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.

Just got my booster!

Halfway to the New Year!...

Thirty-three patients on my schedule today. Half of them are COVID-19 tests.

Same as yesterday. Three COVID-19 positives yesterday. All of them are vaccinated and having few, if any, symptoms.

Get vaccinated, everyone. And if you are vaccinated, get your booster.

Some DU Lounge vibes to get through the day would be most welcome...

It's snowing where I live.

And since we’ve no place to go, we threw together a savory stew, and we’re breaking out the hot chocolate with Irish Cream.

Enjoy the last week of the year.

I love you all…

Merry Christmas to all of my beloved Loungers.

I love you all.

Warmest wishes for a Happy New Year!

Getting out of a toasty-warm bed on a cold winter's morning

to go to the bathroom is a special kind of hell.

Coming back from the bathroom and snuggling back down under the warm covers again is pure Heaven.

Stuck at home, sick. Bored out of my mind. Any Loungers out there?

Bob Dole was the first Republican Presidential candidate I ever voted AGAINST.

I voted for George Bush Senior in 1988 (my first Presidential election) and again in 1992. By 1996, I was politically aware enough to know what a shitshow the GOP was (thanks for being so repulsive, Newt Gingrich!), and had embraced my inner liberal by then. in 1996, I voted for Bill Clinton, and have never voted for any Republican since then, at any level on the ballot.

If the electorate was not so closely divided, I might be tempted, as a liberal, to vote for a liberal Republican over a conservative Democrat. But the GOP has pretty much purged the party of liberals and moderates. So if voting for a less-than-liberal Democrat means keeping a majority, along with committee chairmanships, I'll do it.
