  2. Matt
    3 years ago my descending aorta burst and I was MedVacced by chopper
    100 miles away to Portland from Farmington Maine.
    I wound up going to Mass General where Dr Mark Conrad put
    a stent in the artery.
    A year later, suffering from Post Traumatic Stress caused by certain people
    posting on your blog I was readmitted to Mass General where I had the
    upper arch of my ascending Aorta replaced with a artificial one by
    Dr. Jassar.UGH!

    In other Newes!


    Ram Dass writes about how his attitude towards death has changed with his spiritual growth, and that he’s got it on good authority that dying is absolutely safe.

  10. Dear Matt:
    So sorry to hear of your illness. Please get well soonest. Looks like you’re toting an M-14 in your fightin’ Marine photo. Not a bad choice. The early M-16s jammed a lot … Thanks for your service in Vietnam, and your blog.

    1. Afterthought: Thanks also for putting away numerous evildoers during your career as a prosecutor.

    Time off. Get well brother !!! Too many depend on your posts!
