A certain man ....

This is the video of a woman in Texas who bought another woman's house at auction and then turned around and told her she could have it back. The first owner - Tracy - lost the home to foreclosure when she lost her job at the Postal Service. The woman who bought the house - Marilyn - said she did it "just because people need help."

Nice example Marilyn!

Does Anyone Really Care??????

I'm watching the VP candidates debate. Sarah Palin looks better, she has a better media presence, but is she smarter? Does anyone really care that these two people are a heartbeat away from the presidency?

Palin is younger, Biden is more experienced. Can someone please teach the Republicans that the word is NU-CLEE-ur not NU-KYOO-lar. I mean for goodness sake, the word is spelled N-U-C-L-E-A-R. There is only ONE U in the word!

That being said, I don't seem to think that anyone has the whole pie. They all seem to have a slice, but no one seems to have the whole thing. I would like to see the two VP candidates say more about what THEY would do, instead of what the lead office - Obama or McCain - would do. I mean, we're trying to determine what THEY would do. Let's say that McCain has a heart attack and Palin is it. What would she be like as president? What if Obama gets sick and can't complete the office of president? What would Biden be like as the MAN? Come on, let's see more of them.

Did Biden almost cry when talking about being a parent who understands with a child who might not make it? I mean he does know, his son was gravely injured and almost didn't live. And Palin has a special needs child. That's a huge challenge in itself. But I think when I step into the inner sanctum of the voting booth in a month, unless someone brings more to the table, I will have a hard time voting for either one of them.
