Long time readers of my previous blog know that my daughter Jenelle is a semi-professional ice skater. Her skating coach is going through a family crisis that is affecting not only her family but her friends as well. Long story short is that her sister Justina, was diagnosed by her personal physician with a rare genetic disorder. When she was taken to Boston Children's Hospital in early February, they disagreed with the diagnosis and instead came up with a psychiatric diagnosis. When her parents disagreed and tried to take her home, the hospital security staff stopped her and with Massachusetts DCF rubber stamping the order, has held her hostage at the hospital and is attempting to terminate the rights of her parents.
So as you can see, I'm not really in the mood to celebrate Christmas this year, and to a lesser extent, not really in the mood to do any kind of writing or any kind of blogging. All I've been really doing since last Friday is to do a little editing, break out the turntable, dive into my large (1500+) collection of 45's, and try to find some logical meaning to this screwed up world and maybe a little peace of mind. And maybe, once this crazy payweek ends on Saturday, I'll be able to grace this blog with another post before the year marches out.
Here's to a very Merry Christmas to everyone out there and hoping that Santa Claus (or whatever Christmas deity you choose to believe in) brings you everything that is on your wish list.
Update 12/24/13: Here is a beefier version of the FoxCT video that is posted on the FoxNews website. Please scroll down to the link from the Boston Globe, which recently did a special story on this, that expands on both the video and the initial link.
