What ever happened to Willie Geist?
Still shows up on Today occasionally.

Last I knew he was hosting Sunday Today on NBC and Morning Joe on MSNBC...

Spec's on the net are that he may be a contender for ML replacement.

Re: Because Common Sense is Not Common

Nope. Some people in a turn-only lane don't realize that it is a turn-only lane and abort at the last minute. Assumption is not a good decision tree when driving a weapon. It's lazy. The whole "I don't have to signal if no one is within close proximity" argument is dangerous at best. Like not coming...

Re: And Who Thought This One Up?

I'm sticking with Trulicity. It has worked well for me. Glad to hear. That product's ads seem to be more along the lines of the traditional 'here's what it can do, who it's for, and 'here are the side effects'' type. It's also only for T2's, where the options are seemingly more varied, there's more...

Re: And Who Thought This One Up?

It doesn't have to be good, or represent the product in a logical manner. It just has to stick in your mind when the time comes to discuss it with your Dr., and between the repetition and familiar background music, perhaps it does that well enough for the mfg. As a T1 on the competing med, I can tel...

Viewers missed a big stop by the Lions defense which was wiped away with a penalty. (I got all this action info from my sports app). ...
