"Fighting for Life" Documentary Screening

Today the Twin Cities Maimonides Society is holding a screening of the documentary film “Fighting for Life,” about the doctors, nurses, and medics treating wounded soldiers and marines on the frontlines during the Iraq War, as well as following medical students at USU as they embark on their career as military physicians, and a soldier as she recovers from losing her leg in a IED blast.

There is a reception in advance of the private screening, with a panel discussion afterward featuring local physicians with active military duty experience about modern military medicine.

If you like that, you can order the same one Peter has or any number of other options. Then put yourself on the map. My favorites are that one and also this one by local designer Justin Heideman.

Burn Fat Not Oil Yard Sign

For ease of reading, I think I might put the </thewar> in my yard. I’d love to put that Burn Fat Not Oil up outside my cube, so all my co-workers who can’t understand how anything smaller than a large sedan could possibly be safe can see it.
