A Miss Diagnosis

You know how I can’t resist a “good” pun.

Invasive Procedures

This is going to be one of those blog posts that is either really interesting to you or the most banal experience of your life. So, take it or leave it, but here comes a classic Justin rant and not surprisingly, it covers healthcare and customer service.

I don’t really expect anyone to read this post, I just have to get all this off my chest. For those who aren’t going to read, bottom line, I had a doctor who ignored her patient’s medical history and symptoms, berated me and treated me with such passive aggressive nonsense that I felt it necessary to write a 2,700 word blog post about it.

In the end, I got the prescription I came for.

I Almost Got Arrested

Well… I did get pulled over tonight, from within a parking lot because I was taking pictures.

Apparently, it is against the law to take pictures of anything, but especially what I was taking pictures of, at night.

Total bullshit. Wanna know what got me pulled over and my plates/license ran through the system?

I took this picture.

Yup. A picture of a bank at night. I wasn’t even zooming in on anything. Just a picture.

They told me to not take anymore pics, it was a warning that you cannot take pictures of buildings, especially banks, at night. Only, that isn’t a law and I have every right to take these pictures.

He was nice enough but this whole, “photography is a crime” thing is really getting old.


You’ve Got to be Kidding

WASHINGTON (AP) — John McCain has called off a fundraiser at the home of a Texas oilman who joked about rape during a 1990 gubernatorial run in the state. The Texan, Republican Clayton Williams, made the joke during his failed campaign against Democrat Ann Richards. Williams compared rape to the weather, saying, “As long as it’s inevitable, you might as well lie back and enjoy it.”

He also compared Richards to the cattle on his ranch, saying he would “head her and hoof her and drag her through the dirt.” Williams’ comments made national news at the time and remain easy to find on the Internet.

Even so, McCain’s campaign said it hadn’t known about the remarks.
