Apollo 4 on column of fire


I think I may have had cluster headaches on both sides this morning, though only the right eye is significantly blurry. Thanks for that! But the left eye does seem irritated.

My cluster headaches are ‘atypical’. I would be interested if there is anyone else in the world whose eye goes blurry for a few days after an attack.

I am not infrequently in this mildly blinded state, but I usually don’t mention it. It’s been a problem since my mid 30s. Blurry vision is a heck of a lot more withstandable than the cluster headache proper! Those suck, and unattenuated by drugs they megasuck.

Chronic cluster headache, where they go on and on, has to be a total nightmare. I’m thinking of that baseball pitcher who got a batted ball in the eye and was obviously in extreme pain—imagine that going on and on and on.

‘Impeachment is off the table’

Now that Nancy Pelosi is implicated in the Bushist war crimes, it is no wonder that impeachment is ‘off the table’ to such a degree that there isn’t even an investigation: this disgusting, vile woman would herself be disgraced and have to step down.

From Digby on October 10:

"We have to make responsible decisions in the Congress that are not driven by the dissatisfaction of anybody who wants the war to end tomorrow," Pelosi told the gathering at the Sofitel, arranged by the Christian Science Monitor. Though crediting activists for their "passion," Pelosi called it "a waste of time" for them to target Democrats. "They are advocates," she said. "We are leaders."

The birds across the street

Our neighbor across the street sometimes raises his own poultry. This year he has had three geese and two turkeys. The geese disappeared from his yard right around Turkey Day, and I suspect the turkeys will disappear right around Christmas. Isn’t that backwards? Something is wrong here.
