Sunday Issues Links is a list linking to useful, worthwhile, compelling and/or provocative posts from elderbloggers and stories from other sources that catch my fancy during the week.
The issues are the big ones and there are plenty: the economy, war(s), the Obama administration, Congress, the judiciary, legislation, education, health care and politics in general. Smaller issues and a little humor are good too. Please send your links for each edition by the end of day on the preceding Friday.

[PERSONAL NOTE: This is a short, unedited version of the Sunday Issues post because since Wednesday I haven’t read anything – online or off – except veterinary instructions. Ollie is on the mend – he’s eating again and even
asked demanded to play fetch this morning. I’m watching him closely…
…when I’m not sleeping, which I’ve been doing around the clock since I brought Ollie home from the vet again on Friday afternoon. I seem to be better this morning although I’m going to take it easy for awhile.
There are an overwhelming number of get well messages which I appreciate. And I’ll answer other email as soon as I can do it. Thank you so much for your kind thoughts.
