Yet another day of temps in the low 80s. Ugh. This is February 21? A hint of jasmine is in the air like it’s a spring morning and I know that’s slightly different from my family’s home in western Pennsylvania where they’ve been treated like they’re a wide receiver and the snow is Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman.

There are two articles I’ve recently written of note. One is about chef Conrad Gallagher. I was a guest at a kick-off event for his company, Vanity Catering and Events and he prepared a four-course lunch that included roasted duck. I liked it.

The other article was part of a lengthy interview with a neurosurgeon from Phoenix who has alternate solutions to Obamacare. Dr. Kris Smith brought up the fact that nothing in the Affordable Care Act addresses physician liability.

He authored a book titled It’s Not Brain Surgery.
