Keep Laughing, Keep Listening, Keep Loving


Marcia Morrissey, wife of Hot Air’s Ed Morrissey, recently got some bad news from the doctor. She is blind, and she began to notice that her hearing is going away:

The other night I heard Ed saying something from the other room, but couldn’t tell what it was. I asked for probably the thousandth time over the past few weeks, “What did you say?”

He said, “I coughed.”

I answered, “What are you scoffing about?”

He replied in a louder voice, “I just coughed!”

That is the way communication has been around here for the past three weeks. It has been, well, let’s just say interesting. We have decided to keep laughing.

Read her blog post here, and pray for her if you’re the type who prays.
