Stop the Shrub from Limiting Women's Options

We have until September 25 to raise an outcry.

Shrub is pushing a new rule "from the Department of Health and Human Services that would govern family planning. It would require that any health care entity that receives federal financing — whether it’s a physician in private practice, a hospital or a state government — certify in writing that none of its employees are required to assist in any way with medical services they find objectionable". What this does, in effect, is allow each individual who works at such agencies to decide what options to offer to women who need help. This is crazy, but typical of rules that spew from a Bush.

Let's stop him from messing up things any worse than he already has.

Baked Beans: Recipe

In between everything else I'm up to this evening, I'm cooking. I just put the last few ingredients together and it TASTES like baked beans!! I made up the recipe from what I have in the house. Now that I have tasted it, I'm going to look it up to see what else I should put in.

Here's what's in there so far:
2.5 cups pinto beans, from dry
half a head of garlic
about 1/4 bottle of ketchup
juice of 1 lemon
half an onion (all I had) sauteed in
one breakfast's worth of bacon, chopped
three giant spoonfulls of maple syrup

What else should I add? A little cayenne....some cinnamon??
