Let’s all speak up for Dr. Davis

This is a challenge to Dr. Henry Davis’ patients and medical professionals who agree with letters in the Tribune-Star on July 15 and July 18 regarding Dr. Davis and holding him in high esteem. Let us all speak up to encourage our dedicated physician, through letters to editor or other resources. Find a way to testify for him to those trying to destroy this dedicated physician’s career.

Please pray for strength and encouragement for him and his family and that he be exonerated from all charges.

How is it as patients that our personal medical records are necessary but unavailable to make appointments with another rheumatologist?

I am grateful for Dr. Davis’ treatments over last 10 to 15 years, which have included physical therapy, injections for severe inflammation to joints and anti-inflammatory prescriptions — no pain prescriptions. But there are those who are in dire need of pain prescription.

May his name be cleared and his practice reinstated so we as his patients may return to our rheumatologist.

Should we strive to ban gasoline?

A so-called assault weapon is the perfect thing to have if faced with multiple attackers.

And, yes, I shoot clay pigeons (stationary, of course!), birds and animals with my “assault weapon” as well. Lots of folks hunt with them. It’s a nice gun.

If the theater had allowed licensed persons to carry their handguns into the place, it may not have been so bad. I say sue ’em for not adequately fulfilling the security needs of their patrons.

Oh, I keep forgetting that using a weapon in the defense of self and others is no longer acceptable (or necessary) now that we have 911. Darn me.

The monster also booby-trapped his apartment using, among other things, a lot of gasoline.

He apparently wanted to kill some of the cops as well.

Should we ban gasoline?
