Today's As It Stands

If it's Sunday then it's time for As It Stands! Today's column is - Prosthetic ears, thieves, and payback. This, unlike last week's column on McCain, is not a real controversial column.
It's more to educate people about ear implants, what they involve, and how common they are becoming in our society today. I do mention thieves that are stealing them thinking they are Blue Tooths. It's really amazing how stupid some people can be!
When my Dad got his he was one of the first in the country to do so. It was a big thing and I went to Good Samaritan Hospital in Portland with him when he had the procedure done in 1985. I wrote about it in the newspaper that I was editor of - The Desert Trail in 29 Palms.
If you have a friend or loved one that has extreme hearing problems then you might even look into these ear implants. They are so advanced now that new born babies can get one! There is some small controversy among the deaf community as to even getting these implants. Apparently some people think that if they were born deaf - for example - then that's the way God wanted it and man shouldn't mess around with such things! To me, that's a pretty narrow view, and one that I don't subscribe to. Bu, it takes all kinds to make up this world doesn't it?
If you haven't read the column yet just go over to my Links - and you can find the Times-Standard there with it.
You can make comments at the end of this blog - just look for the part where it says Dave Posted this at - the time - and then the word comment. Next to it is a little icon - a piece of paper and a pencil. Hit comments and then follow the instructions.
