Friday Peace Vigil, Youngstown, OH, and surrounding area:

Friday, November 18, 2011
4:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.
Broadway St. & 5th Ave.

Ray Nakley (330-506-1999) and Ron Dull (330-518-9881) will hold their weekly Peace Vigil this Friday, November 18, from 4:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m., at the corner of Broadway St. & 5th Ave., Youngstown, OH. They invite anyone who is interested in showing their support for ending conflict in the world to join them. Hold out positive thoughts for that!

This week:

Whoa! Just when we think we’ve got our medical insurance crazy quilt all sewed up, another strip of red tape rears its ugly head. How’s that for a totally mixed-up metaphor?!

I’d hoped to finish and post my blog article on the Medicare maze this week--until we got some letters showing two more problems, not with the government aspect of the puzzle but with one of the corporate players in the game. In fact, when I do put the finishing touches on that article, I plan to emphasize the fact that the insurance and drug company lobbies are keeping the process so messy that as much as the government agency tries to keep up with it, even they can’t be aware of all the problems we’ll have to face. That’s not only shameful, it’s a complete waste of time, money, and energy, both physical and psychological. So, as soon as we iron out this latest wrinkle, I do plan to tidy up that article and post it for everyone right here and on my Facebook and Twitter accounts. Watch for it!

Meanwhile, let’s all send out our most positive thoughts and, for those who are believers, prayers to support and benefit all those suffering in so many parts of the world!
