Pet poisoning: Jerky treats back in stores as mystery lingers
Wed Jan 22, 2014
Or it could be the diseased animals they make them from, and the propylene glycol...aka, antifreeze....they soak it in to keep it "looking" fresh and healthy~
State efforts to block Obamacare are working, study finds

We don't have to hire " a bunch of predatory untrained unscrupulous people to become navigators, then they would have all the information to abuse people financially" because we've already elected them and they're doing a fine job!
Girl, 7, asks scientists for a dragon, gets standing job offer
Fri Jan 10, 2014
Bravo. THIS is the way to insure that kids are not wandering the streets aimlessly, getting into trouble. Stir their imagination, challenge them, believe in them so that they can believe in themselves.
Unexpected diagnosis: Some medical tests may be harmful to your health
Wed Jan 8, 2014
"We don't have four hours to spend with each patient" The problem in a nutshell, and in fact one that a single payer system would go quite far in remedying. Put those docs on a salary, and patient care will improve dramatically. I was seeing an Internal Medicine doc, and a couple of the medications …
Two of three officers cleared in fatal shooting of mentally ill NC teenager
Tue Jan 7, 2014
He wasn't unarmed, and if the family indicated that he was dangerous, the police are morally and legally obligated to act as if he was dangerous. And for those of you who think someone, ANYONE in the throes of a schizophrenic break who has a weapon in their hand is not dangerous should spend a few m …
Family demanding answers after police fatally shoot mentally ill NC teenager

Bioethicist: Texas shouldn't force life support on pregnant woman
Tue Dec 24, 2013
This child is, without question, going to be far too damaged to survive, much less have anything even remotely resembling a life. I'm amazed that they were able to resuscitate her to the point that she could even be placed on life support, and if the baby. if it lives long enough in utero to develop …
Bioethicist: Girl's tragic case can't change reality of brain death
Thu Dec 19, 2013
My 21st birthday gift to myself was a signed and witnessed "No Code" order. I can absolutely understand the family's POV, and my heart goes out to them, it honestly does. No parent should have to bury their child. It's not the natural order of things, and it is horrendously heartbreaking. That …
TSA confiscates sock monkey's toy gun
Tue Dec 10, 2013
Perhaps we need to address the issue with the people who have and continue to profit from the grand institution of the TSA. That certainly is not the American public who pays for them both in terms of salary and public humiliation every time one of us is forced to board an airplane.
