This is sad. I’d been following the case of the missing New York mom since she was of Hispanic descent and that’s all that CNN en español played in the car in the mornings. As it turns out, she was found dead in Turkey stabbed to death. She was there pursuing her photography. My thoughts and prayers are with her family…
Due to massive cuts Louisiana made to its Medicaid program, the state will stop providing “behavioral health services for at-risk children, offer case management visits for low-income HIV patients and pay for at-home visits by nurses who teach poor, first-time mothers how to care for their newborns.” Once again, I was reminded how we don’t take mental illness seriously in this country. Sad.
Finally, it was Ground Hog Day this past weekend, in which Panxsutawney Phil did not see his shadow, therefore we can expect an early spring. Woo-hoo! Speaking of, one of my all-time favorite movies, Ground Hog Day (Bill Murray, Andie Macdowell) is 20 years old. In celebration, here is one of my favorite clips from the movie. Enjoy!
