Careful with that transplant...


Brain Amoebas. Organ Transplants. Brrr.

Nightmare scenario: New disease arises. It’s rare enough that there aren’t many known patients, and so it isn’t well-studied — and because it isn’t well-studied, there aren’t agreed-upon treatments or accurate tests for it, and there isn’t a good understanding of situations where the infected might pose an unusual risk to others.

Situations, for instance, like organ transplants.

Glad I don't need any organ transplants...

They're... they're... taking pictures... of... CHILDREN!!

Where is the heroic examiner or the manly advocate?

WHY aren't they denouncing this?

Have they abandoned their crusade to protect all children from being photographed?

Why aren't they exposing the Coloradoan as potential child molesters?

It's sad when a community's (self-appointed) heroes fall down on the job.

People Have Had Enough of Fred Phelps

West Virginia Miners Drive Fred Phelps Out of Town

Psycho Fred Phelps and his band of creepy followers descended on West Virginia Thursday to rally against the 25 miners — sinners in their book — who died in the Massey Energy-run coal mine explosion on Monday.

People in Charleston would have none of it and they drove Phelps and his crazy gang out of town:

Ah, finally, an indication that there’s still some sanity left in this country.

(There was a time, not long ago (when I a kid and even a teenager), when the likes of Glenn Beck were seen as pariahs like Phelps.  Heaven help us if someone like Phelps is ever welcomed into the mainstream and given a nationally syndicated radio and television show.)

There is Help

I can think of at least one (maybe two) people in Longmont that could use these.
