Deirdre's Book Pick Of The Week

 

  How To Prevent Autism by Dara Berger - The statistics are alarming and become more so every year. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that 1 in 68 children have been identified with an autism spectrum disorder, making it one of the fastest growing developmental disorders in the United States. 

Take Action to BAN Chlorpyrifos: The Senate has just introduced a bill (S.1624) that would BAN chlorpyrifos, a toxic pesticide that harms kids’ brains. This pesticide has been linked to serious health effects in young children when their mothers were exposed during pregnancy, including nervous system damage, autism, ADHD and lower IQs.  Take Action Now!

Weeding Out Vaccine Toxins: MMR, Glyphosate, and the Health of a Generation - Glyphosate, often sold under the brand name “Roundup,” is the most widely used weed killer in the U.S. Glyphosate is a “non-selective herbicide,” which means it kills many plants, not just weeds. It kills them by interfering with the production of critical proteins necessary for growth. 

Back to School, Away from Toxins - by Deirdre Imus, August 10, 2017 - For countless American kids, back to school time means shopping for new backpacks, supplies, and outfits. For millions of families, especially those whose children have asthma and other health or learning issues, it also means ensuring that their child’s school won’t make them sicker, or interfere with their learning.

With the closing of The Imus Ranch For Kids with Cancer, The Imus Ranch Foundation was formed to donate 100% of all donations previously devoted to The Imus Ranch for Kids with Cancer to various other charities whose work and missions compliment those of the ranch. The initial donation from The Imus Ranch Foundation was awarded to Tackle Kids Cancer, a program of The HackensackUMC Foundation and the New York Giants.  In addition, once the Imus Ranch for Kids with Cancer is sold, 100% of those funds will be contributed to The Imus Ranch Foundation.

    Live From the Greenroom: A Retraction

    Today I must post a retraction for an inaccurate depiction of Don Imus I wrote in yesterday’s installment of ‘From the Greenroom’.  In a lame attempt at humor, I painted a picture of the I-Man as an ugly, evil, horrible person, who suffers from an obsession with minutiae worse than any Type A personality, and that he brutalized our sweet and dedicated production assistant, Carley, for placing his cowboy hat upside down on a table.  In the interests of truthfully reporting the incident, I must set the record straight. 

    Don Imus is not ugly. 

    In fact, he is, what some women might consider, ‘hunky’.  Not Connell McShane pretty, mind you, but a rugged, striking individual, whose strong, almost woodcut features could adorn the cover of any Zane Grey novel.  Although I am not a homosexual, I can see where one would be deeply attracted to him.  In fact, I can easily picture a scenario in which I could actually ‘Get Physical’ with him.  Perhaps it’s because he has repeatedly told me how many times I have ‘hosed’ him. 

    What I failed to understand is that there is a sacred relationship between a cowboy and his hat, and that there are a lot of superstitions surrounding that relationship. For instance, a cowboy must NEVER place his hat on a bed, as it will most assuredly bring bad things.  A cowboy should never let someone wear his hat, unless he plans on taking them home.  And, in addition to it ruining the brim, if the hat is placed on a table the way it is worn on your head, all the luck will run out.  Of course, so will the lice, but I suppose that’s not as important as the potential loss of good fortune.

    I exaggerated the incident in an attempt to be humorous.  Here, in fact, is a verbatim transcript of what actually transpired:  

     

    IMUS:  Carley?

    Carley:  Yes, Mr. Imus?

    IMUS:  You’re doing a great job, really terrific, I just want to ask, if you don’t mind, that you not place my hat on the desk brim-down from now on.

    Carley:  I’m so sorry, Mr. Imus

    IMUS: Oh, that’s fine, no worries, you didn’t know.  I probably shouldn’t have even said anything about it in the first place.  I mean, it’s just a hat, I have about a thousand of them, so if the brim got bent I could just wear another one.  Or send Brant out in the limo to go purchase a few hundred more, just in case you keep forgetting how to properly rest it on the table.  I’m sorry I even brought it up.  I really shouldn’t obsess over it so much, it’s not like if you don’t place it correctly it will give me Cancer, which would be a moot point anyway, because you as you know, I already have Cancer.  Boy, Rob looks really great today, doesn’t he?  He sure looks like he’s lost a lot of weight.  Remind me to call Julie later and ask her if she wouldn’t mind booking Harold Ford Junior on the program.  I’ve been thinking about it, and he’s really a great guy after all. 

     

    Now, I ask you.  Is THAT the behavior of an ugly man?
