Nice, Vince. Okay, there were a couple misplaced commas and hanging phrases but really a great piece.
@Bob Lodds-if you read the article you will see it features the activities of people who have joined Midwest within the last four years or so. There is a reference to the group previously being made up of people who had dubious dealings. Those people are gone. That's the point of the article. Furthermore, the current president of Midwest wasn't even born yet when Midwest acquired 4070.
By all means, and I say this with utmost sincerity, please email or call to clarify which pieces of non-quoted information you feel you aren't associated with and we will be happy to discuss further.
I can't actually verify what pinarello says about this "church" group. However, I can definitely verify, and perhaps should have emphasized when writing this blog post, that the organizers asking people to come out to blot out Westboro people if they show, are also asking you to STAY HOME if you have any doubt whatsoever about your ability to keep your mouth shut and not engage in discourse, argument, or worse with these people.
@Kenny. The US EPA apparently has scientists. Basically, the emissions numbers the Ohio EPA has been entertaining do not fall within the federal laws dictating the emissions a "minor" pollution source can have. Therefore, the US EPA is asking the permit application to be redone to reflect that it is a major source of pollution, and because of that redisignation, the US EPA also is requiring numbers for emissions of additional pollutant types that "minor" pollution sources do not have to reveal, but major sources do have to reveal, in order to meet federal clean air regulations.
@ndb177 and Hilary-Didn't mean to offend anyone. This was meant to be sarcastic. I'm well aware of the difference between first year anatomy and a surgical residency. And my point is basically true--the first time any new surgeon encounters the additional problems associated with obese patients is going to be when they are actually in a real OR.
And no, I have no data however, it's well known that surgeons in various specialties often have great difficulty with procedures in the morbidly obese and in some cases, cannot do them at all. I imagine a Pubmed search would turn up some outcomes data in obese vs. nonobese patients, if only for a specific procedure.
I have done lots of rudimentary research into a lot of medical things. I've been a clinical medical writer for 25 years with a number of specialty areas. Again, this is a blog and the post was meant to put a sarcastic spin on an MSNBC news article. We do a lot of that here on the Scene blog.
@BLB I stand corrected. It should read "increased risk of diabetes..." Thanks for pointing it out. This is the blog, not the magazine, but we do our best to copy edit the blog before posts go online. Sometimes things slip through.
