It was a dark day for me. one day I hated.

Wow, that would be depressing. Sorry I prompted that memory!

The history of mental institutions in the U.S. demonstrates over and over again that good intentions can be quickly undone by ignorance and inadequate budgets.

Hope all is well up there in snowy Canada. (Wait, what am I saying? We've had three times the normal amount of snow so far here in Maryland, with much more expected tomorrow night…)
