Gabrielle Giffords

I hope Arizona Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D), in therapy to recover from a shot in the head that leveled her Jan. 8, 2011, near Tucson, AZ, is crabby.

To regain use of her right side, she pushes shopping carts down hospital corridors, practices indoor golf and bowling from a wheelchair, and is trying to write with her left hand, according to April 27 Christian Science Monitor daily news briefing.

That’s enough to make anyone accustomed to fancier activities crabby.

But, I hope she’s crabby, because general all around grumpiness is a good sign of getting better. I hope she knows, soon, that doing these tasks so small and basic, is magnifient, noble, brave.
