ezs note:  Let me tell you a little story.  When I met my uncle Ray, he was, unquestionably, a kind, decent man.  No, he was not President of the United States.  He was not the governor.  He was a mailman.  Yet every one of those high offices - Republican or Democrat -  would kill to have that level of decency.  I was out of touch with him for a while, until yesterday when I got the sad news that he had contracted Alzheimer's disease.

For Ray, things are not that good.  But you can help - even a little bit - by donating to the Alzheimer's Association here.
