Could Medicare be Obamacare's Savior?

Like it or not, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is the law of the land. Whether or not it will prove to protect patients and facilitate affordable medical care is another story.

Can The Experts Rescue Halloween?

According to the National Retail Foundation, Americans will spend $6.9 billion on Halloween this year. To the untrained observer, that sounds as if the autumn celebration will be around forever; but I am concerned for the long-term health of the holiday.

Red Meat vs Creme Brulee

If the disappointment of everyone expecting fireworks at the first Democratic debate exhibited itself as perspiration, we could declare the California drought over. A few soggy matches might have been lit but that was it. Heavy on the smoke, non-existent on the flame.

Defining Courage

Courage is a word that means different things to different people. It's like Rashomon, the story that changed every time it was retold through a different perspective.

Central Kansas Medical Center Candy Stripers: The way we were

The call came as I was walking out the front door of our house. "Are you finished with that hospital column?" It was my sister Kate, calling from Wichita. She had just reviewed my draft column. "Yeah, pretty much," I told her. "You can't run it yet. You need to make some changes. We weren't Candy Strippers. That's how it reads. We were Candy Stripers."

Hey Democrats, What About Congress?

Presidential candidates typically try to sell themselves as superheroes whose powers will magically cure our national ills.

Banana Republicans Take Charge

To paraphrase former Speaker Sam Rayburn, Republicans have proven they can knock down a barn. In the aftermath of John Boehner's resignation and Kevin McCarthy's withdrawal, now they have to find among their number a carpenter who can rebuild the House.

Don't Let Social Media Ruin Your Self-Esteem

Over the past few weeks, I've gotten to the point where I wanted to just leave Facebook behind. I have a fairly light social media footprint when it comes to Instagram, Twitter and Pinterest. But I do hang out in the Facebook precincts on a fairly regular basis, so fairly regular that my boss has occasionally asked me how I'm enjoying retirement.
