    Your chipper attitude in the face of adversity is a tonic to us all. We salute you.

    About “preempt,” as a lawyer (now retired) I believe your readers should be made aware of the importance of the legal doctrine of “Preemption, ” particularly Federal Preemption of State Law. Take the hurricane swirling around the issue of gun control, for instance. Now that the Supreme Court has ruled individuals have a limited (handguns in the home) right to bear arms under the Second Amendment to the Constitution, to what extent will that Constitutional right preempt or supersede state gun control laws? The answer will be given by the Court “in the fulness of time.” Meanwhile lives hang in the balance.
