Because one person sent in a comment suggesting I should keep my political views to myself...I have been thinking about that...and have decided that the issues are too vital, too important, to stay silent.  I'm not the only children's author who feels that way. Check out Judy Blume's blog, for example, at http://judyblumeblog.blogspot.com/


or the list of over 1000 authors for children supporting Obama
 at http://www.aiforc.org/obama/thelist.html   I was going to copy the entire list here but it is simply too long.  

It consists of people who care deeply about children and what the future of this country holds for them. Many of them are names you know well.

Yes, you have to speak up for yourself. Remember that no one at the dissertation service site will speak for you so you have to do that yourself. Ultimately, it will benefit you greatly and that will help you with your career and your life.

Thank you for sharing the information! The idea of changing battery sounds better than waiting for the battery to recharging.

ESPN's Dan Le Betard conducted a stinging interview with MLB commissioner Rob Manfred on Wednesday,
grilling los angeles angels of anaheim jersers the commissioner on the details of the Miami Marlins sale to a group led by Derek Jeter. The conversation was contentious from the start, with Le Betard saying, "Baseball has been really bad to South Florida for many years, and I don't believe baseball deserves a single customer in South Florida," just moments before introducing the commissioner. It only got more heated from there. Le Betard bluntly asked whether or not Manfred knew of Jeter's plan to cleveland indians jersers slash the Marlins' payroll. Manfred denied having knowledge of any of Jeter's specific plans for the group while going through the approval process. "We are starting with a chicago white sox jersers lie, Rob," washington nationals jersers Le Batard said. "That's where we're starting." Manfred continued to insist that decisions such as the miami marlins jersers ones Jeter has made to cut the Marlins' budget were made at a local level, independent of his purview as commissioner. "We did not have player-specific plans from the Miami Marlins or any other team that we approve in the ownership process." On Thursday, Le Batard said during his show that he had seen the "Project Wolverine" boston red sox jersers proposal Jeter's group washington nationals jersers put together for MLB and knew the commissioner was not being truthful. This was echoed by Barry Jackson at the Miami Herald cincinnati reds jersers who reported that Jeter's plan was vetted and approved by MLB, and that that plan included slashing the team's budget from $115 million to $85 million. "A source directly involved in the Marlins sales process, after hearing the Le Batard interview, said, via text: 'Commissioner detroit tigers jersers said was not aware of [Jeter] plan to slash payroll. Absolutely not true. They request and receive the operating plan from all bidders. "'Project Wolverine [the name for Jeter's plan] called on his group to reduce payroll to $85 million. This was vetted and approved by MLB prior to approval by MLB. Every [Jeter] investor and non investor has the Wolverine financial plan of slashing payroll to $85 million.
