Yes, it's been a long hiatus. In the past six months, I experienced one of those "I can't have it all or DO nearly it all, so I'd better kick fanny with what's within my power."

I'm glad I did. Today Mom's in remission and BlogHer has had a good year.
So I'm getting back to the blogging thang here, to supplement my BlogHer blog. But I am appalled and heartbroken to have to start my return with this piece about a man who worked his entire life to protect a woman's right to choose:
