It's Almost Time!

Less than one hour for the return of SciFi Channel's Battlestar Galactica!!

(CORRECTION: Sorry, it's two hours until Galactica - I forgot that Doctor Who was also on tonight)

The whole family has been waiting for this for quite a while; the kid won't be able to watch tonight as she is on a Girl Scout camping trip for the weekend.

The one 'suck' part is that I missed a significant chunk of episodes when I was in the hospital eight months ago. Luckily, SciFi replayed a lot of episodes today in a marathon and I was able to at least watch some of them and tape two when I had to leave to go to dialysis.

Too Close to Home This Time

Motorcycle officer injured in crash

TUSCALOOSA | A Tuscaloosa police officer was injured this morning when the motorcycle he was riding was struck by a motorist on University Boulevard.

Tuscaloosa Police Chief Ken Swindle said Officer Shelby Rainey appears to have a broken left leg. He said that as of 9:30 a.m., doctors at DCH Regional Medical Center were performing CAT scans and other tests on the officer to verify the extent of his injuries.

Rainey was on duty at the time of the accident, and Swindle said a witness had told arriving officers that Rainey had been operating speed detection radar in the area shortly before the collision.

The accident took place on University Boulevard across from Audubon Place, near the entrance to Pinehurst, Swindle said.

Swindle did not have additional details, including which direction the vehicles were traveling. He said the investigation, despite occurring in the Tuscaloosa Police Department's jurisdiction, had been turned over to the Alabama State Troopers.

"When an officer is invovled in an accident, we always call in the state," the chief said.

Anyone who has read my stuff for a while knows how I feel about drunk drivers. And this time around, I'm even more angry: Officer Rainey is my brother-in-law.

This time, it's too close to home for my tastes. This is something that I do not like posting about.

I heard about this from family back east only a few days ago. I haven't heard of any updates - yet. That's a good thing at the moment - no calls telling me that Shelby has gotten worse.

If you're into praying for people, I think that Shelby could use all the help he can get.

As I find out more, I'll post updates.
