in immediate danger. The dropoff is "something so steep you wouldn't want to walk it," said Richard Bjornjeld, a retired farmer who leads the church's "Riverbank Committee."

"It could be that big chunks of that could slough off at any time," said Bjornjeld, who added that, with parents, grandparents and great-grandparents, "I've got so many people in there I couldn't even begin to count how many."

To correct the problem, he added, "being a small congregation, we couldn't afford a project like that."

Most graves near the river are older ones, DeMars said, but some are less than 10 years old and some vacant gravesites belong to current members. Protecting the graves gives peace of mind to the community and families, he said, and "the congregation certainly has a responsibility to those family members who have placed their loved ones there in good faith."

'You don't just go move graves'

A study showed that it would have cost $1.5 million to move the cemetery, what with land acquisition, surveying, moving and legal costs, contacting family members and legally required security.

"You don't just go move graves," Bjornjeld said. "It's a very complicated process."

The church has raised nearly all of its $70,000 share of the project through memorials and donations from local businesses and individuals across the country, DeMars said. The Corps has already fronted study money, and about $85,000 will come from the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.

Support has come from the local congressman, Democrat Collin Peterson, and from the state's U.S. senators; the Corps, the DNR and Chippewa and Swift counties, the pastor said.

Even Montevideo, which got only 10 percent of the $6 million it sought from the congressional water bill for a big flood control project, is supportive, said City Manager Steve Jones.

The Big Bend cemetery is "an important part of who we are out here. We'd hate to see it disappear."

I've been working on my NBA Excel workbooks while watching the Jets/Saints football game. That's just a bloated formula asking the workbook to decipher whether the game was at home or on the road, based on my description in an earlier column.
