She became unwell, so she went to the only hospital in her area that would see African-American patients, Johns Hopkins. Henrietta was first misdiagnosed andContinue reading “Henrietta Lacks: Could I even live without her?”

The 13 Ghosts of Nancy Drew

Nancy Drew 3 Pretzels Have you heard gang? There’s a new Nancy Drew in town and she’s moderately cooler than most but not all versions of Nancy Drew that you’ve seen in the past.

Wunderbrow: Could I Even Survive Without It?

  No. The answer is no. With Thanksgiving right around the corner, I thought I’d mention the few things I’m grateful for. So, what is a Wunderbrow? Well, it’s an eyebrow filler that is top-notch. Typically, an intentional misspelling of a product name when it seems to serve no purpose is a hard no forContinue reading “Wunderbrow: Could I Even Survive Without It?”

Wealthy Parents Just Don’t Even Stand a Chance of Survival in Gotham

Batwoman 4 Pretzels Hey guys, are you watching Batwoman? You really should be. I mean, I was wary at first.

Ladies, We Can Do Better

You guys, I love mysteries. I read them, I write them. I love them. So, I decided to give two of the big names in the genre Janet Evanovich and Donna Andrews. I was…underwhelmed and disappointed. Let’s begin with the problematic Janet Evanovich. I read, well, tried to read, Wicked Appetite. Wicked Appetite is setContinue reading “Ladies, We Can Do Better”
