Failing the Test

Late last year, my son had a COVID exposure, so he got a rapid test at the Center for COVID Control in Darboy. He said he was in and out in a jiffy and thankfully his test came back negative. So, he had a very positive experience there. But not everyone did. Last month, the […]

Fake Card, Real Trouble

While it’s only been a few weeks, I’m still bummed about the Packers’ loss to the 49ers. We had the #1 seed and home field advantage throughout the playoffs, plus, Tom Brady and the Buccaneers lost, which theoretically would have made our path even easier. The only thing that could have made the game worse […]

Willing to Give it a Shot

Earlier this fall, I watched ‘The Dirt,’ the biopic about Mötley Crüe that explored the debauchery of the ‘80s metal band’s hard-partying lifestyle, which was filled with booze, drugs and women. Oh, and rock’n’roll. One of the movie’s more shocking scenes recounts the time that bassist, Nikki Sixx, overdosed on heroin. A friend called 911, […]

Ja-cruisey

When I was a kid, my sister and I watched a lot of MTV. One of my most memorable videos from the ‘80s was Phil Collins’ “Take Me Home.” It was a tune about wanting to go home and it featured Phil singing in front of landmarks around the world, such as London Bridge, Radio […]

When Patients Need a Lift

It’s a sad fact that sometimes basic transportation needs get in patients’ way of accessing health care, and no health care provider wants to see their patients go without care just because they can’t get rides to the clinic. While it may seem like paying for a patient’s Uber ride, cab fare, or bus ticket […]

Not to Scale

A few weeks ago, I wrote about a lawsuit against Subway that accused the sandwich chain of not having actual tuna in its tuna sandwiches. Apparently, they’re not alone. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration is an agency under the U.S. Department of Commerce. NOAA oversees the Seafood Import Monitoring Program, or SIMP, which is […]

Getting our Ducks in a Row

As an estate planning attorney, my job is to help clients get their legal affairs in order. Much of this process is devoted to ensuring clients’ assets get to where they want them to go when they pass. Another big part of it, though, is talking about clients’ wishes while they are still living. In […]

Not Just a Cosmetic Law

The other night I was watching reruns of ‘The Simpsons.’ In one, Homer invented the makeup gun. When unveiling it, he asked Marge, “How many times have you gals been late for a high-powered business meeting… only to realize you’re not wearing makeup?” “That’s every woman’s nightmare,” she replied. “That’s why I invented this revolutionary […]

I’m Not That Hungry

My son, and many of his buddies, were born in 2004. When the pandemic hit last spring, these guys all retreated to their dark, dank basements where they attended school online. As soon as classes were over, they played video games and chatted with one another over the internet. Months passed, and the boys continued […]
