The HOT ZONE: May 14, 2024

Blood clots, POTS, AstraZeneca's clot shot pulled from market, Cuomo brothers' surprising admissions, Canada's new hate crime bill, our new Age of Orthodoxy, bird flu rising.

Another week, another array of strange, surprising, and perplexing events in our world that often seems bereft of prudent adult leadership. With each episode of the HOT ZONE, we endeavor to expose and analyze the hurly-burly with cool heads.

After our conversation, I found myself wondering if we are currently living in an exceptionally crazy period, afflicted with exceptionally bad politicians. I consoled myself by reading a few remarks by H.L. Mencken, who reported his perceptions of American life a century ago. Though often harsh and verging on cynical, Mencken’s remarks remind us that there is nothing new under the sun.

A good politician is quite as unthinkable as an honest burglar.

Every election is a sort of advance auction sale of stolen goods.

The men the American people admire most extravagantly are the most daring liars; the men they detest most violently are those who try to tell them the truth.

The urge to save humanity is almost always only a false-face for the urge to rule it.

The most dangerous man to any government is the man who is able to think things out for himself, without regard to the prevailing superstitions and taboos. Almost inevitably he comes to the conclusion that the government he lives under is dishonest, insane, and intolerable.


Dallas has gotten a ton of rain this spring and the trees and flowering plants are exploding with vitality and a prodigious amount of pollen. I have found XLEAR nasal spray enormously beneficial in keeping my nasal passages clear and free of congestion. It’s especially useful at night, when good sleep is synonymous with easy breathing through the nose.

XLEAR’s Xylitol nasal sprays cleanse the nasal passages of bacteria, viruses, allergens, and other forms of air pollution. Its hypertonic solutions alleviate swelling and open the air passages without discomfort, cleansing and hydrating at the same time.

XLEAR originated in the research of Dr. Lon Jones, who delved deeply into research from Finland about the benefits of xylitol. Impressed by these landmark Finnish studies, Dr. Jones developed a xylitol nasal spray to treat his patients who had persistent upper-respiratory infections.

Dr. Jones successfully treated his granddaughter’s ear infections, and then began dispensing the solution to other patients with ear, nose, and throat issues. The results were astounding. In 2000, Nathan Jones, Dr. Jones’ son, founded Xlear Inc. in order to make the nasal spray commercially available.
