Stay healthy

For those thinking about getting a flu shot:

The last time I had the flu was 1991. Collapsed on my mail route in a snow drift. Customer helped me back to my car. Returned to the office and the doctor sent me home for three days. Temp was 103º. Should have been hospitalized. Yes, I’d gotten the flu shot a week before. Never again!

Have I had the flu since? Probably. I shrugged it off as the common cold. I swear the gov’t gave me the flu that year. I’ve refused all flu shots since.

ObamaCare Annoyance

I am being a good citizen and trying to use the page to set myself up for 2015. While it sure is better than last year, I’m still going around and around. I got everything done yesterday but I must have made a mistake, so today I have to delete that application form and do the whole thing over. There is no other way. Once the form is complete, you can’t change it. If you have to change it, you have to kill it first, then do the whole thing over again. Which takes quite some time. An hour or two, maybe more. Gak.

“Welcome to the Marketplace!”

Your Deadline Is December 7th?

How obnoxious! (my old English teacher would be proud. I spelled ‘obnoxious’ correctly without looking it up.)

Medicare. How old do you have to be for Medicare to start bothering you?

I’ve been bothered since my step-father passed away in the early 2000’s. I was only in my forties then, but I started getting Medicare mailings. Also starting getting the anti-American, left-wing AARP mailings. I do encourage AARP to waste money on me.

But I digress.

I received a mailing from something called ‘MediGold’ today. In the context of ObamarrhoidCare and the ‘democracy’ on view in Ferguson, I’d like to parse this mailing…

First my ‘deadline’ is December 7th! A Day That Shall Live In Infamy If I Don’t Sign Up!

Okay, I added that last. But that’s the date on the mailing.

It says ‘pay $0 if you are admitted to the hospital.’ Emphasis on the ‘if.’
By the time you are admitted you will be dead. Your heirs will pay. Whether you were admitted and/or treated.
How much do you pay if you ‘ARE’ admitted?

Pay $0 to go to your family doctor.
You are not allowed to go to your family doctor.

Pay $0 for so many generic drugs!
Except for the generic drugs you actually need!

Get a FREE fitness center membership.
In Iraq. Running from ISIS is excellent cardiovascular exercise.

Other plans available too.
Just check out

Anyway, in honor of Moochelle Obamarrhoid’s ‘healthy school lunch’ law, have a happy tofurkey day. May the Nac Mac Feegles infest her underwear. (wanna bet I get a visit from the Secret Service for that? Crivens!)

We Don’t Deserve No Respect

ObamaCare. because you’re stupid

ObamaCare architect Jonathan Gruber said that lack of transparency was a major part of getting ObamaCare passed, and that it was written in such a way as to take advantage of “the stupidity of the American voter.”

Gruber, the MIT professor who served as a technical consultant to the Obama administration during ObamaCare’s design, also made clear during a panel quietly captured on video that the individual mandate, which was only upheld by the Supreme Court because it was a tax, was not actually a tax.

Gee, isn’t that special? Americans were subjected to a daily hammering lecture from El Residente nearly every single day for well over a year - the same pResident who just yesterday shared his unshaken belief that the only reason his policies failed is because he didn’t sell them to us hard enough - and even after that, far less than half the country wanted this rancid rotting albatross around their necks. Yet it was rammed down our throats by a Democrat heavy legislature. And it was based on a lie. Which (burn in Hell, Roberts, you turncoat) the Supreme Court turned itself inside out and created an alternate reality exactly opposite of how the bill was sold, in order to claim it was valid (yes, it is too a tax!).

But the core of the whole thing was based on the sneering elitist attitude that YOU the voter would be TOO STUPID to see through the smoke and mirrors. Gosh, thanks for that show of respect.

Remember always, how there was no time to read the bill, and that it was so damned urgent to pass it right this second that “you’ll have to pass it to see what’s in it”. Pig in a poke, what a sick joke.

“This bill was written in a tortured way to make sure CBO did not score the mandate as taxes. If CBO scored the mandate as taxes, the bill dies. Okay, so it’s written to do that.  In terms of risk-rated subsidies, if you had a law which said that healthy people are going to pay in – you made explicit healthy people pay in and sick people get money, it would not have passed… Lack of transparency is a huge political advantage. And basically, call it the stupidity of the American voter or whatever, but basically that was really, really critical for the thing to pass… ”

And the fools voted this goon squad in for a second term. Maybe Gruber was right after all. Video at the link.

Conservative pundit David Limbaugh puts it all together, but stops just short of calling for impeachment:

You can see the mindset that these people have. There is no mistaking it. They know better than we “stupid” American people what is good for us, so they’ll do whatever is necessary, including purposely deceiving us, to advance their political agenda.

This is the stuff of outright tyrants — arrogant, unaccountable, cavalier despots. This is political fascism. This is not representative government. This type of behavior nullifies the Constitution and disenfranchises the American people.

It’s one thing to have strong ideological views. It’s altogether another to impose those views at any cost and in derogation of the people’s rights. This is who this president is. These are the people he surrounds himself with.

Obama and his team are not chastened, much less repentant, over the recent election results. They remain undeterred, and they intend to continue using whatever means they deem necessary, in their self-assessed superior wisdom, to accomplish their political ends, beginning with immigration.

your daily ebola

Canada And North Korea Join The No-Go List

TORONTO—Canada is following in Australia’s footsteps and has closed its doors, effectively immediately, to people from the West African countries battling Ebola.

In a move that puts Canada at odds with the World Health Organization, the federal government said Friday it is suspending the issuance of visas for residents and nationals of countries with “widespread and persistent-intense transmission” of Ebola virus disease. As well, work on permanent residence applications for people from the affected countries is also being suspended.

The stress on countries with widespread transmission provides an out for the United States, which currently still has at least one active Ebola case within its borders. At present only three countries meet the definition of widespread and persistent Ebola transmission: Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia.

I respect Canada’s right to decide what “widespread” means to them. Should we have 5 active cases here, I hope they close the door to us in an instant.

PYONGYANG, North Korea – North Korean officials have announced they will quarantine foreigners for 21 days over fears of the spread of the Ebola virus.

An announcement distributed to foreign diplomatic missions in Pyongyang said that, regardless of country or region of origin, all foreigners will be quarantined under medical observation for 21 days.

It said foreigners from affected areas will be quarantined at one set of locations, while those from unaffected areas will be sent to other locations, including hotels. It said the staff of diplomatic missions and international organizations in North Korea will be allowed to stay in their residences.

A copy of the document, dated Wednesday, was obtained by The Associated Press on Thursday.

There have been no reported cases of Ebola in North Korea.

That’s not how you do it Kim. This is not an excuse to throw all the foreigners in jail, just for good measure.

North Korea’s frantic response to Ebola, including a broad but so far poorly defined ban on foreign tourism, is also surprising because the notoriously reclusive country admits so few foreigners in the first place.
North Korea’s reaction isn’t unprecedented. It closed its borders for several months in 2003 during the scare over SARS.

But that was a much more obvious threat. SARS affected China, and Beijing is where most flights into Pyongyang originate. In the case of Ebola, North Korea’s efforts to defend itself from what appears to be a tiny risk may end up alienating it from foreigners who have been willing to invest here.

Yeah, but this lets mini-Kim put every foreigner in jail. Everybody. Even his ChiCom bosses. OOoooh, the power, the power!!

Your Daily Ebola

Getting sick about hearing about getting sick? I know I am. But ...

Australia bans travel from Ebola-hit countries

Australia became the first developed country on Tuesday to shut its borders to citizens of the countries worst-hit by the West African Ebola outbreak, a move those states said stigmatized healthy people and would make it harder to fight the disease.

Australia’s ban on visas for citizens of Sierra Leone, Liberia and Guinea followed decisions by the U.S. military to quarantine soldiers returning from an Ebola response mission and some U.S. states to isolate aid workers. The United Nations said such measures could discourage vital relief work, making it harder to stop the spread of the deadly virus.

“Anything that will dissuade foreign trained personnel from coming here to West Africa and joining us on the frontline to fight the fight would be very, very unfortunate,” Anthony Banbury, head of the U.N. Ebola Emergency Response Mission (UNMEER), told Reuters in the Ghanaian capital Accra.

Liberia’s President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf urged Australia to reconsider its travel ban.

“Anytime there’s stigmatization, there’s quarantine, there’s exclusion of people, many of whom are just normal, then those of us who are fighting this epidemic, when we face that, we get very sad,” she told a news conference.

I’ll take your being sad over our being dead, any day of the week.

And this is why the Ellis Island thing worked so well; thousands were quarantined there, and when their time was up they came through the gates with everyone else. Nobody knew, nobody cared. No Stigma.

I still think we should just borrow an island in the Bahamas or the Lesser Antilles, send them all down there for an all expense paid vacation, and then let the survivors back in. Sure, it’s quarantine, but with rum punch, surfing, fishing, conch chowder, and great tan lines. Shut up, you couldn’t afford this otherwise!

Two Days Of Brave

Under intense pressure from pResident Obola, NY and NJ’s governor’s Cuomo and Chirstie have caved, backing off from their bold and intelligent decision to automatically quarantine every last medical relief person coming to these states from the Ebola stricken nations of West Africa. After all, there are only 30 million of us in these two states, so what collective rights do we have, compared to some crybaby nurse having a tantrum.

So now the Ebola Worker Quarantine is going to be voluntary, which means it won’t exist, which means we’re right back to a selfish Dr. Spencer situation. And the next time one of these people becomes virulent, let’s just set them on fire and burn them to death on the spot. What the fudge, that’s just as insane a reaction one way as letting them walk about in public like human Petri dishes without lids before showing symptoms is in the other direction. Crazy vs Crazy. But now we know: their minor inconvenience is not only more worthwhile than the risk of infecting legions of us, it’s worth far more than allaying the somewhat justifiable fears of tens of millions.

But 2 days of common sense, that’s all we can get from the leaders of two of the more powerful states in the nation. Then they back down. Pretty damn sad.

Under Pressure, Cuomo Says Ebola Quarantines Will Allow Home Isolation

Facing fierce resistance from the White House and medical experts to a strict new mandatory quarantine policy for all medical workers who had contact with Ebola patients in West Africa, Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo said Sunday night that people quarantined in New York who do not show symptoms of the disease would be allowed to remain at home and would receive compensation for lost income.

Mr. Cuomo’s decision came after a weekend in which administration officials urged him and Gov. Chris Christie of New Jersey to reconsider the mandatory quarantine they announced on Friday. Aides to President Obama also asked other governors and mayors to follow a policy based on science, seeking to stem a steady movement toward more stringent measures in recent days at the state level.

The announcement by Mr. Cuomo seemed intended to draw a sharp contrast — both in tone and in fact — to the policy’s implementation in New Jersey, where a nurse who arrived Friday from Sierra Leone was swiftly quarantined in a tent set up inside a Newark hospital, with a portable toilet but with no shower.

It was the second striking shift in Mr. Cuomo’s public posture on the Ebola crisis in 72 hours; after urging calm Thursday night, then joining Mr. Christie to highlight the risks of lax policy on Friday, Mr. Cuomo on Sunday night appeared to try to stake out a middle ground.

So what are they saying? Is it now mandatory quarantine in NJ, but only pretend quarantine at home in NY? Sorry, I must be tired, but this is not really clear. I hope Christie is standing firm.

But other states are joining in, doing the Right Thing that Opussybaby is afraid to do.

But Mr. Cuomo and Mr. Christie were not out on their own for long. Late Friday, Gov. Pat Quinn of Illinois, a Democrat, issued a mandatory quarantine order for “high-risk” individuals who have come in contact with patients in West Africa. On Saturday, Gov. Rick Scott of Florida, a Republican, signed a similar order.

On Sunday morning, Mr. Christie predicted on Fox News that federal officials would adopt the same standards “sooner rather than later.”

The Obama administration suggested otherwise. Officials said the quarantine rules could create “a system of perverse incentives,” encouraging health care workers to fly into a different airport, like Atlanta or Washington Dulles, that is not located in states that have adopted new policies.

Hey, maybe it will create a “perverse incentive” that will keep these naive do-gooders from going over there in the first place. It’s not like there is much that they can do that the victim’s family, friends, and countrymen can’t do already. So why even allow Americans to go? That works for me; far less risk for the rest of us, and it makes it that much easier to shut the borders to those befouled nations.

Meanwhile ...

Lawyers for a nurse quarantined in a New Jersey hospital say they’ll sue to have her released and file a constitutional challenge to state restrictions for health care workers returning to New York and New Jersey after treating Ebola patients in West Africa. Civil liberties attorney Norman Siegel said Kaci Hickox, who was quarantined after arriving Friday at the Newark airport, shows no symptoms and should be released immediately. He and attorney Steven Hyman said the state attorney general’s office had cooperated in getting them access to Hickox.

If the governors declare a state of State Emergency, then nursey here might be up the creek. Extraordinary times get extraordinary measures, and a declaration may not even be necessary. So bring it. Besides, it’s not like she’s suddenly gone missing and there’s a new set of goalposts up in Giant’s Stadium. This is NJ after all.

and now another one

NEWARK, N.J. (CBSNewYork) — A health care worker who was quarantined at Newark Liberty International Airport after returning from treating Ebola patients in West Africa developed a fever and was being evaluated Friday night.

The woman was the first person quarantined under a new screening system announced earlier Friday by New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie.

The woman landed at Newark after treating Ebola patients in Sierra Leone, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie said at the news conference. A legal quarantine was issued for the woman, who was not a New Jersey resident and was set to go on to New York afterward.

“This woman, while her home residence is outside the area, said her next stop was going to be here in New York,” Christie said. “Governor Cuomo and I discussed it before we came out here, and a quarantine order will be issued.”

Look, I’m really glad that this woman was caught. And now she’s sick, and hopefully will get our best treatment from the very outset.

One more aide worker, coming down with the very disease they went to the other side of the world to fight, and did so while fully gowned, gloved, and masked. And it made no difference at all.

And know we have someone with active Ebola in New Jersey. Great.

Still, it would be better if not a single one of these cases made it inside our borders. Or even made it inside our airplanes outside our borders. Close the airports in West Africa. No planes leave, and any food, fuel, and medicine is by air drop.

It’s great that - SO FAR - all the people with this disease have been located in time. But we are taking a huge and unnecessary risk.

Ebola: I’ll Take Manhattan

EBOLA DOCTOR Comes To NYC From Africa, Parties On, Has Ebola Next Morning


Dr. Spencer did everything right, still got Ebola

Mayor Bill de Blasio said that a doctor admitted to Bellevue Hospital Center on Thursday has tested positive for the Ebola virus, adding “there’s no reason for New Yorkers to be alarmed.”

A doctor in New York City who recently returned from treating Ebola patients in Guinea became the first person in the city to test positive for the virus Thursday, setting off a search for anyone who might have come into contact with him.

The doctor, Craig Spencer, was rushed to Bellevue Hospital Center and placed in isolation at the same time as investigators sought to retrace every step he had taken over the past several days.

At least three people he had contact with in recent days have been placed in isolation. The federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which dispatched a team to New York, is conducting its own test to confirm the positive test on Thursday, which was performed by a city lab.

While officials have said they expected isolated cases of the disease to arrive in New York eventually, and had been preparing for this moment for months, the first case highlighted the challenges involved in containing the virus, especially in a crowded metropolis. Dr. Spencer, 33, had traveled on the A and L

subway lines Wednesday night, visited a bowling alley in Williamsburg, and then took a taxi back to Manhattan.

The next morning, he reported having a temperature of 103 degrees, raising questions about his health while he was out in public. The authorities have interviewed Dr. Spencer several times and are also looking at information from his credit cards and MetroCard to determine his movements.

Is everyone out of their cotton pickin’ minds? Hello morons? Knock knock, is anything going on in that empty thing under your hair? Hellooo???

ABSOLUTELY EVERYONE who has been working with Ebola patients ANYWHERE, especially in WEST FRIGGIN AFRICA, gets the 21 day quarantine. At least.

This guy followed the rules to the letter, and still got sick, and still put others at risk. Obviously, the rules are crap. 

Dr. Spencer’s work in Africa and the timing of the onset of his symptoms led health officials to dispatch disease detectives, who “immediately began to actively trace all of the patient’s contacts to identify anyone who may be at potential risk,” according to a statement released by the health department.

Dr. Spencer’s fiancée has also been quarantined at Bellevue. Two other friends, who had contact with him on Tuesday and Wednesday, have been told by the authorities that they too will be quarantined but whether they will isolate themselves in their homes or be relocated was still under discussion, according to a person briefed on the investigation. None of the three were showing signs of illness.

Nope. I do not give a damn. Either we lock the door completely and let no one in at all from Africa, or who has been in Africa in the past month, or we automatically quarantine everyone from the active nations. This is the minimum step. It’s beyond obvious that we automatically quarantine everyone who has been over there as part of any kind of Ebola relief effort. Thankfully, we don’t yet have so many people coming here from that part of Africa that we couldn’t warehouse them all for 3 weeks or longer.

No way in Hell that this guy’s feet should have touched American soil. Whether he was showing symptoms or not. No way. And no exceptions. And his buddies, and that taxi driver? Round them up. Into the bunny suit, off to Camp Q for a 3 week visit. Nothing voluntary about it. It’s just not worth taking a chance.

Spencer, a 33-year-old emergency room doctor, was working with Doctors Without Borders and returned from Guinea more than a week ago. Officials were contacted after he reported a fever and gastrointestinal symptoms, according to a statement from the commissioner of the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene.

NY Governor Cuomo said that New York City was “as ready as one can be for this circumstance.” He said the city is much more prepared than a Dallas hospital was when the first patient diagnosed with Ebola in the U.S. was admitted there last month.


City officials say Spencer acknowledged riding multiple subway lines and taking a cab to a Brooklyn bowling alley called “The Gutter” in the past week before he started showing symptoms. He also visited the High Line park and went on a three-mile jog.

The city’s health commissioner, Mary Bassett, said Spencer’s fiancé and two friends had been quarantined. The city has also been in contact with an Uber driver who drove Spencer, but said the two did not have direct contact.

According to a rough timeline provided by city officials, the doctor’s symptoms developed Wednesday, prompting him to isolate himself in his apartment.

When he felt worse Thursday, he and his fiancé made a joint call to authorities to detail his symptoms and his travels. EMTs in full Ebola gear arrived and took him to Bellevue in an ambulance surrounded by police squad cars.

Ok, so I’m probably a bit over the top, in panic mode. It does sound like he sort of did the right thing. But if he’d come off the plane and into mandated isolation then there would be no threat at all to the rest of us. There is no reason for the public to have to go through this.

Oh, and speaking of worthless, Dr. Spencer passed the new CDC airport screening protocols given to all people coming here from West Africa. Guess they aren’t worth a hill of beans. But we pretty much knew that anyway.

More reading if you feel like it at this link.

Doctors Without Borders, an international humanitarian organization, said per the guidelines it provides its staff members on their return from Ebola assignments, “the individual engaged in regular health monitoring and reported this development immediately.” As of Oct. 14, the organization said 16 staff members have been infected and nine have died.
Four American aid workers, including three doctors, were infected with Ebola while working in Africa and were transferred to the U.S. for treatment in recent months. All recovered.

Health care workers are vulnerable because of close contact with patients when they are their sickest and most contagious. In West Africa this year, more than 440 health workers have contracted Ebola and about half have died.

Par For The Course

Obola Golfs Half The Day Then Attends Ebola Meeting

New Ebola Czar Skips The Meeting, 2nd Miss In 2 Days

President Barack Obama’s new Ebola “czar” Ron Klain has skipped another White House meeting on the Ebola crisis, a readout of who attended a Saturday meeting with Obama shows.

Obama held the Ebola meeting after spending four hours and 40 minutes on the golf course at Fort Belvoir, according to the White House press pool report from the New York Daily News’ Dan Friedman.


Klain, who was appointed Ebola Czar on Friday by Obama, is not on this list. It’s the second meeting in as many days on Ebola that Klain hasn’t attended after being appointed into the position on Friday.

2011 Army Medical Manual: Aerosol Ebola



page 117

Lassa, CCHF, Ebola, and Marburg viruses may be particularly prone to nosocomial spread due to periods of high viremia corresponding with bleeding propensity. In several instances, secondary infections among contacts and medical personnel without direct body fluid exposure have been documented. These instances have prompted concern of a rare phenomenon of aerosol transmission of infection. Therefore, when VHF is suspected, additional infection control measures are indicated. The patient should be hospitalized in a private room with an adjoining anteroom to be used for donning and removing protective barriers, storage of supplies, and decontamination of laboratory specimen containers. A negative-pressure isolation room with 6–12 air exchanges per h is ideal for all VHF patients and is strongly advised for patients with significant cough, hemorrhage, or diarrhea. All persons entering the room should wear double gloves, impermeable gowns with leg and shoe coverings (contact isolation), eye protection and HEPA (N-95) masks or positive-pressure air-purifying respirators (PAPRs). Note that though, that aerosol transmission person-to-person, if it occurs, is a rare occurrence.

Ebola Day

I could not turn on the TV or the radio today without hearing about Ebola, non-stop. Ebola ebola ebola ebola ebola. Hey, how about that Ebola! Did you here George Clooney married Ebola last week? Ya think Ebola will make the playoffs? Hey, check out the opening weekend grosses from Ebola, the Epidemic Movie!

Don’t worry folks, no need to panic. Except that pResident Useless actually didn’t play golf today, didn’t go to a fundraiser, and actually did attend a cabinet meeting and then give a little speech on live TV this afternoon. “Nothing to panic about” he says, yet his change in behavior is so radical from his usual narcissistic detachment that it is almost panic inducing. Obama is working? Holy Cats, it’s the end of the world!!!!

Naturally, he still isn’t closing the borders, he still isn’t stopping flights from West Africa or banning their entry here, and he’s still sending the 101st Airborne over there to ... do nothing, and then get sick and die I guess. And hey, let’s “redefine” the word outbreak to make it sound less scary.

And as the airline stocks take a huge nosedive on Wall Street today, it looks like I’m not the only one who’s figured out that I have no way in Hell of knowing whose sweaty infectious West African ass was in the seat before me. And the news is ... that IDIOT nurse finishes mopping up the Ebola puke, and gets on an airplane with a fever - but not one at or above the official NO NO NO limit! - but a fever still, and with the knowledge of her co-workers, plus permission from the CDC!! ... and that airplane made FIVE flights with 130+ passengers before anyone linked it back to her and they off-lined the thing for a fast shot of Lysol. Riiiight, I’m going to on an airplane just as soon as I can. NFWIH.

turn it off after her opening; this is the tape of her whole show.

“I think the error was the removal of the suit,” Nurse in Spain infected … UPDATE


What should have been a simple update to the article Drew posted, has now grown into a somewhat bigger story.
Hard to keep track cos first one story is reported and then another version of the same.
Sometimes the age of the person isn’t even clear. Not that it matters but is the lady 40 or 44?  And if that can’t be kept straight, what about the really serious stuff? The one thing we do know for certain is that, like almost everything that comes out of Afrika,
this Ebola thing is creepy, unwanted and deadly.

The Spanish nurse who became the first person to contract the deadly Ebola virus outside of West Africa said she discovered her diagnosis by reading the news on her mobile phone while in hospital.

Theresa Romero Ramos, the 40-year-old nurse, told Spanish TV station Cuatro that she read on Spanish news site El Pais that she had had two positive tests for Ebola, but that doctors had not told her she was infected.

She said: “I found out on my mobile phone.

“I felt something was up because to begin with the doctors and nurses in Alcorcon were coming in and out every hour and then they start to come in less often.
“I asked my doctor for my result and they weren’t very clear with me, and then I really suspected it,” she told the broadcaster.
“I go my mobile and I read on El Pais that they’d said I had two positive tests for Ebola. But no one had told me.”

Mrs Romero Ramos had previously insisted that she “hasn’t the slightest idea” how she contracted the virus, and that she followed all safety protocols while in contact with the missionary and his belongings.


“I think the mistake came when I took off the protective suit. I see it as the most critical moment, the one in which it, (the infection) could have happened. But I don’t know for sure.”

She touched her face after her first visit to the missionary’s room while still wearing her gloves, when she was in the process of removing her protective suit.

“I think the error was the removal of the suit,” she told the paper by telephone. “I can see the moment it may have happened, but I’m not sure about it,” referring to when she touched her face.


Ebola dog dead: Spanish social media users grieve as Teresa Romero’s pet is put down

Spain’s decision to euthanise the dog of a nurse who contracted Ebola has sparked a global outcry and clashes between police and animal rights activists after 390,000 people signed a petition urging to Government to save its life.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
It's been a long strange trip without you Skipper, but thanks for pointing us in the right direction and giving us a swift kick in the behind to get us going. Keep lookin' down on us, will ya? Thanks.
