Rather cute that the bush administration feels the need to save the terminally ill from themselves (Schiavo anyone?). Isn't the basic gist of the liberal ideology to save people from themselves: gun control, drug control (ooops that's a conservative agenda), social security, medicaid/medicare.
Sometimes I think the only major difference between a liberal and a conservative is which liberties/freedoms they consider sacred.
As I sit and glass, which is common for hunters out west, I have sort of quickly discovered something I never learned when I was younger.
In my youth I had enthusiasm and spirit. In my middle to advancing years I have creaky knees, arthritis, and I tire more easily than I used to. Where I used to sit on the cold hard ground I now look for that soft spot to sooth my tired muscles. That leads me to my tip.
Carry your soft spot with you!
In my pack I carry an air filled, ultralight, camping pad....
