Placated with persuasive words, relatives often slink away, suitably… Continue reading When Science and Anecdote Collide
I have always said that I never get angry, but I think I may have to revise that statement. You'd think by the following conversation, that I had lost my purse or something equally trivial, but hey, what's a son to Lundbeck pharmaceuticals? Sept 20 2013 Causality Assessment. RE; My son's death (Shane Clancy) To… Continue reading Ah Yes; The Lundbeck Salute.
Well, I did it. I survived the conference with Maria, I didn't run out the side door and she didn't have to slap me; well not too hard anyway.

Incidentally, while looking for a picture of Coroner Craze I realized that he was… Continue reading Brian’s Beachy Head Stories

Cynical: Believing that people are motivated by self-interest; distrustful of human sincerity or integrity. Me a cynic? Absolutely! Isn't it strange how 'professionals' are nice as long as you go with the flow and until you step away from the 'norm'?
