It is refreshing to hear the voices of RNs, the actual caregivers who work at the bedside and see first-hand the impact of the decisions of those working in the corner office. Health care services are shrinking, and privatizing, and becoming more expensive and exclusive, even in the face of Obamacare. Hopefully for the rest of us, Nurses like these will lead the way to a place where health care is a human right. Go Nurses!
Although I haven't been much of a "Trekkie", an Interred-Asian, or specifically gay man, I still find the career and life of George Takei fascinating.The author of this article paints a picture of an uncomplicated American original who has survived, and is now thriving in an ambiguous culture with an uncertain future. His bravery is demonstrated when virtual and actual worlds of real people meet. It is not surprising that he has gained an immense following in the realm of social media. A man of this caliber would be a natural for political office in any arena.His ending statement about humor being the connective glue that binds us, speaks of his humanity. Someone with this much insight and wisdom is desperately needed to lead us out of our virtual prison camps and into a closet that fits us all ...(Pun intended).
Thank you to the Bohemian for the continuing coverage on this story. I pray to God that Andy Lopez's family would get the attention their story deserves.The other local news media outlets coverage of this story are neither informative or noteworthy with only a few seconds of their airtime. Please continue to have coverage of any upcoming events in Andy's honor.
Thank you again.

It sounds as if the Bohemian is intentionally trying to evoke a certain response to Walmart or the change of the market to Walmart with the wording "Walmart sneaks into the former ...". How are they "sneaking"? This was announced a few weeks ago ... did the Bohemian "news crew" not hear of that? Is this really "news" to the Bohemian? And in the final result, will the community be better served by a lower priced grocery outlet in their midst than either a higher priced store as before OR by an empty building in a major space for the center? In free enterprise, the measure is whether or not the public patronizes the store ... no?? That remains to be seen. But I doubt the folks in the community are as surprised as the Bohemian seems to be. This is old news.
