The Editor: What is just examples about, LL ?

Comparison Cat: It’s an analogy, metaphor, or simile of different cultures. I don’t understand some things that I write about ( sometimes I’m like a Democrat).

I include the Chinese kids whenever I can, to show who has a better chance in the future.

The Democratic women office holders and MSM women can’t hold a candle to these women.

This is not a good example.

Here is another example of public organizations lying.

The plastic industry wants to expand. They want to put plastic in school lunches as a source of fiber. So far the Tide Pods are looking good for the Billion dollar contract.

Today’s True Story of an Angel Encounter

The Angel Nurse

In 1998, Luke was diagnosed with bone cancer at the tender age of eight. As sometimes happens, he came down with an infection, which meant he had to go to the hospital. He was there for about two weeks, and that’s when something remarkable happened.

One evening, Luke’s mother was sitting at his bedside quietly praying as he slept. A nurse came into the room to check Luke’s temperature, but his mother noted something rather peculiar about her.

The nurse was wearing an old-fashioned uniform of the type that would have been common 30 years earlier, in the 1960s. The nurse noticed that Luke’s mother had a Bible by the side of his bed. She said that she was a Christian, too, and said she would pray for Luke’s healing.

Luke’s family had never seen this odd nurse before, and they never saw her again in Luke’s remaining time at the hospital.

“I came out of the hospital fully healed of my infection,” says Luke, who was 19 when he told his story. Remarkably, he is now completely free of cancer.

“My mom believes this nurse could have been a guardian angel coming down to give my mom some hope,” Luke says. “If she wasn’t an angel, why would she be wearing 1960s old-fashioned nurse clothing?”

Galaxies in the River

Explanation: Large galaxies grow by eating small ones. Even our own galaxy engages in a sort of galactic cannibalism, absorbing small galaxies that are too close and are captured by the Milky Way’s gravity. In fact, the practice is common in the universe and illustrated by this striking pair of interacting galaxies from the banks of the southern constellation Eridanus, The River. Located over 50 million light years away, the large, distorted spiral NGC 1532 is seen locked in a gravitational struggle with dwarf galaxy NGC 1531 (right of center), a struggle the smaller galaxy will eventually lose. Seen edge-on, spiral NGC 1532 spans about 100,000 light-years. Nicely detailed in this sharp image, the NGC 1532/1531 pair is thought to be similar to the well-studied system of face-on spiral and small companion known as M51.
