Pre-Bed Thoughts

From The Department Of Fuller Disclosure Department: Today I actually choked up at a line on the last page of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, a line about being happily surprised that a wedding's still going on after bad, bad things happen. And you know, I read yesterday about the delayed wedding for a couple forced out of New Orleans. My first great post-Sept. 11th memory was going to a wedding the following Saturday. And I’ve been “a wedding junkie” (my phrase) since ’99.

I guess I’ll make this a general shout-out to Good Things Happening. Keep happening, could ya?
