Stayed home again to take care of my sore throat. My pal Victor Cosby sent me a petition from MoveOn.org in protest against the war. I filled it out, adding this personal statement: "I emphatically do not support President Bush's actions of war without support from the United Nations. Our president has clearly overstepped his authority within the global community, and We The People are the only ones who can reign him in. Americans: If you agree, make your voice heard!" Went to my orthopedist Christopher Cox today. He said my MRI looked very good, but since the condition I have -- something about the patella scraping a little bit where it shouldn't -- is permanent and I should avoid hills and stairs forever. Dinner at home with Patrick: pork chops, asparagus, skinny french fries. Sore throat still hurts today.
