Submitted my retirement/resignation letter today!

Nursing for 34 years, working since 15, have always had to depend on myself. Am 63 and love nursing but is becoming physically and mentally exhausting. Applying for union pension and will have SS. Terrified, and it has taken months of agony to make this decision. I had to struggle with subconscious feeling I will die/starve in poverty if I am not working, I understand now it is coming from growing up poor. I know now I will be just fine. Time to enjoy life, travel, my grandkids. Our pension does not have any health insurance benefits, so will probably get something from ACA until Medicare. I was going to wait until I was medicare age but my grandkids are growing up so fast, I don't want to lose 2 more years.

The Heartbeat of Democracy

Amazing video of de-escalation at MoKaBe Coffeshop in Ferguson last night. It was a designated "safe place" on private property. However police in riot gear followed them and surrounded the building and would not let them leave. There were arrests, and tear gas. It was very very tense, until the Rev. Sekou took charge.

Confused about Mike Brown head wound

I remain puzzled by how Mike Brown sustained this final and fatal wound. If the vertex of scalp is on the top of the head, and it had a downward path, a 6'4" Brown would have to be at a 90 degree angle if he was "charging" at Wilson, like he says. If Brown already had a wound to his chest, how can this be possible, to run at this angle to get a wound of the top of his head, it defies the laws of physics. I think with a chest wound, the body doubles over, and he was stumbling, or already on his knees.
From the PDF of Mike Brown autopsy, I don't know how to copy for here, so paraphrasing: #1 Gunshot entrance wound of the vertex of the scalp......near midline of vertex of the head ..The path of this shot is downward and rightward.

here is the link to document in PDF
