We make a living out of cancerkilling—seeking roots anchoredunderneath the mutilated rungsof genes. Every moment lostto distractions is gain for meta-stasis; so, she declines to attendthe eclipse viewing—untouched the sunchips we have gathered in a bowl, the mooncakes arranged in packets of eight.And as the sky bruises into a paleindigo, shifts into the cusp of a silkydarkness—a narrowed ring of lightbehind a coin silhouette in the sky,tightening lunar shadows swolleninto a temporary night—her gaze growsfiercer under the eye of a microscope,breaths braiding thicker into heaves—unknownto us how this shadow afternoon remindsher of her brother’s passing many years ago;underneath an Alabama sun, aged three and a half,helpless as the cancer spread, grewmore of him, his death—another kindof darkness.

Legislation for Increased Rank for Medical Officers

Mar, 27/03/2018 - 02:00
On several occasions The Journal has emphasized the importance of legislation for increased rank and authority for officers of the Medical Reserve Corps.

In any event, some such legislation is not only desirable, but also vitally necessary if common justice is to be rendered to the Medical Reserve Corps, and if the best results are to be achieved by the Medical Department. Apparently the only active opposition thus far has come from the general staff and the Secretary of War. If the newspapers of the country mirror public opinion, certainly the public is in favor of this legislation.
