I'm not usually one to read columnist's diatribes in the papers, particularly from religion-based columists. But this one caught my eye.

I find myself hard-pressed not to agree with the man. Particularly if you read further down...

Another one of those things...

From the NY Times, "Medical Papers by Ghostwriters Pushed Therapy"

Quote:
Newly unveiled court documents show that ghostwriters paid by a pharmaceutical company played a major role in producing 26 scientific papers backing the use of hormone replacement therapy in women, suggesting that the level of hidden industry influence on medical literature is broader than previously known...

Rites of Spring

Posted 05-01-2009 at 03:50 PM by ostarella (Me own blog...)

Every place has its own "spring rites" - the things you see that assure you that, yes, winter is over! I keep noticing the differences between when I lived in the city and now, back in my home town.

A small farming community is, to me, the best place to notice the changes. It starts with farmers' hats. From thick and warm (some with flaps) to well-worn cotton - that's the first sign. Then from coats to heavy jackets, moving to the light-weights - not quite ready for only shirts...

Kids...

Posted 10-14-2008 at 12:54 AM by ostarella (Me own blog...)

Well, my son and his girlfriend are skating around the issue of getting married. I think I'm glad they're just "mentioning" it, and know that it's not something for the near future. Not that I'm against it. She's a very nice girl and I really like her. I'm just divided, I guess, on what I want for him.

On the one hand, I want him focusing more on his career. He's got a good job, good pay, and he likes it - but we both know it's not what he wants to be doing. I keep...
