Playing The Long Game


Bonnie Raitt performing Angel From Montgomery at the 2022 Billboard Women In Music Awards.  Saw her on June 21st at the Beacon Theater in NYC.  Could not find a half decent YouTube clip from show itself.  Suffice it to say, she was amazing.  Playing the Long Game [...]

The Completion Backwards Principle


Today's mini-blog is to address the CDC's new guidance regarding isolation/quarantine and give you a glimpse of what is coming in the weeks ahead. Spoiler alert: The horse is out of the barn.  It's about to get as ugly as you ever dreamed.  But it may not be all that bad.  Confused?  Got your [...]

"Yesterday All my troubles seemed so far away Now it looks as though they're here to stay Oh, I believe in yesterday Suddenly I'm not half the man I used to be There's a shadow hangin' over me Oh, yesterday came suddenly" -John Lennon/Paul McCartney (Yesterday, 1965) [...]


Bridge Over Troubled Waters


Next week the FDA meets to discuss Pfizer's request for Emergency Use Authorization of Comirnaty in children ages 5 to 11 years.  Comirnaty is the official name of Pfizer's vaccine to provide protection from Covid-19.  Glad this is written communication, because I haven't a clue how to pronounce Comirnaty.  Should the FDA approve the [...]

Bookends It’s been a few weeks since the last post, and this one is going to be a brief one.  Why?  Three reasons.  First, I don’t have a lot to update you with.  Second is that I have spent most of my spare time vaccinating nearly 1000 folks this last month to protect [...]
