Patients need patience as the vaccine rollout rolls out rather clunkily. But you know the old saying: a watched syringe never injects, so here are 16 pages of salubrious reading to keep you occupied while you wait and help the time fly by.
This vaccine is going to work. Eventually. So let's be patient as the vaccinators get their global act together. In the meantime, it's never too late to celebrate the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King. His wise words, some of which are reproduced on pages 2 and 3, have never been more relevant or mor...
This morning I drove past a medical office that was offering COVID vaccines. There were maybe 30 people in line on the sidewalk, each person standing right next to the next person. Some were not wearing masks. Oh......kay.....
Our pledge to you, our readers: If the Medical Examiner ever stops publication (for the record, nothing of the sort is planned), you won't still be seeing our newsstands all over town two or three years later. Promise.
This is probably our finest issue of 2021. No, I think it definitely is. 100%.
SPEED KILLS! Except when it doesn't, and in the case of the COVID vaccine, speed was just what the doctor ordered. Literally. Except it wasn't THAT fast: this type of vaccine has been in development, at least in concept, since the late 1980s. It isn't the "rush to market" that many would have you be...
GOOD QUESTION: Where do new diseases come from?
By the year magical year 2000, said the predictions of the Fifties, diseases were supposed to be vanquished and reaching age 100 would be routine. What happened? Even after a 16-year grace period it sometimes seems like it's one step forward, one step back. We explain why new diseases are popping up...
BREAKING NEWS: WHO and the CDC have announced that effective immediately, the 5-Second Rule has been reduced to 3 seconds.

Our cover story is only 35 words long, but it could change your life in the coming year(s). Read it (if you have time - like say, 10 seconds or so). Inside, we offer the scoop on everything from Emperor Justinian and his relevance in 2020 to how to build superb cinnamon rolls. Along the way, read ab...
I'm not a huge fan of evolutionary theory, but I'll admit this does make me stop and ponder for a moment.
It's official! This is our finest, best and most salubrious December 2020 issue >ever
Remember the old Groucho Marx TV show "You Bet Your Life?" No? Well, look around. A lot of people are playing the home game these days. Not a good idea! Just as a friendly reminder, you bet your life is not something to be taken literally; it's just a figure of speech. Speaking of which, check out t...
Just so no one can ever say we don't present opposing viewpoints:
Even the turkeys are wearing masks.
LISTEN TO THIS NOW. THANK ME LATER.
Wish I had a dollar for every one of these I've seen.
The 11-year-old Black girl who in 2017 was subjected to — and spoke out against — harsh police treatment in Grand Rapids, Mich., had just celebrated her 14th birthday this month when she got sick.
Looking forward to getting the Pfizer vaccine: 95% effective! No way I would take Moderna's at only 94.5%. No way. Uh uh. Nope.
Let's hope so! We definitely need to. But let's do it here: www.AugustaRX.com

But there are ways to restore health and happiness and overall salubriousness even when the world around us is in disarray. That's what much of this (and every) issue is about, cover to cover, s...
This projection was made in mid-summer.
If 95% of people in the U.S. wore masks, the model predicts that approximately 40,000 lives would be saved.
This is an interesting visualization of a number of COVID trends.

Are you a QUOTATION PUZZLE fan? If so, you probably saw the glitch in the grid in the Oct. 16 issue. That has been repaired, so at least the online version is correct now. You can print it out and solve it. #wordpuzzle #famousquotes
This is why we can't have nice things.
Sunny & clear at your house? You'd still better read our page 1 forecast. It could save your life.
