    A pathologist would now like to do more autopsies on the deceased who were vaccinated against Corona - and his theses have received a lot of criticism. He himself emphasizes that vaccination is an essential part of the fight against the virus. The chief pathologist at the University of Heidelberg, Peter Schirmacher, urges many more autopsies of vaccinated people. In addition to corona deaths, the corpses of people who die in connection with a vaccination would also have to be examined more frequently, said Schirmacher of the German Press Agency in Stuttgart. The director of the Pathological Institute in Heidelberg...

    I was saddened to discover earlier today that FReeper TedGrant passed away on December 12, 2020. His 53rd birthday would have been January 6, 2021. I was not a super close friend of his, but we had some correspondence over the years after getting acquainted years ago on the daily Michael Savage thread. Right before he passed he had a medical emergency and he was said to have had Bell's Palsy. He stated he hadn't received the Covid vaccine. I also know he had some heart problems a few years prior. From what I can determine, he passed away from...

    My Dad passed at around 11:45am at the hospital. We were expecting it, but hearing it still hurts a lot. He got e-coli by eating raw oysters or clams when on vacation in the early 80s, before I was conceived. My parents had been trying to have a kid, but that was preventing it; they eventually found out what it was, but the damage had been done by then. Some years ago, he found out his kidneys were failing. He found out about the PD dialysis which he could do at home, and was optimistic about the future, how he...

    My brother Kirk Randolph Elder died suddenly and unexpectedly 16 days before his 70th birthday. He and Tresta, his wife of 41 years, had planned a trip to Hawaii, where they were going to celebrate Kirk’s birthday. Kirk was a retired supervisor at an oil refinery, and we were extremely close. He started coming on my radio show about four years ago, reluctantly at first. We’d discuss politics, culture and sports. A registered Democrat, he and I often disagreed. Yet, week after week, I received letters from listeners who called him their “favorite Democrat.” Kirk always showed respect for Republicans...

Fortunately, even at a high rate of speed on a twisty 2 lane road, she missed everyone, and his a intersection light pole, injuring no other person, or causing no one else and damage. Her spirit, or soul, departed the instant of the stroke, we were assured by the doctors (as well as the lack of high speed crash injuries in a conscious person). The doctors, or more importantly, the nurses at Memorial Hermann Medical Center 7th floor Neuroscience...
