The majority in the audience - white- didn't "get" - understand- many

of Wilmore's lines.
His references are not a part of their world.
In many instances that includes myself as well.

That is likely correct re lasix, but I guess, depending on the patient, the good effects

have to be weighed against the bad.
It sounds as though your family member's illnesses have not progresses as far as my daughter's, and I sincerely hope he is able to keep problems in check.

My daughter has both these diseases - diabetes and kidney disease.

She has had severe edema, and had a kidney biopsy to identify the problem, identified as membranous nephropathy. (There is a longer word - glomur.... - which I don't remember off-hand , but the first one- membranous nephropathy.

We were told that her kidneys are throwing off too much protein, making her anemic; body not making enough red blood cells because of lack of protein. Some protein is necessary to maintain health.

She has been given Lasix to remove fluid, and has also had restrictions on amount of fluid taken in.

The whole thing is very complicated; daughter has been hospitalized 5 times since Oct., culminating in a stroke in early March which has left her right arm and hand without movement, and she is now aphasic. Her whole life has been changed for the future, depending how much speech she regains, etc.

I hope your family member can keep all these elements under control and live a full, vigorous life.

I hope he traveled in Air Force Two, especially inasmuch as he went

to Iraq before coming to the Vatican.
Joe Biden is a great example of what a public servant should be.

Could the meeting have long been scheduled?

It's unnecessary for me to point out that VP Biden is no longer running for political office, so a photo op is not relevant.

I appreciate your pulling these state-related stories together for posting, TexasTowelie.

They sure fill a gap - and a need- we've long had.

Good neighbors are a blessing, especially in an emergency -

and who's to say we won't have one some day?

There are a lot of people here on DU who are overly emotionally-involved

in political affairs.
It's too bad, because all are bound to be disappointed very often, even in your own candidates.
After one has been around a while, one learns to step back emotionally.

Perhaps Kornacki is also too close to his job right now.

Good to see you back! Hope all is well for you and your pets.

Also hope your neighbors and newspaper editor, etc. have been behaving.
