It was time to go see Dr. Winton again. He took a look at me, ran some blood work and said he wanted me to get a PET Scan. One was scheduled about five days out while we were there in his office (since I have started down this journey, they have built the Winship Cancer Center on campus and all exams are there). Dr. Winton, obviously a doctor with some clout, started calling around and found he could get me in the Emory Midtown Hospital to a PET Scan machine that afternoon. So, Laura and I headed to midtown. I had the scan and they told me to not leave, wait for a few minutes.

  • Surviving cancer, Part 1
    Sunday, February 9, 2020 10:31 AM
    On Friday, Feb. 11, 2000, 20 years ago, I received a call about 4 p.m. from a person whose name I do not remember, on staff at Emory University Hospital here in Atlanta, Ga. He told me the results of the biopsy on the lump on my neck had come back and I had cancer, Diffuse Large B Cell Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.

  • The art of selling is a different world in government
    Sunday, February 2, 2020 9:13 AM
    What genuinely puzzles me is people are willing to give up the power of purchasing for some sort of perceived security blanket from government provided services. I don’t want to do that. I want to buy as many of the goods and services as I possibly can in a free choice environment.

  • Is anyone paying any attention to this?
    Thursday, January 23, 2020 9:43 AM
    In the old days, at least the muckrakers did not personally aspire to the highest office in the land. They may have done everything they could to elect their favorites, but they did not short-circuit the process as Bloomberg has.

  • A little marketing advice for the Democrats
    Wednesday, January 15, 2020 6:05 PM
    I understand Democrats want to win the presidential race in November, take control of the Senate and keep control of the House. However, I think you need a little help in the marketing department. The perceptions you currently generate are not helping you.

  • Seeking answers, reacting to symptoms
    Friday, January 10, 2020 12:36 PM
    I have come to the realization that most “solutions” provided by governments around the world – at any level – are flawed. Laws are often times a reaction to symptoms of deeper problems.

  • Snowflakes and ice cubes
    Thursday, January 2, 2020 6:37 PM
    Snowflakes, if you have decided to go to work for someone, embrace the chaos with which you are presented upon arrival. This just may be your golden opportunity to show the world that you can shine. If you want to be treated as something special, earn it. Even if your job is cleaning out the barn, figuratively or literally, be the best barn cleaner who ever lived.

    Communications is great, whether it is spreading the news for the sake of the news or items delivered to us commercially in the form of advertising. There is a lot to be gained knowing what is available to us.

  • Cellulose, Switzerland and West Virginia
    Thursday, December 12, 2019 11:51 AM
    Despite paper never being far from my thoughts, Laura and I are vacationing in Switzerland as I write this. We have not been here before. The terrain reminds me of Ohio’s neighbor, West Virginia.
