Where There Is Smoke, There Is Fire: A Third Woman Comes Forward

In the latest news regarding the Brett Kavanaugh hearings, a third woman has come forward.

Julie Swetnick stated that when Judge Kavanaugh was in high school, he and several others boys purposefully spiked the drinks of girls attending local parties to ensure that they would be sexually compliant.

With the previous two accusers, one could have argued that this was the act of an underage boy who drank too much and acted stupidly because he drank too much.

The argument is out the window, especially with the new turn of events.

If the accusations are true and Judge Kavanaugh acted maliciously with the intent of gang rape, he should not be confirmed. If the Republicans still push Judge Kavanaugh through, in spite of the new allegations, then they had better pray that they can keep their majority come November. There are too many women in this country who have been raped or sexually assaulted who have the power to vote and have the power to send a men to those in Washington who think that they hold the cards.

Where there is smoke, there is fire.

New Amsterdam Review

Anyone who has ever been in a management position can attest that a good part of their daily workload includes putting out figurative fires.

In the new NBC show, New Amsterdam, Dr. Max Goodwin (Ryan Eggold) is the new medical director of the fictional New Amsterdam hospital in New York City. New Amsterdam hospital is one of the oldest public hospitals in the country. He believes that treatment of patients comes before billing, which might not sit well with upper management. While he is juggling his new job, Max is dealing with his own health issues and the upcoming birth of his first child.

I really enjoyed the first episode. The writing, acting and pacing of the episode was just right. The show, for me, at least also highlighted that the medical industry has partially lost its way.Β  Patients come second, billing comes first.

I recommend it.

New Amsterdam airs 10pm on Tuesday night on NBC.
