After a very bad week -- and after a particularly horrible day -- my pooch George seems to have made a decent recovery. He wants to thank everyone who has donated to the "George fund." My gratitude is profound and humbling.
The most persuasive argument in favor of religion is that belief in God gives you someone to thank when your dog recovers.
I know I've said it several times before, but -- how do you people with actual human children do

Diabetes is a strange disease. The pancreas is such a delicate piece of equipment, supplying just enough insulin to meet the body's needs at any given moment. One would think that once-a-day or twice-a-day insulin injections would be a ridiculously poor substitute -- yet millions of people and animals manage to live well under this regimen.
