Dear Sheldon and the Breeze

From a letter from the founder of Buddy Nation, one of the recipients of the Bowl of Thanks. “Thanks to your help in getting the word out, we were able to reach my goal of writing 2 checks for just over $2000 for both Buddy Nation and The Rescue Mission/Lighthouse for Women and Children! Hoping to send another thank you from the Rescue Mission, but we are presenting that check tomorrow, Monday.”

Thanking you again and always for your support with Potters’ Guild events and all the animal nonprofits..now I’m involved with Buddy Nation as well as All for Love….where we got our little Topa..not so little anymore!

Sincerely,
Cecile Gurrola Faulconer-Potters’ Guild


Sheldon:

The reason Turner received such a minor sentence (Stanford swimmer), compared to what you or I would have gotten, is because he is a jock at a big time school. Was justice served?

Of course not, but in the USA “thems that gots, is thems that gets”. And that is why it is relevant.

A cello player from Stanford would also get a minor sentence, especially if he is a good cello player. After all, we need good cello players more than we need good swimmers.

awesomely simple, that’s creativity
