If you read Dear Abby even rarely, you’ve come across a Pennies from Heaven anecdote. Somebody dies. Somebody who misses the dead person lives and finds a penny. Maybe the penny is from the year of the dead person’s birth, death or wedding–first kiss–last barbecue–you name it. The finder feels connected to the dead person, sure that somehow s/he put the penny there for him/her to find. Um, no comment. I’m more of a believer in Cigarette Smoke from Hell. I’m in a restaurant or an outdoor concert or walking outside any government building and the scent of cigarette smoke overcomes me. I know who that’s from, oh yeah. For some reason, Dear Abby hasn’t printed one of my charming stories.

Republican legislators in Ohio will harm & kill women & girls. Two more juvenile rape victims forced to travel out of state. And two cancer victims denied abortions, which left them ineligible for necessary cancer treatment.
Vote carefully in November. https://www.cincinnati.com/story/news/2022/09/27/affidavits-2-more-raped-minors-were-denied-ohio-abortions/69520380007/
One of my books has been removed from the shelves in some Florida school districts. Those of us who believe in books for and about ALL kids, remember this: There are more of us. WAY more.
We will prevail.
