What took you so long?

Elizabeth Harmer-Dionne, said, "For years, whenever I attended Monday night meetings of the Cambridge City Council, a gentleman quietly sat in the back of the Sullivan Chamber. A worn cardboard placard hung from his neck by a piece of twine, bearing the slogan 'Impeach Healy.' I regarded him with patronizing good-humor, grateful for the local eccentrics who add color to Cambridge.

It turns out that Mr. Placard understood more than I."

The sign, my sign, read "Overthrow Healy Rossi." Richard Rossi is the deputy City Manager. The City Manager cannot be impeached. He was not elected. He is an appointee of the City Council.

Not Just Politicians Are Corrupt

Far too much focus on corruption of politicians. More scrutiny is needed of the corrupt voters and the corrupt journalists and comedians who support and defend the elected criminal class. If the problem were only corrupt politicians it would be manageable.

The flaw in the legal system is that corrupt public officials are not held accountable for their malfeasance and negligence. Taxpayers are cheated twice. First for the salaries of the criminal officials and again when they must pay for the harms to others by the official misconduct.

The email providers have no legal scruples. One corrupt employee can tamper with an account copying whatever. The FBI has software which can be installed to send a copy of all emails to them, and to copy all keystrokes. FBI agents murdered innocents. What's a little email tampering to them? On my YouTube account someone put a picture purporting to be me in my profile; and an ad with my name pretending to me. The internet companies like the phone companies before them need to screen their employees and scrutinize their behavior better.

Emotions Rule Journalism?

Misguided priorities again. 90,000 Americans die each year due to medical negligence some as simple as doctors not washing their hands between patients. Why the focus on a negligible number of deaths by older drivers? Gelzinis never lets facts get in the way of his emotions. He tells us his father was a very careful driver. Then he says that older drivers need to have their licenses pulled. Huh? Why not test the bad drivers and and encourage the good drivers like his father? Poor or no logic in this column.

Diversity Leads to Mistrust

"A bleak picture of the corrosive effects of ethnic diversity has been revealed in research by Harvard University's Robert Putnam, one of the world's most influential political scientists. His research shows that the more diverse a community is, the less likely its inhabitants are to trust anyone -- from their next-door neighbor to the mayor."

"In the presence of diversity, we hunker down," said Putnam. "We act like turtles. The effect of diversity is worse than had been imagined. And it's not just that we don't trust people who are not like us. In diverse communities, we don't trust people who do look like us."

"Professor Putnam," said the Financial Times, "found trust was lowest in Los Angeles, 'the most diverse human habitation in human history.'"

No Forest, Only Trees

Teenagers in 2009 believe that there were always iPods, MP3s, wireless internet, automobiles, telephones, airplanes, television, and radio. Do young journalists in Boston believe there always was a one-party state government and that is normal? Do students get through journalism school without learning the basics of a functioning democracy, allowing them to mislead their readers?

Bernstein goes from the sublime ("Roast pork," Boston Phoenix, May 27, 2009) to the ridiculous with his fundamentally flawed article. (DAVID S. BERNSTEIN, "Mass betrayal," Boston Phoenix, June 19, 2009) He creates a fantasy of liberal reformers versus anti reform (corrupt?) traditionalists in the MA legislature. He contrasts those opposing change with those who try to change. But change in this screen is no change at all. The legislature remains a one-party system. Even if the "liberal reformers" gain control they will become the pigs in Animal Farm continuing corrupt one party rule.

State reps say there is a need for systemic and cultural change. Not at all. What is needed is an opposition party. For Bernstein liberal reformers are incorruptible, there is no need for a two-party system because Democrats are angels. Republicans are mentioned once in a negative context as if criticizing the opposition was dirty politics. How many times a day does Obama blame Bush for his "inheritance?"

Saying "an eight-year limit on the Speaker's term [. . .] limits consolidation of power." is nonsense. With one-party rule there is no limit on the abuses of that party. He says DeLeo gives "[reps] the freedom to act independently." Oh? Then it's not the lack of a spine that prevents that? Does DeLeo issue spines to these members?

Is Bernstein clueless in his vision of state government? He writes as if trying to keep Noam Chomsky's "herd bewildered." What part of one-party state does he not understand? Cosmetics will not suffice. A strong opposition party is the solution. Journalists who support democracy can inspire citizens to create one.

In a companion piece (ADAM REILLY, "Weakened watchdogs," Boston Phoenix,
June 19, 2009) Adam Reilly asks "If the Globe shrinks, will Beacon Hill run amok?" The answer is only if journalists let them. Reilly values quantity over quality. In New York state Fred Dicker exposed more malfeasance than other reporters assigned to the capital. The Albany Times Union, the Albany County DA, and the state Public Integrity Commission helped former Gov. Spitzer's staff cover up malfeasance and abuses of power.

Boston has a different problem -- the blind leading the blind. Reilly is a media critic on a PBS show yet fails to recognize or to report the dangers of one-party government. Hello? David Letterman continues to bash Gov. Sarah Palin and her family. The election ended 7 months ago. Plenty of new clowns in DC but he is as blind to them as Reilly and Bernstein are blind to the source of the corruption.

Boston journalists fail to focus on exposing corruption. Instead readers get political styles coverage and analysis. The focus is on public officials not on voters who elect them. Many MA voters (and journalists?) support corrupt government and knowingly re-elect corrupt officials. Outraged voters who read trying to keep informed are being cheated by journalists.

Homosexuals: Politicians Lied! Shocking!!!

The homosexual lobby reveals how it gets its way, by buying off politicians. They purchased the MA legislature to deny MA citizens the right to vote on a citizen initiative. They thwart the will of the people through the judiciary and corrupt politicians in several states. Why don't homosexuals support voting on what marriage is? They lose every time citizens exercise their right to vote. Homosexuals demand their rights and deny rights to others. They call critics haters. They are the most intolerant special interest group, corrupting democratic institutions. They are surprised that Biden took their money and ignores them? Did they expect politicians to stay bought? They played the corrupt system and now they are getting burned. Boo Hoo. BORING!

Youth Seek Sex Not Love

[Final paragraph of article]
NPR failed to answer the big questions behind this story: What happened in society that makes young adults afraid to trust each other with their emotions? What changed so that getting busy with a random person is now more favorable than looking for a person to build and share a life? Is this simply a way of avoiding the responsibilities of adulthood?

The greatest harm results from good intentions. Psychiatrists demonize emotions, and made them into mental illnesses. Depression a common human experience not mental illness. Hate is targeted for elimination by non profit corporations. Government appropriates grants to eliminate hate and racism. In order to succeed humans must be eliminated. Along with humans come a full set of emotions. They are neither good nor bad, but as Plato suggested must be recognized, understood and controlled. Psychiatrists claim superior knowledge about what is best and teach that emotions are bad. They manipulate humans emotionally for control and for profit. Is the growth of psychiatry in any way connected to the fear of youth to experience emotions?

Role of Fathers

"one third of American children live without any father and that, in many inner cities, the out-of-wedlock birth rate exceeds seventy percent. Also well known, though rarely acknowledged, is the devastation that such a lack of paternity has wreaked on children and society more generally. Fatherless children have rates of incarceration, criminal activity, possession of firearms, poverty, drug and alcohol abuse, teen pregnancy, incompletion of school, and overall parental neglect and maltreatment alarmingly higher than their two-parent counterparts."

Obama and the Jews
Obama Breeds Climate of Hate Against Jews|
By Rabbi Dr. Morton H. Pomerantz

Our new president did not tell a virulent anti-Semite to travel to the
U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington to kill Jews, but he is
most certainly creating a climate of hate against us.

It is no coincidence that we are witnessing this level of hatred toward
Jews as President Barack Obama positions America against the Jewish state.

Just days ago Obama traveled to Cairo, Egypt. It was his second trip in
a short time to visit Muslim countries. He sent a clear message by not
visiting Israel.

But this was code. In Cairo, Obama said things that pose a grave danger to Jews in Israel, in America and everywhere.
And if his views are not vigorously opposed they will help create a
danger as great as that posed by the Nazis to the Jewish people.
Just last week, Obama told his worldwide audience — more than 100
million people — that the killing of six million Jews during the
Holocaust was the equivalent of Israel’s actions in dealing with the

This remark is incredible on its face, an insult to the six million Jews
who died as a result of Hitler’s genocide — and it is a form of
revisionism that will bode evil for Jews for years to come.

While Obama acknowledged that “six million Jews were killed — more than
the entire Jewish population of Israel today” — his discussion about the
Holocaust was followed by this statement: “On the other hand, it is also
undeniable that the Palestinian people — Muslims and Christians — have
suffered in pursuit of a homeland.”
“On the other hand . . . ”?

Obama’s clever construct comparing the mass genocide of six million Jews
to the Palestinian struggle will not be lost on the estimated 100
million Muslims who tuned into to hear him.

Perhaps it was not lost on James W. von Brunn, the 88-year-old white
supremacist identified as the alleged attacker Wednesday at the
Holocaust Museum. He apparently felt that he could easily take
retribution against the Jews for the atrocities Obama implies they are
guilty of.

At first blush Mr. Obama’s speech seemed rosy, optimistic — one that
espoused tolerance and understanding.

If you scratch the surface it is a dangerous document that history will
view as a turning point for America and Israel — one that will lead to
dangerous times ahead for both Jews and believing Christians.

The immediate danger posed by Obama’s speech is in its incredible
re-writing of the history of Jews, Christians and Muslims from Medieval
times to the present.

Obama, continually throughout his speech, talks of Islam’s peaceful
intent. And while there are certainly Koranic verses that support this
interpretation, Islam has a long and bloody history of violence against
fellow Muslims, Jews and Christians.

Has Obama not heard about the Muslim’s violent conquest of the Middle
East, Spain and half of Western Europe? Was he never taught that the
Crusades sought to turn back this Muslim onslaught that demanded
subjugated populations convert or die?

In his almost hour-long speech, there is not a single word about Islam’s
well known and checkered past.

Ironically, the American president offered plenty of references to what
he sees are America’s evils, such as its “colonialism” and history of

“For centuries, black people in America suffered the lash of the whip as
slaves and the humiliation of segregation,” Obama told his audience,
citing a litany o f American shortcomings. He failed to mention that
Arab Muslims were the greatest slave traders in the history of humanity.

According to Obama, Israelis, too, are guilty of wrongdoing, especially
when it comes to their supposed maltreatment of the Palestinians.

Isn’t it odd an American president would go to a foreign country and
slander his own country and its long-time ally?

At the same time he praises — unconditionally — a religion and culture
that has a long history of being antithetical to the very values that
have made America a great nation?

Mr. Obama even has the unbelievable gall, when talking about the
treatment of Muslim women, to condemn Western countries for attempting
to stop Muslim women from using the full facial cover, or hijab. This is
a symbol of Muslim subjugation of women.

Listen to what Obama said: “Likewise, it is important for Western
countries to avoid impeding Muslim citizens from practicing religion as
they see fit - for instance, by dictating what clothes a Muslim woman
should wear.”

And Obama not only ignores the gross subjugation of women in many Arab
societies — he does not mention even once the almost total religious
intolerance throughout the Muslim world against Christians and Jews.
In his speech, Obama’s only plea for Muslim women living in Muslim
countries is that they should be afforded an education.

How about a discussion of the beheading of Arab women for “crimes” such
as adultery? How about the malicious treatment of women in Muslim
countries who choose not to wear the hijab?

Obama insists that Islam has promoted tolerance and that in Islamic
societies such ideals have flourished.

Obama claimed that “as a student of history” he understands more than
most the truth about “civilization's debt to Islam.”

He added, “And throughout history, Islam has demonstrated through words
and deeds the possibilities of religious tolerance and racial equality.”

Does he not know that a Jew or Christian would be beheaded in Saudi
Arabia for practicing their religion today, now, this minute?
Of course, Obama offers not one example of where religious freedom is
truly tolerated in the Muslim world. Yet, he proudly told his audience
that in every state of the union and throughout the U.S. there exist
more than 1,200 mosques.

But why, Mr. President, is there no Christian Church or Jewish synagogue
operating within the borders of Saudi Arabia? Not even one.
Why in many countries, including your host=2 0Egypt, Christian churches
have suffered vicious and continual persecution? Why is a once vibrant
Cairo Jewish community — a home for the likes of Maimonides — today
practically extinct?

Why, dear president, has the ancient Christian community in the West
Bank and places like Bethlehem been almost completely wiped out by the
modern Muslim onslaught?

“On the other hand,” to quote you Mr. President, you avoided mentioning
some other truths.

Let’s start with the Israeli Arabs who can claim one of the highest
standards of living in the Arab world. Indeed, they have more rights
than Arabs in any Muslim country, their religious freedom is completely
protected, and they even vote in free elections.

Tell me what Muslim country matches Israel’s record in protecting its

Even Arabs in the West Bank, during the time of Israeli control, saw
their standard of living rise dramatically. Today, Arabs there are among
the best educated in the world, thanks to Israel.
In your revisionist view, Israel has acted to harm these people. But it
was not Israel that could not abide by United Nations resolutions
clearly setting borders for both the state of Israel and an entity that
had never existed before named Palestine.

You cleverly omitted any discus sion of these facts, or the continual
attacks against the state of Israel over six decades by its Muslim
neighbors. Nor is it the Israelis who persecute from time to time the
Coptic Christians of Egypt.

No, Mr. President, I do not accept your assertion that you are seeking
religious tolerance or that you are seeking to protect Jews. I do not
accept it because you are inventing a false history to fit your own

Mr. President, I am deeply disturbed that you would offer such a
distortion of truth in the hopes of creating a lasting peace. A lasting
peace cannot be created out of lies, distortions and half truths.

You profess to be a Christian. But you seem more intent on protecting
Muslims. In your speech you talked openly of your Muslim heritage, your
admiration of their way of life, and so forth. You said in your speech
that you have made one of your chief aims of your presidency repairing
the image of Islam.

Why did you hide these views from the American public during the recent
presidential campaign?

Why, as president, did you fully bow to the Saudi king, who refuses to
allow any religious freedom for any Christian or Jew?

You have made clear, by your words and assertions, that you are
re-positioning the United States away from Israel, America’s lone
democratic ally in t he Mid-East.

You have made clear through your statements and those of your minions
that Israel should, under no circumstances, prevent Iran from getting
nuclear weapons.

And yes, you have promised to retaliate against Iran if it ever attacks
Israel with nuclear weapons.

But you know full well that if Iran succeeds in its admitted goal of
“wiping the Jewish state off the map” — and hits this tiny nation with
nuclear warheads — there will be no Israel for the U.S. to retaliate on
behalf of.

Some Jews may be naïve, but we are not stupid.

Barrios Quits as Human Services Lobbyist

Barrios exits the revolving door of Massachusetts politicians and human services providers to become an advocate for "the equality of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people." ("Barrios resigning as head of Blue Cross foundation," Boston Herald, June 17, 2009) Will GLAAD work to allow non homosexuals to become FBI agents? Homosexuals currently have an unequal opportunity in that all-homosexual US agency. Will Barrios work to allow non-homosexuals in the all homosexual City government of Cambridge and at the all homosexual MA state house too?

Barrios leaves the city and state where life imitates art. Animal Farm is acted out where formerly oppressed homosexuals are now the oppressors. This guarantees success for Barrios.

His new position is appropriate. He brings his $500,000 campaign fund which he can use to explore new elective offices. He can concentrate on his own career. Non brain dead people know not to criticize homosexuals in this country.

Discrimination against homosexuals in this country has gone underground.
Homosexual organizations and their useful media idiots bully anyone who speaks against homosexuals as gods and goddesses. Criticizing homosexual government and media abuses bring the wrath of the GLAAD. Now GLAAD has the King of Mass homosexuals as its leader.

In 1999 when he was first elected to the MA state house I requested his help with a bill I wrote to create protections for human subjects used in medical experiments. I told Mr. Barrios that the reason for so many abuses of vulnerable persons was the failure of government to enforce discrimination laws for persons with disabilities. Mr. Barrios said to me, "I'm not going to change the world." Then he got up and walked away. He consistently ignored the needs of persons with disabilities during his tenure as an elected official of all the people. He continued this attitude while working for the human services lobbyist as President. With no executive experience Barrios was appointed to lead a MA foundation. Is he another of the chief executives who run corporations into the ground and then get enormous bonuses for destroying the company?

On one occasion after I criticized him publicly he used his position on the Homeland Security Committee of the state to have their agents follow me and harass me. For Cambridge that is par.

Cambridge Police Violate First Amendment

An American citizen who Cambridge police believe has a disability was taken into custody and forced to be evaluated by a government psychiatrist against his will. The man was at City Hall seeking an audience with the Mayor and the City Manager, both public officials. He is not reported to have offered either official any money. The First Amendment guarantees the Right to Petition, the Right to Access, and the Right to be Heard all parts of the First Amendment. Those rights were violated as they are daily in the lawless city.

This is a pervasive example of police violating city, state and US laws on discrimination based upon disability. Neither the office of the City Manager nor the Mayor made any effort to accommodate this man who police believe has a disability.

Due to unlawful police action the basic Constitutional Rights of this citizen was denied. The City Manager was found guilty of violating the rights of another citizen and discriminating based upon race. The court awarded the citizen $6 million so far including interest. Since the City Manager spends other people's money he remains unconcerned about this court ordered payment. The Mayor and her over paid colleagues on the City Council are also unconcerned about this multi million dollar taxpayer bill.

The Mayor is a proud black lesbian single mother. She allegedly knows about discrimination but allowed her employees to abuse the rights of this vulnerable man.

If he appeared at City Hall with cash in hand would he be dismissed unceremoniously as he was? I do not think so. Well funded and politically connected citizens have easy access to these two self serving officials who openly exhibit their arrogance and disrespect for individuals with disabilities. But they also show their contempt for the laws of the city, the state and the US.

The police are unable to prevent shooting deaths in this "superior" city which hosts Harvard and MIT. Two drug connected Cambridge youths were shot dead in Cambridge in two months. A third shooting sent a third youth to the hospital. History shows that police corruption varies directly with the murder rate.

The Cambridge police have plenty of manpower to harass persons with disabilities and critics of the institutionalized abuses of power of public officials and politicians. The local paper makes fun of the man with a disability as one would expect from journalists who obey the homosexual lobby. Cambridge is an example of life imitating art -- Animal Farm lives in the city. All former victims of abuse have become abusers themselves. How very typical.

A female psychiatric student pleaded guilty to drugging her boyfriend, another psychiatric student. The article shows how psychiatrists and the courts use psychiatry as an excuse for criminal acts. She says, "Here I was training in psychiatry and I missed my own sickness." Sickness does not a criminal make. But many professionals believe that mental illness is a crime. This shows the source of negative bias toward persons accused of mental illness. Psychiatrists join police, prosecutors, judges, lawyers and journalists expressing their personal animosity toward such persons. Psychiatric illnesses are created by consensus.

Character Assassination is not Humor

Agree with above comments about last 3 paragraphs of column. (Margery Eagan, "NOW takes the side of right in Sarah Palin vs. Dave Letterman," Boston Herald, June 14, 2009) -Letterman was doing character assassination not jokes. Many media bullies defend his shameful attacks on a 14-year-old. Journalist cowards focus on the Alaska Governor rather than the clueless Affirmative Action president who is destroying the nation with his misguided economic and military policies. Letterman is a shameless useful idiot self centered pig.

Why Not Homicide?

Anything goes except homicide? (Howie Carr, "Paul Moccia’ An Un-American Idol," Boston Herald, June 14, 2009) What about Martarano who killed 19 serving about 7 months for each murder then getting a $20,000 bonus from the US taxpayer? Not just the State House is run by organized crime. Face up to it. Politicians, Turnpike officials, police and wherever there is a pension there are criminals. How can you rid the state of a crime family which controls government mechanisms? What are those best practices which academics speak about? Oh and are the universities free from members and associates of crime families?

Hidden Barriers

This industry oriented article promoting more funding for more treatment omits the basic Constitutional rights of patients. (SARAH KORONES, "STATE PANEL TO MAKE MENTAL ILLNESS AKIN TO ERECTILE DYSFUNCTION," Weekly Dig, June 10, 2009) Health Care for All lobbies for health care as a human right. Constitutional rights are real but remain unenforced for persons accused of mental illness. Matt Noyes (got them covered either way do ya? Yes and No!) says, "perhaps the biggest barrier to addressing these issues [non hospital care, transitioning back to the community, etc.] is the stigma surrounding mental illness."

That's industry talking points. No stigma, more people seeking treatment. Worse stigma comes from professionals -- psychiatrists, psychologists, lawyers, police, prosecutors, judges, and journalists. They deny equal access to Constitutional rights to persons accused of mental illness.

Health Care for all promotes more information but excludes former clients and civil rights activists who argue that psychiatry is not a valid form of treatment. Their position is shut out of the one-sided debate.

Must Know Problem Before Being Able to Solve It

This is tilting at windmills. You cannot solve a problem unless you know what the problem is. The state is run by organized crime. All state and US offices obey the master of the crime family, probably an administrator at one of the universities. Now figure out how to get the government mechanism back under the control of the people. Only three speakers in a row? Just changing the occupants of the state and US offices does not change who runs the state.

Man on Anti Depressants Lost Off Cruise Ship

"Hagel Smith has said her husband's family refuses to acknowledge the possibility that his intoxication from alcohol and prescription drugs may have been a factor in an accidental death. Instead, she said they have insisted Smith was a victim of foul play, despite a lack of evidence.
[George] Smith was taking the antidepressant Zoloft and Clonazepam, which treats anxiety and panic disorders, according to Hagel Smith's attorney."

Gun Violence in Cambridge

Keeping poor people segregated in projects breeds hopelessness and crime. Jane Jacobs (Death and Life of Great American Cities) and Sudhir Venkatesh (Gang Leader for a Day) recognized this. But segregation rules even in diverse (Ahem!) Cambridge MA.

Cambridge city police are well trained to address street crime but have little focus on gangs, on institutional crime and openly discriminate based on class. Residents of the almost totally liberal city expect police to make their unsafe neighborhoods safe. The residents must take the initiative. But in Cambridge that is unlikely to happen.

No Snitchin' at Harvard

This letter was published in the Boston Herald on June 11, 2009 here




No snitchin' rules at Harvard. Why do police expect young people in poor neighborhoods to snitch on drug dealers and shooters, when privileged members of the Harvard community remain silent. If doctors, lawyers, police and politicians do not snitch on their colleagues why should poor people snitch on their associates?

"a Supreme Court ruling that upheld religious groups' right to the use of public institutions."

55-Hour Erection: Prisoner Sues

A New York State prisoner sues the state for psychiatric drug abuse. SEROQUEL is a mood-stabilizing medication approved by the FDA to treat both the highs and lows of bipolar disorder. The prisoner says the prison nurse increased the dosage causing his erectile dysfunction.

Psychiatric Drugs Kill

Until the FDA is cleansed of drug company lobbyists its decisions must be enjoined.
(Matthew Perrone, "Drugs for children weighed," The Associated Press, Boston Globe,
June 6, 2009) "The agency is not required to follow the group's advice, though it usually does." Duh!

Mental illnesses are created by consensus. There are no scientific basis for these illnesses nor any pathologies. Only psychiatrists can see mental illnesses. The comment "These risks are of particular concern in pediatric patients because of the lifelong nature of these disorders," by the FDA director for psychiatric products indicates he is a lobbyist for the industry.

Omitted from this industry puff piece is the fact that anti depressants are causally connected to suicidal thoughts in teens and adults. Stop the deaths caused by psychiatric drugs, ban them.

Touching Depends on Where

Since when is touching a woman's leg a sexual act? I am shocked! I always touch women's legs when I meet them. It is a way to show affection like shaking a man's hand, no different. Touching a woman's breasts is another gray area which depends on the setting. Prison guards are jealous homosexuals.

Clueless Voters, Criminal Officials

Here's another of the delightful Harvard Law School grads who chill protected speech. It appears that neither the constitutional law professor Hussein Obama (Don't listen to Rush LImbaugh), nor Cadillac Deval ever read the US Constitution. Or they think it only applies to them and those who agree with them. Two African American politicians whose ancestors were denied basic rights are now denying rights to white males. How ironic that these two black Harvard lawyer politicians now retaliate and abuse their power violating the Constitution in the name of political correctness. What a great way to destroy the US and the freedoms of the past. How long will the clueless voters elect these crooked lawyers?

Dehumanizing Works

"The teenagers who commit these crimes think no one cares about the homeless so they can get away with it [. . . o]ften they do, as the crimes largely go unreported." (Elizabeth Gibson, "Homeless assaulted most often by teens," The Columbus Dispatch, Ohio, Boston Herald, June 4, 2009) Isn't it the same with suspects in police custody and persons accused of mental illness? Dehumanizing works. Calling a person a disease as in "a schizophrenic" or "a paraplegic" or "a scum bag" or "a dirt bag" makes it all possible.

Misguided Priorities

The priorities of journalists is mind-boggling. (Margery Eagan, "It’s time to fix this aging problem," Boston Herald, June 4, 2009) How many deaths are caused by driving mishaps by aged drivers? How do the figures compare with the 90,000 civilians who die each year due to medical negligence, some as intellectually challenging as failing to wash one's hands? Focusing on vulnerable people namely elders shows bias of the bully journalists. Why do journalists fear the medical profession? Are journalists as spineless as politicians?

Omitted from these comments and the article is pervasive Poor Self Esteem of women with brilliant minds and/or beautiful bodies.

Jay Leno is Professional

Humor is like beauty. It is in the ears and eyes of the beholder. Passive viewers only know their reaction to the comics. Performers know writers provide the material. Timing and delivery is what Leno does better than any of the current late night hosts. When young guests try to get an advantage on Leno, he puts them in their place. Jay is polite to his guests who think it is easy to do comedy. Letterman shows his meanness every night even to his guests. Conan appears to be unhappy in his body.
