Dear Readers,

 

My heart is as broken as yours over the accident at Duke University Hospital. A beautiful young girl and her family were shattered by the news that the blood type that was in the heart and lungs transplanted into her was the wrong type. This meant, of course, that she would not live.

I think all of us in medicine shudder when we hear of things like this, and we think of the times in our own lives when the finger could have been pointed at us. For me, I was thinking of when we...

Karen Travis, owner of WGL Radio, 1250AM, called me Monday morning and asked if I would be interested in covering a story involving Dave Macy. Karen is one of our business neighbors here in Waynedale, operating her radio station just a few blocks east of The Waynedale News.

An acquaintance gave me a dog this week. Same old story, "We love her, but she barks all the time. She needs to be out of our home by Friday". This little dog had been with me for about a week in December because she was biting and bullying the other two older dogs in the family. She learned very quickly to go to her bed in the corner for time out when she got too rowdy and to stop biting when told "No!" She learned to sit (for about 5 seconds at a time). Obviously she needed more work on that...

Broadband is broader.

 

If you are the type of person who listens to your computer get online then you don't have broadband. Broadband is also referred to as DSL or Cable Modem. I'm not going to try and compare the two, but it seems pretty balanced as price and speed go.

Anyone who has broadband will testify that they will never go back to the old dial-up Internet. It is fast, it is easy, and it is in many cases worth the expense. And in the latest technology polls and Internet polls it...
