Spots and Star


My doctor looked at the spots on my leg and was dismissive: An insect bite, she said.
So I won't worry.
I put bleach on the spots yesterday, just in case they were non-itchy chigger bites. One of my commenters had suggested that. At any rate, the spots are fading.


I got a review today in the Chicago Jewish Star:
JUNE 5 - 18, 2009 CHICAGO JEWISH STAR
M A G A Z I N E S E C T I O N
By GILA WERTHEIMER
ASSOCIATE EDITOR
"The Adventures of Can -
cer Bitch by S.L. Wisen -
berg (University of Iowa
Press, 164 pp.,
$25), nothwithstanding
the sub -
ject matter, has
hu mor (often
dark, it’s true),
tenderness, pain,
questioning, matter-
of-fact narrative
and not a lot
of anger as she
chronicles her illness.
...Along the way, Wisen -
berg has been weepy, defiant,
cynical, impatient, ap -
preciative, giving, curious
— and a myriad other
descriptions that would
apply.
She riffs on Freud and
Susan Son tag, celebrates
Passover, mourns the
death of Grace Paley, goes
to services for Rosh Ha -
shanah and Yom Kippur
(but doesn’t believe in
God), attends yoga classes,
teaches writing and, of
course, writes.
Her ego shows, but so
does her vulnerability.
.... She’s not a bitch
but a woman who
has faced a lifethreatening
illness
with defiance and
courage, and who,
even when she’s
raging or struggling
against it can look
outside herself and
be a part of the world
around her."

Great review, congrats. But aren't you violating copyright by posting it in its entirety, instead of just linking?

Hmm. I don't know. But there's no link to it. Can you find one?

I did pare it down so you get a few choice parts and not the whole review.

Generic Viagra is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction. That is why it takes effect in 15 minutes compared to other drugs which take 30-40 minutes to take effect.

Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
