Nocturnal Rumination: Current Events

26 Feb

Both stories are from NPR:

C. Everett Koop died today at 96.  He is notable because he changed the manner in which the Surgeon General worked in the US.  His was a position of common sense, especially in the face of dangerous drug addiction issues in the 1980s, the advent and epidemic of AIDS and techniques to prevent its spread, and even abortion.  Though Conservative, Dr Koop set aside his personal beliefs for his scientific and medical opinions when approaching these topics.

In Britain, a 101-year old runner has retired.  Feel worse about missing that workout now.
