About Me

I truly believe that we will all live in peace and brotherhood someday. And so that I don't lose my faith in humanity, I will live my life as if that day had already happened.

Happy Birthday to America!

A nation founded by the Puritans. Who gave us The Puritan Work Ethic. Which evidently means working until you drop dead, after which, some spoiled-rich idiot will stand over your body and condemn your memory for not working hard enough for HIS wealth. Not that the Puritans didn't appreciate the importance of leisure time. Which apparently, they spent hanging housewives whose chickens laid funny-looking eggs, and listening to sermons like Jonathan Edwards' "Sinners In The Hands Of An Angry God", which reads like 'World War Z', only without Brad Pitt and the cute Israeli soldier.

Fun times!

I've got to have a 'conversation' with a patient tomorrow. It looks like she's got ovarian cancer.



I've already put in a referral to gynecologic oncology, and there is some follow up imaging to do. But I'm not looking forward to breaking the news to her.

Vibes for her, and for our visit tomorrow, please.

Any word if a test-case is going to be initiated re: ACA coverage for Viagra and vasectomies?

There has to be a progressive, wealthy business-owner out there somewhere interested in challenging the SCOTUS over the Hobby Lobby fiasco.

Put the Felonious Five on their guard. Make them come right out and say 'Yes for men; no for women.'

So some business owner can make a public statement regarding their henceforth refusal to cover Viagra, vasectomies, or any of a number of men's health issues.

How much of case law is decided by test cases such as the one I just described?

Anybody still up?

I'd kinda like to hang out for a while, if anyone is...

Good morning, Loungers!



How is everyone today?

First trailer for Brad Pitt's WWII tank film, "Fury":



SO looking forward to this movie. Hollywood rarely gets tank operations right, but as an ex-tanker, I have hope for this film.

Anybody know why the Army ditched the green Class-A's?

When I see soldiers, they're either in those hideously ugly ADU's (or whatever they're called) or dress blues.

I thought that Class-A greens, and the service Class-B uniforms were terrific.

Happy Juneteenth, everybody!

During lunch, I was reading the wikipedia article about the Barack Obama 'birther' "controversy".

It reminded me a little of the 'controversy' surrounding the Shakespeare authorship question.

All I can say is: the shit some people choose to believe...
