RAPID RESPONSE...Daily Commentary on News of the Day
This is a new section. It will offer fresh, quick reactions by myself to news and events of the day, day by day, in this rapid-fire world of ours. Of course, as in military campaigns, a rapid response in one direction may occasionally have to be followed by a "strategic withdrawal" in another direction. Charge that to "the fog of war", and to the necessary flexibility any mental or military campaign must maintain to be effective. But the mission will always be the same: common sense, based upon facts and "real politick", supported by a visceral sense of Justice and a commitment to be pro-active. That's all I promise.

Every . . . single . . . word this man says is right on the money.

And, women would benefit far more from using their brains as men do than vice versa.  Sure, being able to emote more is a good thing, but the way men think (relative to women) is FAR more efficient and FAR less stressful.

"SCHMUCK".
An apt word for the comments authored in the article posted below.
That's why we have physician "burn-out", and physician suicide at twice the general rate, and physicians leaving the Profession decades before their time. It's the result of the callow up-bringing and "culture" of the recent generations that manifest in so many other ways...and in this case (being a Physician) changing a silk purse into a sow's ear.
And SHAME on those already - arrived physicians who denigrate the ideals that may still motivate newer classes of medical students despite their surroundings.

Being a Physician is a Calling and a Vocation that has been under siege for decades by stupid, cynical, craven people, some of whom are also non-practising "physicians" seeking only money and power and status among their own.
And it can only be saved for the hundreds of millions of good people who need  them by staying independent, by choosing the field of battle, and by Fighting Like Hell for their patients and for themselves. It can still be done...but not with an 8 hour day, or a 40 hour week, or by referring to Mrs. Jones as "the one in bed 4-B".
After 61 years as a practising physician, I still work a 40 hour week (1/2 time for me), I take all patients who will do their part in the relationship - and I look forward to all of it as a Privilege...while fighting like Hell against the mounting forces that may destroy it all. I'll leave it only in a pine box...a closed pine box so that no one will be sure that I've Left.

The Karakoram Highway (a must see)
If you like curves on mountain roads, this would be the road to try……………
So, you think we know something about construction - think again!
I’m certainly glad to see this road from this perspective because I sure as hell wouldn’t want to drive it …. and I’m doubly sure I couldn’t ride it with someone else driving …..
The Karakoram Highway, extending from Pakistan to China, is fast becoming recognized as the 8th man-made wonder of the world.
Known informally as the KKH, it is the highest paved international road in the world.  At its peak, near the China/Pakistan border, it is one of the world's hardest alpine climbs. The Karakorum Highway connects China and Pakistan across the Karakoram mountain Range, via the Khunjerab Pass.

NOW HEAR THIS!
If an established Asthmatic is not treated with an accurate and complete diagnosis, with effective environmental control - especially involving pets, with an effective (and not excessive) program of anti-allergic and anti-inflammatory medications, with prompt on-call and effective treatment of superimposed respiratory tract infections, and WITH ALLERGY IMMUNOTHERAPY FOR UNAVOIDABLE ALLERGENS, he or she, at whatever age, is BEING POORLY TREATED.
And that is also true - and possibly especially so - for the many patients, undiagnosed by their Pulmonologists, who continue to miss combined Bronchial Asthma and Chronic Bronchitis, mis-labled as "COPD",
Everybody so affected, whether, parent or patient or primary care physician or pulmonologist:
EITHER LEARN, OR GET TO A CERTIFIED ALLERGIST, OR
GET OUT OF THE BUSINESS

"ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK" and "ESCAPE FROM LA".  - NOT THOSE SEQUELS.

This will be the Real Thing.
Originally set in the 1990's, the next Escape from New York will be the real thing, as the island amputates itself from the rest of America with its incessant traffic snarls, its gross air pollution, its vile living conditions for all but the super rich, its ungovernable Leftists - cum - Socialists / Communists. It will become the next Brazilian barrio at its worst. Soon, everyone who has something to offer society, who is willing to work for themselves and families, and who is willing to fight for their rights will have moved: to the suburbs, to the country, AWAY. The same will be true of LA and perhaps a few other cities.
Then America will be Great Again. 
Is that what it will take? We are on that path.

ABOUT PRESIDENT GEORGE H. W. BUSH...ONE FINAL THOUGHT.

Although I would not ordinarily publish the statement noted below, out of respect and out of a lack of personal recollection regarding his four years a Republican President, I absolutely reject the assertion broadly expressed that President Bush 41 was responsible for the dissolution of the Soviet Union.
ABSOLUTELY WRONG; and that I do remember.
The dissolution of the Soviet Union was the direct and entire result of the actions of President Reagan and of Pope John Paul ll throughout the 1980's.
To allege otherwise does disrespect to each of these three good leaders.

NOW HEAR THIS!      "SHOULD WE RETIRE RETIREMENT?"
This may be the most important message you receive this year. EXCELLENT.

Family,
some of you may remember this.
On a couple of occasions, your mother and I drove to Central Ct. State University to attend a Polish Center seminar. On the first occasion, we heard and thereafter were within personal contact distance with Lech Walesa. On the second occasion, we heard Pres. George H.W. Bush. But, before the lecture we were in a common area. There we met and spoke briefly with the  President - and we have a great photo to prove it. Do you have it? Do you want it?
A Fine Man - Old School.
I always thought he could have been more effective throughout his career if he had been more "Real Politic" and less "New World Order". But nevertheless....
REST IN PEACE.

ABOUT THE ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH: THE CLERGY AND THE LAITY.

This comment is prompted by a recent article by William A. Donohue, PhD, President and Publisher of "Catalyst", the organ of the Journal of the Catholic League For Religious And Civil Rights.
Since the launching of my web site (asthma.drsprecace.com), I have maintained a Link to the Catholic League, to accompany my many years-long subscription. Professor Donohue has long performed a vital and effective service in defending our Church from constant and often scurrilous attacks.
That is why I consider an article he published in the December, 2018 issue of the Catalyst to be a misfire, in tone and to some extent in substance.
See: "Bishops Beware Of Some Lay Catholics" (p3).
The tone is harsh, judgmental and dismissive.
The substance paints with a broad brush that fails to give credence to the role of the Laity ("the Body of the Church") as clearly defined in the Catechism of the Catholic Church and as commonly preached from the pulpit. The Laity never subscribed to the "Pray, Pay and Obey" dictum emanating from some quarters in the past.
To this must now be added the alleged and also proven misfeasance and malfeasance of too many of our Clergy during recent decades.
The Laity must therefore now take a more direct role in stabilizing this listing Ship. That role must be on an individual basis and perhaps also on an organized basis. See my efforts, going back decades, to discharge my personal duty in this regard (the web site Category entitled "The Catholic Church", now encompassing about 200 personal articles).
As we practiced in Typing Class:
"Now is the time for all men to come to the aid of their country" (Church).

MORE, EVER MORE, ON THE STATE OF THE STATE OF CONNECTICUT.

As any reader will know, I am not a fan either of those governing this State or of those voters constantly voting in the same mistakes.

Several recent articles, appearing in The Day or in CT Mirror justify my position.

  1. "Lingering Questions Remain About School Desegregation In Connecticut." A lot of data, none of it good.
  2. "School-Based Health Centers Take Leading Role In Fighting Teen Suicide." Where are the parents?
  3. "Address Mental Health To Stop Mass Killings" (a fine Letter to the Editor by Chelsea Santos"). It occurs to me that psychiatrists have long taken the approach condemned in medical practice: putting a band-aid on cancer; or - faced with a multitude of acute patients - taking the sickest patient for many hours of care while others die for lack of a timely tracheostomy (aka Triage).
  4. "A Second Effort To Sound A Fiscal Alarm In Connecticut".
  5. "Fiscal Panel's Formula for Revitalizing CT Provokes Democratic Resistance."
    The "Yea, But's" are out in force.
