Becoming Superman

I was a young impressionable six-year-old the night we went to the movie theatre to watch Superman, the one starring Christopher Reeves. I was in awe. He was so real to me, there on the big screen. I knew right then that I wanted to be Superman.

I wanted to be called Clark Kent at school, so my mom sent a note to the principal, who gave it to all the teachers. My teacher kept calling me by my old name, which made me mad.

My first cape was a red towel safety-pinned to a blue shirt. I spent hours running around the house, jumping off chairs, practicing my flying skills from the back of the couch. When my parents called me by my given name I’d tell them “no, I’m Superman”, and they’d tell me, “yes, son, you can be anything you want to be.”

Better that a Millstone

It took a few years, but I finally watched the movie “The Kite Runner”. It now makes the cut as one of my favorite movie dramas. I highly recommend it.

The story, historical fiction, was thought-provoking, compelling and inspiring. It was also very disturbing, because it dealt with the repulsive, revolting reality of the rape of children by depraved sub-human scum.

Kyrie’s Uneven Playing Field

For months of this NBA season Kyrie Irving missed all home games and some away games due to his principled and impressive stand against being forced to be injected with an experimental and, for most people, completely unnecessary innoculation.

Kryie’s stand won a tremendous amount of respect from me and from many others.

But On March 24th, that changed.

England ends several COVID mandates, restrictions and passports


Restrictions including COVID-19 passes, mask mandates, and work-from-home guidance will be removed in England, UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced on Wednesday…..

“As COVID becomes endemic, we will need to replace legal requirements with advice and guidance, urging people with the virus to be careful and considerate of others,” the prime minister said….

But he refused to reconsider the vaccination mandate for frontline health care workers, insisting “the evidence is clear that health care professionals should get vaccinated.”

… Johnson told MPs that the Cabinet decided to remove its so-called “Plan B” measures on Wednesday morning as data suggest the Omicron wave has peaked nationally, and he attributed stabilising hospital admission numbers to “the extraordinary booster campaign” and the public’s compliance to the restriction measures.

Our Commentary:

This is very good news, and a great step in the right direction. However, the refusal to remove vaccination mandates for health care workers is extremely unfortunate, as no vaccination mandate is ever justified. Healthcare workers are smart enough and experienced enough to make their own choices about their own medical care, and the majority of the unvaccinated have doubtless already had COVID, and therefore have superior natural immunity. Never mind the fact that the vaccinated are now more likely to get and transmit COVID than the unvaccinated.

International scientists make case against vaccinating children

Why are we vaccinating children against COVID-19” is a great question, one posed by many, including by a group of international scientists who published the evidence against vaccinating children in the scientific journal Toxicology Reports.

In-patient vitamin D supplementation reduces COVID-19 severity and mortality

A prospective study designed to evaluate if vitamin D supplementation for COVID-19 patients would reduce the length of hospital stay and mortality found a 200% lower of risk of hospitalization beyond 8 days, and a 200+% reduction in mortality.
