Sandra Fluke: Time Magazine ‘Person of the Year’ Finalist

TIME Honors Sandra Fluke as ‘Person of the Year’ Finalist.

That thirty-something Georgetown Student who had enough money for the 50,000 per year tuition at her upscale law-school, but who cried for public support of her birth control pills, could be Time Magazine’s person of the year!!

Pharmer might have been more sympathetic had Fluke cried for public support of her valacyclovir,  clindamycin, metronidazole, ceftriaxone, azithromycin, doxycycline, benzathine penicillin, imiquimod, or whatever antiretroviral she might need in the future.  After all, those are used to treat infectious disease states, which she might inadvertently obtain while plying her wares.

Time’s symbol of our times is a whining, useless, dysfunctional female, crying for tax support of her demand for  recreational drugs and devices.

It must be the Year of the Parasite.

Will we also be expected to buy her personal massager, once she becomes so nastaaay that no guy will get near her?

Bad Bugs: Antibiotic Resistant Gonorrhea

Experts Warn of Antibiotic-Resistant Gonorrhea: MedlinePlus.

Be afraid, very afraid……..  it’s getting harder to kill those gram negative diplococci, Neisseria gonorrhoeae .    A double whammy of third generation cephalosporin  (cefixime or ceftriaxone)  plus azithromycin or doxycycline is needed to kill the little buggs.   After those regimens fail,   the doc’s don’t know what to try next.

There’s a  strain in Japan  (H041) which is apparently resistant to everything.  Researchers are studying its mechanism of antibiotic resistance and  transmission of this trait to other strains.

Think about that next time you want  to party without your pants.
