A Quiet Friday

After Michele Kramer's memorial,
the reception included WSBA friends
Today was not a bad day, as I set up a schedule of tasks I wanted to get done, and got them done before going off to a memorial service for Michelle Kramer.
I got home after 7, and Kris made a nice dinner using the steamer. It's an odd housemate relationship we're working out, but it doesn't seem fraught or bad - not as good as being married, but better than being out on the street I suppose. I had a nice chat with Ginger while helping her pack up some electronics; this house's connection to the internet is via our phones now, which saves money on the cable that we used only for the internet.

Plans for 2014


  • Maintain and improve health and housing situation. I'll be resuming the diet that worked so well for me about 10 years ago, stepping up to exercising 5 times a week, and continuing to improve my housing - after all, I'm going to be living here another 30 years so any thing I do will pay off in the long run 
  • Regularize my delivery of pro bono legal services through the Veterans Pro Bono Consortium Project. I'm currently handling one case, and by the end of 2014 should be experienced enough to start a pipeline
  • Get Veterans and Friends of Puget Sound organized and humming. January will be a key month for this, as we have a necessary bit of time to regroup and reorganize; the goal is that it should be as efficient and regular as 4freeCLE.
  • Keep expanding 4freeCLE. There has to be a way to extend its reach to provide more service.

The Archdruid Report's favorite bible verses

From The Archdruid Report
Here are the passages I found in which Jesus tells his followers that they have a duty to take care of children, the poor, and other vulnerable people: Matthew 18:6, 18:10, 19:21, 23:14, and 25:31-46; Mark 9:36-37, 10:21, and 12:40; and Luke 10:30-37, 11:41, 12:33, 14:12-14, 18:22, and 20:47.

Here are the passages in which Jesus tells his followers to pay their taxes without complaining: Matthew 5:42, 17:24-27, and 22:19-21; Mark 12:14-17; and Luke 6:30 and 20:21-25.

Here are the passages in which Jesus tells his followers that they aren’t supposed to obsess about other people’s sins, but should leave that to God, and attend to their own moral failings instead: Matthew 7:1-5 and 9:10-13; Mark 2:15-17; Luke 6:37, 6:41-42, 7:44-48, 15:2, 18:10-14, and 19:7; and John 8:2-11.

And here are the passages in which Jesus tells his followers to blame the poor and vulnerable for their plight, direct benefits toward the already well-to-do at the expense of everyone else, refuse to pay their fair share of taxes, and obsessively denounce and punish the sins of people they don’t like while finding every opportunity to excuse their own sins and those of their friends:
