Dieing Early Because You Can Not Get Health Insurance – A Possible Future for Americans

I try not to get political in this blog, but current politics are directly involved in our healthcare and that is what I write about in this blog. I write this because all of my work is dedicated to improving the quality of life and for saving lives. Candidate Mitt Romney has been very clear; [...]

HOUSE, SENATE AT ODDS OVER NIH, NCI FUNDING

OK, I give up. I clearly don’t understand American politics! A new House proposal puts research funding at center of broader FY2012 budget debate, but not the way I would have predicted. In a surprise move the Republican House leaders released a draft proposal that would increase fiscal year 2012 funding for the National Institutes [...]

I CAN DO MORE

As Black History Month comes to a close for the 35th time I am left reinvigorated. The family and I went to Washington DC last week for four days to see the sights. It's one of those things that I always wanted to do but like so many things in my childhood it was just [...]

RANDOM? NOT HARDLY.

When I was a young man growing up in 90s Bed-Stuy Brooklyn there were certain things that I eventually grew accustomed to. There was the sound of gunshots in the night. Long hot summers where anything was possible, and violence was inevitable. Conversations that began with "Yo, did you hear about..." And being searched by [...]

Every kind of cancer is horrible. Last month (September) was prostate cancer awareness [...]

HIGHER BUS FARES FOR THIS?

Today the boy and I went on a little outing to the bookstore. I was in the mood for some serious escapism in the form of classic Mr. King and Mr. Kellerman. Sometimes after reading a slave narrative or the life of Medgar Evers you just need something a lot less heavy. My son, a [...]

MEAN PEOPLE

I think I'm tired of mean people. (I say "I think" because I'm not sure if I'm mean people myself or not.) I don't mind people who say or do mean things for the sake of comedy and to make others laugh. Heck, I'm one of those people. But what I've had enough of are [...]

I’VE GOT A BONE TO PICK WITH OBAMA

He's barely been president for a half a day and I've already got a gripe: Why wasn't I invited to at least one of the ten official inaugural balls? I could have shined up my UGGs and shaved for the occasion. I can do the robot and the snake with the best of them. I'm [...]
