This is Buzzy's Country Store blog designed to keep you apprised of what's going on at the Store. Buzzy's is a general store located in St. Mary's County, Southern Maryland near Pt. Lookout State Park. Buzzy and Jean Ridgell purchased the Store from Jean's father Harry Raley in 1953. Buzzy operated it until his passing in 2009. His son J. Scott Ridgell is the current owner.

March For Life

Here's a little drill for you: name three Supreme Court decisions. (This is one of the Katie Couric question that tripped up Sarah Palin.)  Bet that Roe versus Wade is the first (only?) one you cited.

All this comes to mind because of the March for Life in D.C. later today.

March For Life was moved back from its customary 22 January timeframe because of the Inauguration events of last week. Every time I see photos of folks participating in the March for Life, George Carlin's classic quote comes to my mind.  He lays it on you here in his opening.
