Sunday--April 30

Welcome to the last day of April. The year is one third over and we have survived the first 100 days of #45's reign. Only 1360 days left until he leaves office--unless he is reelected of course. Pray not!!

My first thoughts on this item was: when a country needs elaborate professions and demonstrations of "loyalty" it is already well on the skids downward. And, coming from a man who violates every principle he outlines in his proclamation, it is the height of hypocrisy. In case you are wondering, I will not be observing it. Instead I will wish you all a Merry Beltane.

On another cherry note, this article reaffirms a lot of what I have read over the years. For women, the only thing that may be more dangerous than no medical care may be medical care itself. From medical experts dismissing a woman's symptoms as inconsequential or imaginary (same symptoms in men are treated as serious health threats), to medical tests that don't work on women the way they work on men, to drugs that don't work as expected on women because they were tested on men, etc., etc., modern medicine often fails women, sometimes with lethal results.
