Cuando era niña mi papá me enseñó una de las lecciones más imporantes que hasta el día de hoy llevo conmigo—el saludo a mano, y bien firme. Sin duda, esa es una de las primeras cosas que se enseñan a los niños desde pequeñitos. Cuantas veces no hemos visto a un papa decirle a su pequeño hijo, “Mijo, saluda,” y el niño apenado, le da la mano a la persona que conoce por primera vez.

Plowing through hours at a Fresno County Board of Supervisors meeting waiting for weird developments to occur (see blog posting "A 3 to 2 vote vs. reality"), sometimes other memorable moments occur.

At the Dec. 4 meeting, two items caught my attention. First there were impassioned pleas by supporters of two social services agencies that the board spare them from funding cuts. FIRM (Fresno Interdenominational Refugee Ministries) and Lao Family successfully staved off the cuts, with the board instructing staff to trim money from other groups to sustain those two.

In what other profession is it acceptable and actually expected by our customers to be asked: "when was the last time you had a bowel movement?" Oh boy! And not only do we want to know "when" we want to know specifics; color, consistency, and frequency for gosh sakes! Now, we not only ask this on admission, but we keep asking it during the hospitalization!

Back in the days of Charles Dickens, people were tossed into prison for unpaid debts. And, illogically, they were forced to stay there until somebody came up with the money.

Isn't "more, better"? Why do we need to follow the guidelines if one more player on the field would give us an advantage and help us to score? Why do we need to follow the basics and fundamentals, aren't there times when you should "bend the rules"?

"Now" means hitting the brakes when a dumb schmo cuts you off on the 180/168 merge. "Now" means saying "I do" or running away from nuptials. "Now" means swinging the bat instead of watching as a third strike  whizzes by.
