Boobs (a bit of humor)

This one is dedicated to Robert Cormack I do much research and study. I think it makes me feel older rather than younger. I tackle tough topics containing material I’d rather not know. I hit a tough one last night. I know covering it will be a bear. I found it here:   https://youtu.be/NJFbsWX4MJM   It... Continue Reading →

My Name is ASIA

Doctors are of the human species.  Brave souls who take the risk of making decisions that may pit us against them.  I always keep on mind my brothers and sisters are just as fallible as me.  I’ve seen the frivolity of law drive up costs and drive up the profession’s need to protect itself.  But it’s gone too far. 

Corporate Fascism

“We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”https://www.archives.gov/founding-docs/constitution-transcript no longer exists....

The Real Story behind Dr. Jonathan Swift’s “A Modest Proposal”

Georges Psalmanazar must have appreciated the reference to his writings. Twenty-six years before the presentation of “A Modest Proposal” in a public printing, Psalmanazar arrived in England successfully presenting himself as a Formosan prince and found himself being wooed by the elite academics of the time. The lack of contact with such an exotic culture allowed the blond-haired, blue-eyed Frenchman to pose as a member of a people well-versed in the art of human sacrifice, and in particular

Dr. Christine Blasey Ford

  Dr. Christine Blasey Ford. Thank you. You are my hero. I remember thinking I was a hero once. It was a long time ago. A powerful man tried to do that thing to me. I was only sixteen. I reported him within an hour after the event but was brushed off. Years later, I would learn... Continue Reading →

Murder By Medicine

Believe it or not, after I thought of this title, I realized it was catchy and did a search on it to see if it has been used elsewhere. It has. A doctor left her practice because she could no longer stand the fact that many people are dying because of medications that are being given. Her... Continue Reading →

Devilment in The North End

I was barely seventeen. Somehow I envisioned the world as pristine outside of the turmoil of my childhood. My trust was implicit. I had met a few undesirables but had maintained this view of the world. For four years, I had escaped the brutality of my home through drugs. I woke one morning—kidneys screaming—a wisp of myself—ribs... Continue Reading →

The Depot Diner

  Welcome wafts through the air.  It rides on the delicious aromas of the fare offered by the Depot Diner (located at 23 Enon St. Beverly, MA 01915 978-922-6200). The food is unique in its presentation and plentifulness.  Breakfast is comforting here.  Early morning dwells in quietude, whereas dinnertime offers a celebratory atmosphere. I set...

The Wild Ride

It’s been a while. Stories have swirled through my head but never made it to the keyboard. It’s as if the virgin territory of my new study forebodes me. It’s time to break this cherry. Light a cigarette, Joyce, and get going. I was nineteen, and I was in love—not with a man, but with... Continue Reading →
