Salute to Joseph McCarthy Show

Jul 26, 2016

We will not walk in fear, one of another. We will not be driven by fear into an age of unreason, if we dig deep in our history and our doctrine, and remember that we are not descended from fearful men. -Edward R Murrow

Sometimes we get distracted. Working in rural Eastern Kentucky, we have friends who are Muslim healthcare professionals. Recent attacks against this religion and against racial and ethnic minorities remind us of a time when another religious group in the US was under fire for supporting enemies of the US. The show begins with an overly long reminder of the damage Sen. McCarthy did to our country, with the pleas of our leaders from that era not to repeat his mistakes. Yet here we are. We are also a health-related radio show, so we talk about fecal tourism, and the recent improvement in emergency room outcomes and declines in major diseases.

Tip: according to Robin Wilson, author of “Clean Design: Wellness for Your Lifestyle”, there is no such thing as a hypoallergenic dog. “Never allow them on the bed”, says Wilson.
