Welcome to your Weekend (week of March 27)

Today I noticed my daughter reading one of Charles Schultz' Peanuts stories. You remember Peanuts right? Charlie Brown ran to kick the football, only to have Lucy jerk it out from under him. Snoopy, the World War I Flying Ace, relentlessly pursued the Red Baron. Linus, sweet and wise, couldn't seem to let go of his blue blanket.

Grace Notes: Do not be afraid!

Franklin Delano Roosevelt said that "The only thing we have to fear is fear itself." Yeah right. Try telling that to the man being mauled by a bear, or the woman about to be hit by a car, or anyone facing a life-threatening danger.
