Digging Out From the Snow -- Updates for Rev. Debra

Isn't that a magnificent pulpit? It's at the First Unitarian Society in Madison, Wisconsin this weekend -- the sanctuary was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, and I had the privilege of presenting the Wartmann lecture there this past Sunday.

A lot has happened since then -- including snowstorms in both Milwaukee and the East Coast that kept me away stranded far from home and the office for the past two days!

I'm delighted with President Obama's naming Governor Kathleen Sebelius to be the next Secretary of Health and Human Services. Lest anyone think that the Religious Right is over, just google and see the lies and distortions of her record they are spreading because she supports safe and legal abortion, despite being personally against abortion. Let's hope that these campaigns are seen for what they are.

Unbelievably today, Senator David Vitter (the Senator caught in the D.C. escort service ring) has introduced an amendment in the Senate to prohibit family planning funding to go to Planned Parenthoods. Imagine the audacity of this particular Senator to deny women sexual health services. If you haven't received the alert from Planned Parenthood to let your Senator hear from you, please go to their web site.

On a personal note, I'm going to be on the Today Show this Friday between 8 and 9 talking about my new book, What Every 21st Century Parent Needs to Know. Tune in!
