    New cases and deaths finally seemed to be leveling off in Mexico, where 160 people have been killed after an aggressive public health campaign.

    — From MSNBC’s story “WHO notches up swine flu pandemic alert” (I know, I know, what am I doing on MSNBC anyway?)

Is it just me or is that some bad writing? Where’s a little ol’ comma when you need one? So 160 people were killed (!) after an aggressive public health campaign?!? That IS aggressive isn’t it? Wow! And, in addition to our friend the comma, I think I’d have used “have died” as opposed to “have been killed.” Then again, I would not have written the sentence that way at all. But maybe I am just splitting hairs. Or not.

Anyway, today Annabelle woke up saying “Mommy! Mommy! Mommy!”

I went to her door and knocked and said, “May I come in?”

“YEAH!” she yelled.

When I walked in she was jumping up and down and was just so very cute. Lil’ Miss Adora-belle.
