I subscribe to a number of free news services and receive their daily Emails. Yesterday arrived this interesting medical story.

Certain types of bacteria are very dangerous to the stomach and intestines and cannot be treated with an antibiotic that does not also kill the necessary good bacteria in these organs. There do exist antibiotics that will both kill the evil bacteria as well as the good ones.

The problem is that once you kill the good bacteria resident in the intestines or stomach, it does not just re-populate.

Some doctors have perfected what is known as fecal transplant, whereas you get the stools from a relative and bring it to your doctor. He has it checked to see that it is healthy cocka and then has it put in probably an ordinary Oster blender with some saline, making a fecal milk shake.

Then it is introduced via the back door and it works just about 100% of the time giving you the good bacteria that has been killed by the broad spectrum anti biotic. (Some people just do it themselves)


What I really appreciated about this was two fold. One is that I didn’t read it over breakfast, and the second was the title of the news feed. Though not totally on point, it said that “The Enema of My Enemy is My Friend”.

Just read an article that shows the Post Office wanting to close thousands of offices. Last time I remember they wanted to cut Saturday delivery. I remember them closing the PO box window after limiting the hours. In each case, the solutions they put forth was not a hole in their administration end of the boat, it was that they gave too much service.

Every time the USPS publishes horrid losses, they act the same crappy way other government agencies, like schools of all levels, and may large corporations like banks. They cut services to the very people they are in business to serve and charge more for the remaining services. Gee folks, this takes lots of brains. They don't cut the administration, the bonuses, the salaries, the benefits, the overhead, and especially not the unions, the retirement funds, etc.

From one of the best postal services in the world, we are deteriorating it to a third world country. The only thing innovative I have seen is the Priority Mail if it fits, it ships. Oh, they have probably installed better mail handling equipment, better post office stamp and package machines, but they have not been innovative enough to compete with fax, Email, UPS, FedEx,
blogs, and other internet services.

And I'll give them this, that Congress who they have to go to for permission, is made up of lots of people who, cumulatively, doesn't seem to have two testicles.

I know little about the entire cost picture, but would vote eagerly for them cutting their own fat at least, equally to the services they want to cut, before allowing any of it.

Someone I never heard of and hope to continue on this "never heard" path wrote a damning article about Keith Olbermann who just left MSNBC.

This right wing Fox News, Wall St. Journal, etc., hypocrite is so happy to see the wonderful voice of Keith Olbermann leave the air. I suppose I'd feel the same way if Hannity, Rush, Bill, etc. etc. all booked passage on the Titanic especially in steerage. Actually, I'd feel happier, but I would not gloat.

What ruffled my feathers was the Salon saw fit to publish this article. I suppose it could have come from Herr Glen Greenwald.

Olbermann is a loved, articulate, super intelligent, caring liberal voice for those who want to hear the polar opposite of the dribble of Fox News. In my view, many of his speeches ranked up there with the likes of Roosevelt, Kennedy and Obama. As a person, Olbermann was someone I grew to adore.

Keith O., I'm going to miss you. The void in my life, will be felt 5 times a week and I hope you rebound somewhere soon.

This was from an article in The Huffington Post, whose helmsman, Arianna Huffington is someone I admire. OK. IBM has created a robot that beat the best of Alex Trebec's all stars and the article suggests that since it can think and is the smartest in the world, that its generation will take over the world, rendering us useless or non-existent.

When I worked for IBM, T.J. Watson was the Chairman and there was never a whisper, an utterance, no less a verbal declaration that he was not endowed with ethereal qualities raised to an apotheosis­, the Caesar of IBM. Don't get me wrong, I was among the 1/2 million or so, employees who were his enthusiast­ic devotees.

Naming the genius robot, Watson, seems, like the Sr. Bush President would say, "just the right thing to do".

Having said that, be it known that Watson would have an emotional explosion, should it have a conversati­on with my ex. No, this is not a slur. She was and is just always right. So, let us not fear that Watson or his predecesso­r HAL will achieve world dominance. We have a living breathing antidote.

The Octomom, Her Doctor and Her Kids.

This blog stems from a Salon story.

I disagree that the media, the talk show hosts and the comedians are punishing the Octomom. The jokes are not funny, the hatred is pathetic and deleterious, and those hard up for a joke or a story only punish her children at a later date should they read about these attacks.

I always had a love/hate feeling about Suze Orman liking the fact that she is a GLBT brethren and helps people. And I dislike, with some intensity, her monumental ego and posturing to be above those poor misguided souls who don't know as much as her about finance. Orman's remark to Nadia that everyone hates her is as disgusting as is untrue. Orman will probably not admit to any wrong. She belongs to the "I'm the only OK one" gang including Sarah Palin and Laura Schlessinger.

The real culprit is Dr. Michael Kamrava who implanted the 8 embryos and he should lose his license for this and be fined an amount large enough to help support the Octomom. He should pay child support for each of the eight from day one to 18 years.

I don't know the current legal state, but implanting more than 2 embryos should require approval from the AMA based on guaranteed ability to support and nurture.

The "N" word

Dr. Laura Schlessinger took some heat over her use of the "N" word to a radio listener and instead of an apology, defended herself with an attack (now known by the Woos media as a push back).

No question, political and social correctness demands that we avoid words that slur entire groups. Dr. Laura reminds me of someone who cannot stand to be wrong and just apologize. She and Sarah Palin share that same DNA; the stupidity of misguided ego; the I can do no wrong; that the paranoia is not mine, it belongs to everyone else.

However, I think that the "N" word must be eradicated by black people for as long as they think it is funny, that it is the "in" thing on BET and other cable channels or anywhere in public as long as it is uttered by black people and others dare not, then I believe it should return to the public Lexicon.

I propose a contract with all black ministers, politicians and community leaders. Permanently stop being bigoted and prejudicial against the gay community and embrace them as your fellow brethren, and require your flock to stop using the "N" word. Set an example that all people are created equal by preaching and living to it, and all of us honkies will stop- using the dreaded word.

There was an article on Salon that I started to suspect was a Public Relations stunt. It was supposed to be written by a feminist who had this wide eyed wonder having discovered the clean vibrant lifestyle of Mormon women. It didn't work for this reader. I had to retrieve a motion sickness bag in case I threw up.

I read enough of this article to know that it really had the look and smell to make Mormons seem like the essence of cleanly scrubbed faces, the wholesome lifestyle and the healthy work ethic. A little like a old Anglo Saxon Protestant photo. But what i believe lurks under the thin facade is the enormous deranged embodiment of bigotry that they embrace with every fiber of their mind and bodies.

Their I'm OK, you're not OK hubris that emanates like a thick poisonous fog from the highest levels of Mormonism is "offensive" - my most charitable term for them. I expect little from their leaders. Church (if you can call it that) leaders are paid to be ideologues. What I am amazed at is that their flock is so mindless not to rise up, throw out the pernicious leaders, and remove all aspects on snark minded bigotry.

Yes, I have an opinion on LDS. It starts with a clothespin and my nose.

The DOJ entered an appeal because a Fed Judge threw out the Defense of Marriage Act. This is an abomination of the highest order.

Eric Holder of DOJ knows the DOMA is wrong. Obama know the same. Holder states that he is just following the law, same lame type of excuse the Nazis gave at Nuremburg. He even admits it is a non partisan sop. That means he is kissing up to politics instead of doing what he knows to be right and that would be no appeal.

Obama states that his opinion on gay marriage is in transition. I say that is bull___. He doesn't want to lose one vote, same as with DADT; he left it up to others and he will do the same with gay marriage. Say one thing but do nothing.

I don't think one gay person; not one man, woman or child in the GLBT community in the United States did not fully support and embrace the equal rights movement of the 60's. Conversely, I don't think one black minister outside of a gay congregation supports the GLBT community. In fact they preach against it and helped defeat gay rights on Prop. 8. Please don't tell me you know one supportive black minister; I don't want to vomit.

So I say to Obama and Holder a thought I borrowed from a Jay Leno piece. Go find where your Testicles are, retrieve them, sew them back on, and then man-up and do what is right.

Sarah Palin and the Crosshairs.

It is mostly the liberal press that is questioning Palin placing what appears to be rifle crosshairs on certain congressional districts. The question goes to whether this can incite the great unwashed, the skin heads, the snake pit crowd, to commit violence.

Did anyone out there in cyber land think that Palin was going apologize? Did newscasters,­editorial writers, journalist­, think that Palin would admit doing any wrong, any oversight, any mis-speak or her public recognition that she inflames her intellectu­ally challenged followers by saying anything purposely to incite?

It seems, from this view, Palin has learned that as long as she does not kill other than innocent animals from a helicopter­; as long as she doesn't personally commit crimes; as long as she acts macho - so loved by the wing nuts, she can deny anything blame anyone or group and go on with the charade knowing that her every statement will be given free publicity on every TV and Radio commentary­.

One month of totally ignoring her would probably have her fade into oblivion forever, forever, forever.

This is about a visiting Portuguese journalist of 65 is found dead, castrated, in a rented room and the suspect is a 20 year old male model.

I am not surprised when a 65 year old messes around with a 20 year old kid. About 2/3 of the older gay pervs on Craig's List advertise for younger. It must be a combination of trying to live in the past or because they are spending or because they have some special considerations, such as endowment or being a top. Usually they try to cover up their intent with dad 4 son or uncle 4 nephew wording.

While I believe that the kids, even a kid model, should not be with someone so much older, they often do it anyway for some of the above reasons. I am not writing because of the age differences or judging the propriety, decency, or visceral benefits if any. Mine is a separate issue.

What I hate about this is that it is a reason for the world's morons to talk trash about gay people. The journalist played in an arena he shouldn't have been in and paid the ultimate price. What really pisses me off is that the journalist was supposed to be a gay advocate. The kid had no business being with grandpa and will pay soon enough. And the wing nuts and press will fill the air in an anti gay feeding frenzy. It is this feeding frenzy that I abhor.

I just read a news feed telling that Americans are split on health care, mostly along party lines.

There are two considerations here. Know that after enormous study, Madison Avenue decided that the demographic for prime time TV ads should be for the 8 year old mind. I glean from this that any poll is useless if the decision should be made based on the polling results.

The second consideration is that although Democrats have their own problems, the Republicans sure seem like they are owned and operated by the insurance companies. I think the journalistic term is "puppets".

Therefore, the Repub worker bees for the insurance companies are telling the brain challenged populace what to believe. One would think that even these little children can recognize lies, especially the absurd ones against health care, but Americans are children who, unfortunately, cannot.

Well, I agree that the use of the "N" word in Huck Finn is pretty derogatory and it is used quite often. Changing it to "Slave" does not seem to be much of an improvement, in fact I think it is a deep south euphemism for the "N" word and just as derogatory. I think a change to "Black" would enjoy the same political correctness as changing the Postman designation to Postal Worker. Now, changing the word "Injun" to "Indian" seems a little absurd. Injun is a cute term. But, that's in the cards. Clemens will surely turn in his grave.

I received an Email from someone who said they were an Indian. I asked him if he was a tech support Indian or a Tomahawk Indian. He said tech support, and we continued the conversation. Later, he proudly said he was from south India. I was taken aback, because the definite inference was that the ones from the north, were, well, just a bunch of no account skinny ass ....... .

All this leaves me with the most horrid thoughts imaginable. Someday, some damn PhD will insist that I use the words, Penis and Virginia when referring to either the adjective or the noun.
