coach knight – fire his abusive butt

Wednesday, November 15th, 2006

 

What did I miss?  Because you are a coach at a University, allows

you to physically abuse and psychologically misuse your players? 

NOT !   And not infront of national television audiences.

If anyone really cares whether or not Coach Knight breaks the record he is aimed at.  His abuse continues…just like that of domestic violence.  Now, the honeymoon period of flowers, forget-me-nots, and joking style.  But, as many Emergency Physicians know,  the cycle of his violence toward players, coaches, referees, and fans will only continue…Coach Knight has proven that already.  Is he on METH?

There is NO lesson learned here.  From the tape, the athlete’s TMJ now has a problem for life…Very difficult area once injured to rehab !  The athlete’s head “flew back” … not a “love tap” like the talking heads were saying on some shows trying to justify that violence.

Coach Few of Gonzaga and other coaches must take the lead here.  No person will gain self-respect, dignity, and optimism by being assaulted by an authority figure…just ask any child abuse victim !

FIRE HIM NOW

SOMEONE WILL GET HURT !   INTERVENE AND COUNSEL. 

WHO BEARS THAT RESPONSIBILITY THEN…THE UNIVERSITY, THE ATHLETIC DIRECTOR, THE MEDIA FOR PLAYING THE TAPE OVER AND OVER, OR HIS FAMILY FOR NOT STEPPING IN….ANY ATTORNEYS OUT THERE TO TAKE THIS ONE ON AGAINST THE UNIVERSITY?  ON BEHALF OF ALL “PEEWEES.”

acetaminophen recall – not "tylenol"

Thursday, November 9th, 2006

URGENT

For my readers, the info reviewed is just acetaminophen from a manufacturer of "generic" drug, used by many "brands" of acetaminophen.  Some mentioned are generic walgreens, cvs, costo type "brands" of acetaminophen.

Therefore, before buying any acetaminophen, ask the seller, pharmacist, or agent of sale, if this bottle is involved.

The probability of any injury approaches zero, if not zero, as this sounds like  compounding machine flecks of metal, not shards.

Again, be informed.  Don't worry, and be happy.

THE DREAM CAME DURING THE NIGHT……..THE SOON-TO-BE SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES LOOKS IN THE MIRROR.  THE ROOM IS EXQUISITELY SMOKEY AND INVITING…LAUGHTER ENGAGES HER EAR…THE MIRROR IMAGE IS DISTORTED AND FADED THROUGH THE CIGAR SMOKE LADEN ROOM…AS SHE MOVES CLOSER TO THE MIRROR THE IMAGE IS AT BEST BLURRED…SHE WONDERS…

SHE APPROACHES CLOSER – CUTTING THE AIR AS SWIMMING THROUGH A COASTLINE FOG…THEN, SUDDENLY HER REFLECTION IS CLEARER, AND CLEARER, AS THE SMOKE RISES…AND THERE SHE IS…NOT THE IMAGE OF CLARITY AS ENVISIONED BY THE POPULUS..BUT SPEAKER HASTERT…"WELCOME TO THE INNER CIRCLE, WHAT TYPE OF CIGAR DO YOU SMOKE?"

THE DEMOCANS SUCCEED THE REPUBLICRATS BY POPULAR VOTE…

V.P. CHENEY STUMPS IN COEUR D ALENE IDAHO ELECTION 2006

Friday, November 3rd, 2006

SENATOR JOHN KERRY RECEIVED A LITTLE IDAHO GOP LAUGHTER DURING THE VP STUMP STOP IN COEUR D ALENE, IDAHO YESTERDAY.  WITHSTANDING A COLD, WET SLEET AND DRIZZLE, HARDY IDAHOANS WITH WIND AT THEIR BACK, CLEARED THE SECRET SERVICE CHECKPOINTS AND CHEERED ON THE VP.  A GROUP OF THE DEMOCRATS ALSO WITHSTOOD THIS ZERO DEGREES WINDCHILL TO OPPOSE THE VISIT BY VICE-PRESIDENT CHENEY.

IN CASTMD.COM, A FEW MONTHS AGO, I WROTE ON THE INFO RELATED TO "HUNTING RISK."  LAUGHTER COMES TO MIND ABOUT THE VP'S GREAT HUNTING EXPEDITION, SO I THOUGHT MAYBE A NEW BLOG ENTRY ON "HUNTING SAFETY" MIGHT BE IN ORDER.  GLAD NO ONE WAS INJURED SEVERELY AS IT COULD HAVE BEEN. 

CASTMD.COM  IS HEALTH RELATED.  HOPEFULLY THE VP WILL REALIZE THAT HE FLEW OVER ONE OF THE TOP EPA SUPERFUND SITES IN THE USA.  AND THAT THE REGION IS STILL DEALING WITH THE 100+ YEARS OF TOXIC WASTE IN THE REGION.  WITH SPOKANE NOW "COVERING UP" THE RIVERBED FOR ABOUT A MILE, FOCUS STILL NEEDS TO BE ON THE ENVIRONMENT… ALSO, HIS TRIPS OVER THE WYOMING AND MONTANA MOUNTAINS AND VALLEYS SHOULD REMIND THE VP OF THE SEVERE ENVIRONMENTAL DISCORD MANY COMPANIES LEFT IN THE WESTERN USA.

CASTMD IS NEUTRAL FOR THE ELECTION.  ALL THE "REPUBLICRATS AND THE DEMOCANS" NEED TO RE-EVALUATE THE ROLE OF GOVERNMENT, TAXATION, AND REPRESENTATION.  REMEMBER, NOT SUPPORTING OUR TROOPS IN THE PAST LED TO SEVERE CHASMS IN OUR AMERICAN PSYCHE AND SPIRIT..WILL THIS SCOURGE REPEAT ITSELF…

THE RISING TOLL OF THE UNINSURED, UNDERINSURED, ILL-TREATED MENTALLY CHALLENGED, HOMELESS, DRUG ADDICTED, METH ADDICTED, AND UNEMPLOYED WILL CONTINUE TO HAUNT THE SAFE AND HEALTHY GROWTH OF THE USA. 

TERRORISM IN OTHER NATIONS RELIES ON SUCH DEPRESSION OF THE PEOPLE….THE WIDENING GAP OF THE LOWER CLASS AND UPPER CLASS CONTINUES… SO, WHAT CAN YOU DO?  VOTE !!!
