  Some years back there was a vampire movie called interview with a vampire.  Brad Pitt was the vampire. He was very well received among the living females in the movie but sucked the life out of them. I recently had to revisit this sense of being exhausted by a discussion after an hour talk with an unrepentant anti-vaxxer person …

Regulators recently posted warnings to the national community that many med spas were potentially dangerous to their customers.  What is wrong with med spas?

CSI Type Stuff

I recently received an inquiry from a caller from the internet who was hoping to force the City to clean up the Kensington neighborhood.
