My sentiments exactly, except for the badmouthing of kale, the wonder-veg.

Are genetic tests available to people without health insurance? What about those with high deductibles who have to shell out $3000 for this particular test? Great that testing is available. Not so great that health care is not affordable.

Thanks for this piece, it's inspiring, and so is your mom! We have a '90 Westphalia and feel the same way about it--there's nothing comparable to a VW camper out there, and every time we think about selling it, we end up realizing it would be a big mistake. Cory Motors takes care of ours, too. Just replaced the transmission, after 150,000 miles.

Hope your mom is able to keep it and herself going strong til it's 50. Write the book, definitely....

Stomach "flu" is not flu, the headline is kind of misleading.

So great to read this. Thank you, Ms. Hanson.

Thank you for sharing your memory, Ms. Johnson, I was touched by it. My history is similar, and my experience of the trails as well. But I'm glad so many people enjoy the trails now, and trust that the contact with what is still wild will have the same effect on them that it has had in my life.

I'm still hiking, like you. Cautious now crossing creeks and going downhill when trails are slippery, grateful for the hiking poles I can use now--and also for the cell phone, in case of a serious mishap. Falls have more serious consequences, bones are more brittle, knees creak and hips ache, healing is slow. But just now, the ceanothus and the mountain sunflowers and all the rest make those issues trivial. May you continue to hike.

I hope you have found it in your heart to forgive that jogger by now, for your own heart's sake, not his. One day he too will be older and not so agile and in need of a stranger's hand.

It's not the buildings' fault that any of those things happened. It doesn't seem right to only give protection to buildings with happy pasts.

The designation that I still scratch my head over is the water treatment building at the old Sheffield Reservoir site. Ugggg-ly!

Recent article by Jane Mayer in the New Yorker about Obama's reluctance to schmooze with billionaires also discussing the effect of SuperPacs and these 501-c4 organizations that don't have to reveal who their donors are:
Author Mayer was also interviewed on Fresh Air last week. Frightening. Bravo to Jack Ucciferri.
