Bill Cosby -- Role Model and Educator

It appears that Bill Cosby is accused of sexual misconduct, a year ago. His accuser went to Canada before reporting the alleged abuse. Don't all cowards go to Canada?

The accuser is not named...she doesn't have the courage to even tell her name; she waited a year to accuse.

Does this make sense? It surely doesn't, to me! Unless you suspect that this un-named woman wants money or notarity.

In this day and time, it appears that one of the tremendous pleasure of many people is to shoot down, through words, the great people of the present time...and those of the past, as well.

This man has done more for Black people in America than others who claim to do much. He is an icon for family values, for good clean humor, and for the productive, free American way of life.

Shame on this un-named woman...and all others who endeavor to injure, through words, those people who are making a positive difference in the lives of those around them.

Caremark is at the bottom involving service to the patient!

Since we, retired Texas teachers..or TRS, have been turned over to Caremark the level of care given us has plummeted. Caremark often does not accept a doctor's perscriptions unless they are called in numerous times. Every time I have called, rather than emailed, I have found "helpers" who refuse to help with the attitude that they simply cannot do whatever it is I need. I resent that TRS is being handled by Caremark in this cavalier fashion. It appears that neither the state nor Caremark give a fig for the the health and wellbeing of the patients they "serve".

The Roman Catholic Church will, January 23, bury fetal remains

Good for the Roman Catholics! They will, Sunday in Denver, bury the ashes of 1,000 aborted fetuses to mark the 32nd anniversary of Roe vs. Wade. Quoting from Newsday.net, "LaVelle said Sunday's ceremony would involve the remains of between 600 and 1,000 aborted fetuses from November 2003 through and November 2004. She said the parish has held unannounced burials twice a year since 2001, but the parish priest agreed to make the burial public this year.

"'Abortion can be a real controversial issue, but in my eyes and the eyes of people doing this in our church, we believe these babies deserve the dignity of a proper burial,' LaVelle said."

Susan LaVelle is a parish volunteer for the Church of the Sacred Heart of Mary in Denver.

Christianity was in Washington yesterday

President Bush's inauguration was filled with the Spirit of God. From Whitley Phelps' rendition of Heal Our Land and Guy Hovis' Let the Eagle Soar to Susan Graham's Bless This House, our nation witnessed what our Founding Fathers had proclaimed: this is one nation, under God, with freedom and justice for all. Both President Bush and Vice-President Cheney were sworn in with their hands on their respective family's Bible.

Not only did the President's speech contain the word freedom 27 times, but at one point he noted "
Americans at our best value the life we see in one another and must always remember that even the unwanted have worth." I chose to hear in that the cry to oppose abortion!

There were many prayers said during the inauguration and the events preceeding and following it. The band played God of Our Fathers, and the Reverend Kerby John Calwell evoked Jesus Christ to bless the nation.

President Bush's Address was said, by commentators, to be the most powerful an American president has given, a dazzling speech, in the likeness of Abraham Lincoln, who Bush quoted.

To all this I can only add: God is blessing American! We must keep God in us, as Americans, if we are to retain the the freedom about which the President spoke.
