Fox News has a new Affordable Care Act horror story.
They needed one because, so far, the stories they have presented have, for the most part, proven to be a little faulty when it came to facts and accuracy.
Mark your calendars for Earth Day next Tuesday, April 22, a day to commemorate the earth, celebrate green acts, raise awareness and work towards a more sustainable future. If you read my blog regularly, I imagine you already practice green acts. Earth Day is a good time to commit to adding new green habits.
What else can you do?
Adopt “meatless Mondays”. The meat industry is responsible for nearly one-fifth of man-made greenhouse gas emissions.
S Word Happening In Bourne
While most of Cape Cod gets rain, look what's happening in Sagamore, which is where the rain line set up. April 16th is pretty late for New England snow, and amazingly late for Cape Cod snow. Yet, here it is.

If you went down to Naimesh and Akku Patel’s 7-11 on Main Street and bought a scratch ticket that resulted in winnings of $1.8 million, that would be great, right?
What if, after scratching the ticket and expressing jubilation at your good fortune, you learned that there were strings attached to your windfall? What if those strings included inflicting pain and suffering on others?
That might change things.
Going back to Saint Ronald (let’s just ignore the many bad thing he did that messed up the country from raising taxes to Iran-Contra) Reagan, the law on the books requires any hospital receiving federal funds must treat anyone who comes into the Emergency Room whether or not they have insurance or the money to pay for treatment.

Spoiler Alert: Being incidental text meant to flesh out a biography on 20th century writer Thomas J. McSheey, this blog entry is not even remotely amusing except for perhaps a slight witticism in the third-to-last paragraph, which by my mentioning may keep you reading.
