The thermometer here in mid-Michigan says it's really cold outside. Before my wife got the paper from the front porch, here's what I read online:
- Our Journey, a daily devotional from Walk in the Word and Radio Bible Class; today's was about how to not get discouraged. James McDonald writes based on 1 Kings 19 about Elijah and what he did to allow himself to get discouraged and then three things to get rid of it.
- Time magazine and their Persons of the Year, Bono, along with Bill and Melinda Gates; they were chosen for all the things they've done and are doing to make this a better world. I'm anxious to read the whole thing.
- Indy Star story about new Indiana law which requires hospitals to report a laundry list of medical mistakes. It's second state in the country to have such a law. I wonder how long it will be before a Michigan lawmakers tries to play copycat and introduces it here.
- Detroit Free Press advance story about today's final Detroit Lions game with the Cincinatti Bengals and the expected circus of unhappy fans. With all the hype about unhappy fans, I'm expecting a NFL game with a professional wrestling flavor. I might actually tune it in.
- Detroit News story about Detroit City Clerk Jackie Currie and how she's bypassing City Council accountability in spending more than $100,000 to defend herself against charges that she mismanaged local elections. Detroit is slipping further and further into a morass that seems inescapable.
