One minute to go, and farewell for four days. Looking forward to the new and improved site. See you on the other side, friends!
I see no change so far, I am reminded of the 'Beyond the fringe' sketch of the end of the world, "Not quite the cataclysm we were counting on, still, same time tomorrow lads, must hit a winner one day".
Funny how teenage boys learn things by heart, I know Flanders and Swan and Beyond the fringe. The next generation knows Monty Python, and a bit younger know Fawlty Towers.
Jennings managed to keep on his staff, for six years, an ACTUAL medical journalist, the late Nick Regush. Regush spent many hours digging below the surface. For example, in 1999, in a blistering ABC report, he expressed serious doubt that the Hepatitis C virus exists. After his departure from the network, he echoed that report:
“Consider this a challenge in progress. This scientific adventure raises the question of whether the hepatitis C virus, blamed for a major silent epidemic of liver disease and even cancer, actually exists. That’s right. You read this correctly: I am raising a question that may disturb scientists and hepatitis C patients alike. But I’m raising it anyway because it is vital to do so in the interests of public health. I’m issuing a challenge to the scientific community to present me with the published, peer-reviewed scientific evidence that such a virus actually exists---namely that it has been properly isolated, according to accepted, fundamental principles of virology.”
Were Regush working for ABC today, he would last about five minutes before being fired.
