Yeah Norway--The most sustainable state.

The Fund for Peace has come out with its latest index of failed states.  Thirty-eight  states (headed by Somalia) are on Alert (on the verge of failure),  Ninety-three are on the "Warning" list; thirty-three (including the U.S.) are "Moderate;" and thirteen (7.5%!!) are "Sustainable."

Dear Mary, R.I.P.

Mary W. and her husband were killed this morning.  They were hit by a car while crossing a street near their home.  Mary was one of my very few friends and she was a good friend.  She gave of her time at the local homeless day shelter and was active in her parish church.  She was one of a very small circle of people who met for prayer and study under the auspices of the Catholic Worker Movement.  Right now, I feel like part of myself is dead.  However, only a couple people of my acquaintance were as prepared for death as Mary was, so I am grieving for my own loss.  Love and peace to everyone.
