had one of those situations; you know the ones. the ones that provoke a real angry response. but instead, today, i decided to slant it. to take the high road. it struck me as so whacky ... i just burst out laughing. appealing to the funny bone defused the entire thing. one needs a bountiful sense of the ridiculous sometimes to maintain mental health.

ny times: the bush administration wants to relax regulations governing nursing homes. let's call it deregulation, please. once again, do we want the industry policing itself? how many times do we have to repeat the same mistake ... ?
