October is a month associated with Halloween, ie, ghosts, goblins and
other assorted things that go bump in the night. As you might expect,
this month has been a bit of a horror show for me, simply due to all the
As I said last time, the US doesn't simply fix a problem, they

they worry it will hurt. Heck, it already hurts, right? They put off
going to the doctor for fear of getting bad news, which simply makes any

Mark Khan, who should make a great Jewish grandmother someday as he
takes great delight in reminding me when I'm wrong (which could be a
