I recently experienced a staphylococci infection that was successfully treated with an antibiotic.

Now, I am concerned about a SuperPAClococci infection that has entered the blood stream of our body politic. What is the appropriate antibiotic to treat this dangerous infection?

When billionaires and corporations are allowed to infect our democracy with their avalanche of advertising, thanks to the Supreme Court’s “Citizens United” decision, the health of our nation is in peril.

Personally, I am planning to use the TV mute button extensively from now to November, and hold to voting for those who represent my values in society, i.e., care for the environment; health and economic equality as a goal for all, despite differences of gender, sexual orientation, or race; and a desire to have a government that provides a “safety net” for those least able to care for themselves.
