Family Reunion by Laverne Ross

Wow! This fall has certainly been an extremely busy one for this humble blogger. My Doctorate classes have picked up and hopefully will be over by December. Then its on to the Dissertation blocks.

Well that was a good feeling for my Angels until they ran into the Yankee wall and were sent home. Football season is at its halfway point and my Raiders still suck. To me the teams to beat are Indianapolis, New England, Pittsburgh and New Orleans.

Basketball season is finally here and the Lakers recieved their championship rings and has gone on to post a 6-1 record without Pau Gasol and Andrew Bynum. Another battle testing road awaits my team but in the end the Lakers will again come out on top. Yes, all you haters the Lakers will remain as NBA champions.

The Health Care Reform package passed the House on Saturday which is good. The bad is the last minute bullshit Abortion prohibiting package that was included with it. Just like chauvanistic men to want to control the reproductive rights of women. The timing comes as the twenty-fifth(or is it twenty-sixth?) anniversary of the Roe vs. Wade ruling that legalized abortion.

My thoughts and prayers go to the loved ones of the brave U.S. soldiers who lost their lives in the tragic shooting at Fort Hood.
