BBC NEWS | Health | Women lose embryo battle

It amazes me how the decision is based upon the parents "wishes" when frankly, their wish to make a child was made when they made the child. Why is it that a human person (an embryo, yes, but a human person) is put to death because one parent changed their mind after the fact? Amazing!

Hawthorne Crime Statistics and Crime Data (Hawthorne, CA)

Just another reason to look stern when I'm walking around in my neighborhood. Hawthorne (at least in 2001) was higher than the national average in forcible rapes, robberies, aggravated assaults, and vehicle thefts (this one at least is not an issue--I have no car). The good news is that in overall crime stats we're better than the national average. That's cool.

SUNDAY DINNER (you know, the noon meal)

Joe's Crab Shack

Went to Joe's Crab Shack with the YAM students yesterday. I had a Dungeness and Snow Crab combo special. Ate it gloriously with my hands--cracker, bib, and all. Eating crab is very nearly a worship experience (and, yes, I mean the Maker, not the crab). Can't wait to go again.
Art work: Bringing freeway mural back to life

I used to pass this mural on my way to BOLD classes in Inglewood. I am pleased that they are restoring it, but I do wonder where they will put it. There's even a picture of some Biola runners. Fairly cool.
