In yet another dramatic revelation flowing out of whistleblower Edward Snowden, a journalism textbook from 1983 has been sent to several large media outlets, including the Washington Post, New York Times and the trailer park where Fox News is thought to originate.
Rather than disparaging buprenorphine and those who prescribe and use it, we should be embracing this medication and ensuring access to and appropriate use of it.
This Common Core rollout displays a degree of ignorance and indifference to reality that increasingly defines our ruling elite. So don't be surprised if a populist wave crashes down on them by a citizenry that doesn't want public education in America bent to their whimsy.
I am ashamed by my lack of interest in expanding my knowledge of what happened during those years, but I am hugely grateful that there are people who make it their life's work to continue to remember and remind us. It may just be "stuff," but it's the stuff of our lives.

Yet the takeaway here merely reinforces a truth that has long been evident to those paying attention to the pungent interplay of money and power in China: Despite the prattling of global business leaders that their presence in China is a wholesome boon to justice and right, they have frequently enriched themselves by engaging in the very dirty doings they claim to disdain.
Invest in yourself and your health. If you want to use natural medicines, see a licensed health care provider who has done his or her homework. It's worth your time and money to make sure your health is cared for by a professional who is familiar with natural medicines and their effects.
