They must suck your blood

Timed perfectly to coincide with the Twilight: New Moon vampire-romance film fervour sinking its teeth deep into the world's neck, Canada's National Advisory Committee on Immunizations has updated its recommendations for rabies shots after bat run-ins.

Now, sleeping in the same room as a bat but not having any apparent bite marks is no longer reason enough to suspect rabies.

    As Ramsey would say "bloody hell"........

    Is this a serendipitous analogy?

    At a time when health care provision is playing the anti-heroic role of 'hide and seek' while still managing to drain enough $ support to flourish...........

    .....we have a series of "chick' stories profiling the desperate cry of the female human species to have " friendship, commitment, and passion" ( Fredenberg) in order to feel loved.

    With this combo the male predator becomes the protector.

    Imagine the intense "devotion" craved by the individual who wrote these series ( a Mormon devotee).

    Consider these linked realities:

    Healthy protection comes from "commitment" to the right thing.

    Neurotic protection comes from "devotion" to the wrong thing.

    Dedication belongs to the temporal.

    Devotion belongs to the eternal.

    [To use/seek either wrongly is a perversion]

    What do you do when all the "good goals" are not protecting the right thing... in the right way?

    ?Perhaps medicine's past years of giving and receiving "devotion" was too linear a flow.
    As medicine seeks to define and perform more ?realistically at merely at the level of contractual "commitment" ...why be surprised the followers will no longer follow blindly?

    I don't know about you but 'whatsoever things are lovely, pure, and of good report' is where my thought life is going to anchor.

    Did you know that garlic thins your blood?
