On a More Sobering Note…

Today I saw my father off to open heart surgery and at 5:30 he came out well.

Now begins the healing process, and I sincerely hope that he gets out of Robert Wood Johnson as swiftly as possible, without a hospital infection, and on the road to recovery.

The hardest part, for him, will be taking things easy for the next 6 months.

The hardest part, for the rest of the family, will be making sure that he’s taking things easy for the next 6 months. 🙂


“Deaths as Israel storms aid ship” or “Israel ‘intercepts Gaza flotilla'”?

I usually am not one to comment on politics here, but today I noticed something odd on BBC.

So which one is this BBC?

Are they conflicted about who to blame?

As I was navigating between articles there was of course coverage of the convoy to Gaza intercepted by Israel I noticed that in the “Most Popular Stories Now” list that the article’s title swapped back and forth a few times as I continued to navigate through the site.

Both titles led to the same article entitled “Deaths as Israeli forces storm Gaza aid ship.”

I wonder if there’s a conflict in the BBC office over how to cast whose fault this disaster is.
