I figured it was about time for a quick update on my laser eye surgery: Every once and a while when I am very sleepy, I wake up and wonder where my glasses are. It is a funny feeling, but ultimately something that is nice to experence. Everything seems to be healing quite well. The halos are getting better, and I no longer get ‘over-exposed’ on bright objects (a white shirt in the sun for example). I am slightly better than 20-20 with both eyes, but my right eye still seems weaker. Hopefully that will keep getting better.

My night vision isn’t as good as it was, but time will tell if that is permanent or not. Halos and glare are bigger than when I wore glasses, and as a result I don’t have as much contrast – things like reflective signs are slightly harder to see. My vision is more than enough to drive, I just notice the little things because I had very good night vision with glasses. Must be my enormous pupils.

I am happy with the surgery so far.


Ugh. The lawsuit also seeks an order declaring the Nov. 2 election illegal, and a third order for a special election pitting the two primary-election survivors – Mayor Dick Murphy and county Supervisor Ron Roberts – against each other. Frye would be barred from participating. Looks like some people are not too happy about Donna Frye & the write-in vote.

Global warming has disrupted the lives of dozens of types of animals, birds and insects in the United States and will soon make the Arctic nearly unrecognizable, according to two reports released this week. And from the BBC: Polar people ‘will need to adapt’

Susan Reimer goes to town:
Apparently, if you are more worried about a Super Bowl halftime show than about the fact that the United States invaded a sovereign nation without provocation, you’ve got values.

If you are more offended by two guys kissing than by the fact that 100,000 Iraqi citizens have died while being liberated, you have values.

And if you care more about a single, fertilized egg in some deep freeze somewhere than about all the children with diabetes and all the grandparents with Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s, you have values.

If you care more about your exclusive and personal relationship with God than you do about his admonition to care for the poor and the weak, you have values.

  1. I wonder what the Arctic looked like when the Vikings inhabited Greenland – looks like they all adapted quite well. – spenserj
