Raising a son like Alito...

1-11-06- We are now entering our 24th day of rain, and they say we have at least 10 more coming. As if to make fools of the forecasters, the weather actually cleared for about 15 minutes over Puyallup this morning. But, here in the Northwest, it’s common for the sun to shine early in the morning. I say it’s God’s way of tricking us into getting out of bed.
The photo was taken in Cabo some years ago. You’ll notice it doesn’t look as if they’ve had any rain for a few centuries. Of course, it does rain there sometimes—I think.
Alito- If I were raising a son like Alito, I would worry. He seems to be one of those people who will go whichever way the wind is blowing. When asked about abortion statements, he said he just said that because he wanted a job. Some opinions he said were tailored to what Reagan wanted to hear. He sounds like the kind of person who will go whichever way the wind is blowing. This is the kind of flaw that concerns a mother. In the Supreme Court, under pressure, will he vote on the side of whoever puts the most pressure on him? Just wondering…

I picked this quote because it made me laugh—Astor was no slouch!
