Something blue from a Biggest Morning Tea
I had the chance to remind myself of the charm of Emily’s work because I went along to a morning tea fundraiser for the Cancer Council at my second cousin’s home, which was a very pleasant few hours that flew by while drinking tea and noshing cakes with other women, and indeed went so well that we are probably going to form a book group of some sort. The Cancer Council’s target for their Biggest Morning Tea fundraiser is $11,000,000 and so far they’ve raised less than $1 million for their 2009 drive, but there’s the whole month of June to go.

“Pro-life” terrorist assassinates Dr George Tiller in Wichita
Dr Tiller was one of the few doctors in the USA providing late term abortions (SotBO: which are sometimes sadly necessary and usually involve a traumatic crisis in a wanted pregnancy). He has long been a target of anti-choice activism, including being shot before.
He was murdered as he attended his church for the Sunday morning service. A suspect is now in custody.
