Murder is happening under our very noses by the state of Georgia as we speak.

A Mother's Story

Martina Davis-Correia, sister of condemned man Troy Davis, speaks about her brother.

Troy is scheduled to die in three days for a crime he did not commit--please pray that the State of Georgia does not follow through with their crime!

Two things to write about today

First, the original Hippocratic oath:

I swear by Apollo, the healer, Asclepius, Hygieia, and Panacea, and I take to witness all the gods, all the goddesses, to keep according to my ability and my judgment, the following Oath and agreement:

To consider dear to me, as my parents, him who taught me this art; to live in common with him and, if necessary, to share my goods with him; To look upon his children as my own brothers, to teach them this art.

I will prescribe regimens for the good of my patients according to my ability and my judgment and never do harm to anyone.

I will not give a lethal drug to anyone if I am asked, nor will I advise such a plan; and similarly I will not give a woman a pessary to cause an abortion.

But I will preserve the purity of my life and my arts.

I will not cut for stone, even for patients in whom the disease is manifest; I will leave this operation to be performed by practitioners, specialists in this art.

In every house where I come I will enter only for the good of my patients, keeping myself far from all intentional ill-doing and all seduction and especially from the pleasures of love with women or with men, be they free or slaves.

All that may come to my knowledge in the exercise of my profession or in daily commerce with men, which ought not to be spread abroad, I will keep secret and will never reveal.

If I keep this oath faithfully, may I enjoy my life and practice my art, respected by all men and in all times; but if I swerve from it or violate it, may the reverse be my lot.

Funny how we forget that bolded part as doctors now regularly perform abortions, give lethal drugs to the terminally ill on request, and are present at executions.

Second: Georgia will execute an innocent man in 10 days. Please join me in signing the petition to stop it, this cannot be allowed to happen!

Wow...bad taste ahead...

I know that here in the PNW we tend to take a casual attitude towards religion, but this is ridiculous.

No Hooters shirts in Mass, please.

Really now, folks...try to have at least a little respect for whatever religious house you're in!
