This space will be quiet for the next few days, as this morning has brought the sad news that my grandmother, Helen Frances Jones, has passed away. She was a kind and loving lady, but also One Tough Cookie. She will be greatly missed.
So I’m off to ball my eyes out for a few hours, before tending to the business of getting her back with my granddaddy, where she belongs. I’ll see y’all next week.
I don't think I'll be spending much time with the papers today. I'm not sure I can stomach all of the "Why do they hate us?" and "let's examine the root causes of terrorism...poverty, blah, blah, blah, Western injustice, blah, blah, blah, it's all our fault, blah, blah, blah" in response to the bombing in Bali. The Indy's started with it already (found at Public Interest). Anything less than "let's find the people responsible and reduce them to grease spots" is just going to piss me off.
