A Tosa resident since 1991, Christine walks the dog, cooks but avoids housework, writes and reads, and enjoys the company of friends and strangers. Her job takes her around the state, learning about people's health. A Quaker (no, they don't wear blue hats or sell oatmeal or motor oil), she has been known to stand on both sides of the political and philosophic fence at the same time, which is very uncomfortable when you think about it. She writes about pretty much whatever stops in to visit her busy mind at the moment. One reader described her as "incredibly opinionated but not judgmental." That sounds like a good thing to strive for!
Yesterday's Dilbert in the Journal Sentinel really got it right.

So far the worst part is this conversation.
Wait 'til you hear my tough love speech.
I checked the on-line version of the hardcopy paper to see if I could pinch it to reproduce here, but it's not in that version. Another good reason to buy the paper and read online. (We've talked before about how it's a deeper and richer experience to do both than to do either alone.)
And speaking of job losses and such, even the New York Times is teetering. Just who do we think will bring us these nifty free information sites if the newspapers that support them crash?
When you get serious about buying locally to support the community you live in and your neighbors who live there with you, make sure you include the newspaper.
No bribes (or even subtle hints) were involved in bringing you this message.
