Re: An Open Letter

From what I understand, there are folks up north who don't even have AC. I'm not sure how they stand it year after year.

Re: An Open Letter

And while we're on the subject, I think it possible that my eye doctor, who is now head of ophthalmology at Case-Western Reserve, might know just a little bit more about glaucoma than you do.

Re: Fresh Veggies and Fruit

Pineapples are the same. If you had ever tasted a slice of ripe pineapple at the Dole Plantation in Hawaii, you would never buy a pineapple in a store on the mainland again.
