As I write this, I am surrounded by cats. It's near breakfast time, you see. Most of them are in good health, although each of them has their own issues. One has asthma, another has diabetes, yet another has urinary tract issues, you know how it is. My cats are a microcosm of the health problems of the average American family.
& yet, despite the massive amount of health coverage on this week's show, feline health was given short shrift. You'd think, as the owner of four cats, I might be inclined to weigh in on the issues that affect the wellness of kittens, but let's be frank here: they could not care any less about my own health. Not one of them ever says, "Hey, dad, maybe that's enough whiskey for tonight." Or "Hey, papa, do you really need all ten of those cookies?" Or, "Yo pops, I know we lie around all day & make it look good, but you could really use some exercise." Nope. Not a single damned word from them. Until it's time to eat, like now. Then they're all up in my grill.
In any event, there's so much more health covered on this week's show that you'll not miss any discussion or discursion about feline health or canine health or cephalopod health or whatever. It also won't affect your healthcare plan, if you're lucky enough to have one. You're covered, for this show at least. Nothing out of pocket. But I can't write scrips. Sorry.
Listen now at Self Help Radio dot net. You must use a username (SHR) & a password (selfhelp) to access the show. These are available on the page as well. The show is two hours long, & divided into two parts. What songs are played in each part, plus what guests might be interviewed, are listed below.
If I were as cool as Stephen "Colbert Report" Colbert, I'd say, "I'll see you in health!" But even he isn't that cool anymore.
