I wouldn't mind Fox News as long as Murdoch didn't own it. He's a weasel.

I was driving a school bus when a ten year old Down Syndrome kid decided to throw a tantrum. It was ten times worse than an average kid's tantrum. There was no reasoning, no compromise, and no end to it. You know what he was demanding? He wanted me to drive to his grandmother's house in another town...

At the DMV, the only reason why I got a driver's permit was because I was with someone they knew. There was a mistyping with the first letter of my name and only half the letter showed up on my birth certificate. Apparently that is pretty bad...so technically I guess I am not a citizen if my birth ...

So there's this crap about birth certificate vs. certificate of live birth thing. I have a copy of my original birth certificate filed with the Register of Deeds four days after I was born. It has the seal and signatures and everything else that Birthers consider holy. You know what it says at the t...

I gave it up over seven years ago. The one or two a day of 30 years ago became a 200 ml bottle of vodka and a six-pack of beer every day habit. Screwed me up big time. Gave me a pot belly and high blood pressure. Was drinking fun? In retrospect, nope. It wasn't. It was an amazing waste of time and m...

I knew an OB nurse that would turn red and get real embarrassed when someone would mention circumcision. That was a real problem, considering that the newborn male circumcision rate at our hospital was 98%.

I had some cool side effects while on Prozac in Summer 1991. I'd stay awake for 22 hours at a time and sleep for two hours, then repeat the cycle. I stopped the med, but the side effects lasted for another two weeks. Got a lot done, but I also started to get insomnia hallucinations after a while. I ...

After years of dicking around with different SSRI's, a wise psychiatrist realized that I didn't have a seratonin problem. I had a norepinephrine problem. He prescribed Cymbalta and within two weeks, my depression lifted and anxiety diminished. That was four years ago. He also prescribed Buspar for t...

As a recovering alcoholic, I can't have any meds that could lead to cross addiction. I take Buspar for anxiety and it works quite well.
