Letter writer Brad Ipsen’s options regarding Herald columnist Sid Schwab are, “in the interest of fairness…” understandable. However, the good doctor must address both sources of the disease and the cure. Follow-up visits to the proposed cure are needed because patients often do not follow through taking all of their medicine and disease remains lurking.
Trump said “I listened to him (Dr. Fauci) but I did not do what he said.” That is what disease in the body does. The disease in our country is still here alive and supported by the refusal of the patient to take the medicine. We listen to the good physicians but refuse to take the medicine; and consequently the patient is at risk of death. Today, “A spoon full of sugar helps the medicine go down” is an unacceptable palliative to the cure of disease and contributes to diabetes. We need a doctor’s advice.
Many, like Trump, will listen but refuse to take all the medicine. Canceling Dr. Schwab is an easy escape from truth.
