Would you put a severed foot in your coat of arms? Brook Watson would.

Judging by my friends’ status updates on Facebook , people are really excited about Shark Week (and everyone is still enamored with Tracy Jordan’s counsel on “30 Rock” to live every week like it’s Shark Week).

Fleeing Cuban health care

NY Times: ... While the rest of the country is suffering from a shortage of primary care physicians, Miami is awash with Cuban doctors who have defected in recent years.
