The Kavovit family's letter to the editor in yesterday's (Mar. 23) "Today" was heart breaking. The "Pilot" and "Today" must change their editorial policy regarding whose names are published.
Jeff, You're welcome. My elderly aunt almost died for taking too much Halcion. I, too, itch when I take opioid pain meds.
Thanks to all involved in securing the restoration of the Arnold Barn. I support giving the green light to Sarah Fox and Fox Construction to begin stabilizing the collapsing barn.
Thanks for the reminder, Bill.
Jeff: Here's a link that might be helpful.
Halcion, also a member of the benzodiazepine family, made headlines because of its abuse and side effects. Benzos are Schedule IV drugs (low risk of addiction), while opiates are in Schedules I and II. Go figure.
Medicare and Medicaid were created during the presidency of Lyndon Johnson in 1965. Sadly, funding those two important programs has become a political football (nightmare?). Civilized or not, those of us who don't have to worry about getting medical care (especially our members of Congress and the Senate) owe it to our less fortunate fellow citizens to offer them access to healthcare (other than through the E.R.).
I agree. Thank you, Judy.
There was a big difference between what insurance companies paid me for one hour of psychotherapy. Oddly enough, Medicaid became the most consistent and reliable payer. Some of the private insurance companies spent more time and money not paying me than it would have cost them to pay me. You get the picture?
Sounds like SSPD needs more detectives.
Could those buildings be any uglier?
