NEW SHORT THOUGHTS

Published March 5, 2021 by Nan Mykel

A reasonable (not one-sided) article on Alter Net caught my attention today. It was by Issac J. Bailey March 04, 2021 and appears to be free of so much of the extreme bias floating around today. It relates to the firing of a N.Y. Times reporter who used the “n” word. The clarity of it is refreshing.

I’m curious why two Capitol police committed suicide on or after Jan. 6. Maybe it’s due to confidentiality or something, in which case that’s okay. The limited performance of many capitol police suggests either poor training or poor screening, but I guess the same could be said for the Defense Department and the Pentagon.

It kinda hurts to see another momentary hero bite the dust, with Cuomo’s hiding the nursing home deaths. And did “Me Too” have more impact than “Black Lives Matter?” I’m not sure I’ve seen Trump criticized as much for his behavior and verbiage re disrespect of women. Seems everywhere I look someone is experiencing the Humpty Dumpty Syndrome. .

I cannot understand how anyone could admit that they want to make it more difficult for others to vote. That sounds almost as dishonorable as admitting you want your child dead.

Here’s a head’s up if you ever suffer vertigo. It’s called the head tilt procedure and a physical therapist trained in the procedure can fix it. Two sessions with a similar therapist and my daughter was permanently cured of a really disconcerting 6-month bout of it. The therapist explained something about a ball bearing in the head getting off kilter…

Almost as good news is the “drug to fight obesity” reported in the March 3, 2021 The Week magazine pg. 23, basedon an article in the New York Times. Robert Kushner from Northwestern University says the findings mark “the start of a new era of effective treatment for obesity.” People on it reportedly lose20 percent of their body weight. It’ a “semaglutide, already in use for type 2 diabetes.” It is a synthetic version of G.L.P.-1, a naturally occurring hormone released by the body after a filling meal.
