I don't agree with The Leader about the war with Iraq. I know not all of you share the same opinion. Some of you with websites who link to me have even make very lucid comments about your opinion on your own sites and I respect that. I believe that as Americans we are allowed to disagree on this. I am happy that we are keeping our reciprocal links and allowing this free and public discourse to continue.
Having said that, I read a very disturbing open letter written by Charlie Daniels (Devil Went Down to Georgia) lambasting in the harshest terms those opposed to the war. I also read what I consider to be a brilliant response by a veteran.
I have found it helpful to do the stretching exercises my physical therapist recommends. Do some core strengthening exercises, such as the ones highlighted at The Mayo Clinic. By keeping your core strong, your back won't put itself in a position to cause that sciatica pain you are having.
