Miss Diagnosis

Germicidal Tendencies

By Whitny Doyle, R.N.

The sore throat starts on Monday. Tuesday adds a headache and congestion. On Wednesday, you ask to leave work after almost hacking up your lungs onto a client, but your boss is being uptight. So you tough it out and go home exhausted, skipping dinner and falling into bed. You feel a little better on Thursday, so off to work you go. But by Thursday night, you feel like the victim of a hit-and-run. So you call the doctor early Friday. She can squeeze you in that afternoon. You ask your boss if you can leave early for a doctor’s appointment. He gives you a disapproving look like you’re a naughty 4-year-old, informing you that he’ll need to see a doctor’s note.

Odds & Ends

By Devin D. O’Leary

Dateline: India—A herd of drunken elephants went on a rampage in eastern India, destroying 60 homes and killing three people, after downing gallons of liquor. Villagers along the remote border of neighboring states Orissa and West Bengal had been stockpiling a popular fermented-rice-based drink for an upcoming festival. According to Bijay Kumar Panda, a local administrator, the elephants found the earthenware containers full of rice wine and proceeded to guzzle it all. They then staggered through a string of villages, only “to fall asleep hither and thither, throwing local life completely haywire.” According to New Delhi’s Pioneer newspaper, the elephants are known for “their love for local country-made brew” which they “gulp down” and “make merry at the cost of villagers.”

Letters

Your restaurant review says The Grove Café is located in Huning Highlands [ Chowtown Restaurant Guide, The Grove Café and Market]. Actually, it is in East Downtown—an official neighborhood of the city that includes the businesses and residents along Central Avenue and Broadway Boulevard in our redeveloping and improving area of the city. If there were not an EDo, there would not be a Grove. Before EDo, Central and Broadway around here could be defined in one word—sketchy. The East Downtown Master Plan from 2003 brought this community together, including residents of Huning Highlands, to craft a new vision and new zoning for Central and Broadway. This vision has borne much fruit—such as Jason and Lauren Greene and their great restaurant—and will continue to do so. I totally agree with the rest of the review: The Grove is a delicious delight!
