Down With The Sickness

It’s been a while since I spoke out against Natural News. Mainly because it gets really tedious smacking around the kind of stupid that Natural News posts, but in light of a patient who “didn’t think tetanus was all that dangerous” I feel that Natural News needs a really good smack and lo and behold, …

Dear Melanie Phillips

Ah Melanie Phillips! The United Kingdom’s answer to the question “How can we beat the american right wing pundits at right wing dickery, racism and general ignorance”. In her latest offering she tries to take on atheism and secularism with a series of tried and tested strawmen. It’s a ludicrous post/speech. There is no british …

Rights of the Silent Majority – Sex Slavery and Prostitution

I agree with Taslima Nasrin. Sex slavery is something that has to be abolished. India is one of the places where sex slavery still occurs. Women are kidnapped from places like Nepal and Burma and traded as prostitutes. Their illegal status allows them to be kept under control. Many are lured into making such deals …

Bad Luck

I was supposed to write up a post on Vaccines and Autism and the resurgence of the Anti-Vax lobby but something came up. Yesterday I was struck by a car while on my way back from the hospital. I have multiple lacerations and contusions, a dislocated shoulder, a sprained wrist and soft tissue damage to …
