Article 25


She has the right to a standard of living adequate for the health and well-being of herself and of her family -- including food, clothing, housing, medical care and necessary social services.

And the right to security in the event of unemployment, sickness, disability, widowhood, old age or other lack of livelihood in circumstances beyond her control.

So do you, per Article 25 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

Today is International Human Rights Day. Knock yourself out.

(Think I'll send Georgie a postcard with reminders re Articles 5, 9, and 10.)

God, yes. We forget our basic rights so easily. And this administration has made that act of forgetfulness so easy, because it depends on it.

Is it me or is it highly interesting that Pinochet has died today?

He's died? How terrible! Pass the champagne!
