Flu season starts with just half of needed vaccine
The sub-head to this article is "Healthy urged to forgo shots for those at high risk
." There was also an article in this morning's Tennessean about how this will affect some of the Nashville hospitals
As much as I like the "security" of getting a flu shot each year (I'll take a couple of hours of feeling less than stellar as opposed to a couple of days with the flu), I guess I'm going to have to forgo my flu shot for a while. I have to admit, that the part of me that hates getting shots (I have this tendency to pass out after shots) is kind of relieved while the other part of me that hates getting sick is a bit irritated. But, let's keep looking on the bright side--I might not have to get a shot. (Actually, I'm gonna wait a couple of weeks and see what happens before I head out for a flu shot.) I'd gladly give up my flu shot so my 91-year old grandfather, who needs the flu like most of us need a hole in the head, can get his.

Donald Sensing, a member of the Rocky Top Brigade and author of the One Hand Clapping Blog
(currently on a sabbatical and sorely missed!) talks to columnist Tim Chavez of the Tennessean. The column is titled Sense of security vs. hatred of war: tough call for him
. Great reading and congratulations to Donald on this.
Now if only the Tennessean would figure out they have another blogging celebrity close by, right here in the great city of Nashville. Yes, of course, I'm referring to Danielle over at Mississives Anonymous
Putting the losing streak into perspective...
OK, so maybe I'm a bit down on the Titans right now (the story this morning about possibly losing Tyrone Callico for the season
when he's played all of one half of regular season football after looking brilliant in the pre-season doesn't help things) and sure I keep reminding myself that in 2002, we started 1-4 and were one game away from the Super Bowl. And while I worry about us not having a good year, the thing I worry about more is fans jumping off the bandwagon and not coming back. We've been spoiled by success since the Titans became the Titans. Now, we'll begin to see who the real fans are...those who'll remain with the team even if they're not among the elite in the NFL. Local columnist Gail Kerr feels that we have nothing to fear in her column this morning
