This was from today's Budget Hearings on Health Care in Harrisburg Pa. State Rep Mario Scavello asks "What are you doing about lyme disease?"

Try not to get too riled up, folks...

Thanks for sharing that, hens!

Hats off to Rep Scavello! The response to his questions was very poor, as expected.

Can you imagine attacking this horrendous problem by posting signs that say "Watch out for ticks" and trying to immunize all of the deer population??!!

That responder is in La-La land!

And don't even get me started on that map...."it's not in the western part of PA..".....Grrrrrr!

If anyone (not even just from PA) wants to thank Rep. Scavello, go to http://www.marioscavello.com/contact.aspx.

What a difference we could make if we would all raise our voices, even in appreciation.

Hi hens!

I tried the link to thank Rep Scavello, but it said "the page cannot be found".

Dear Dek, sometimes I get the feeling that you and I are the only posters who live in PA. Are the others shy or what? [Smile]

Hi hens & Dekrator, I am on the shy side & live in PA but wanted to thank you for your posts.

Sent out a thank you to Rep. Scavello. God bless him for his effort!

Wonder if 3 Stooges could make a comeback with a show on immunizing PA deer .... and why not the mice, too? [lol]

Well, we know there are at least 3 of us in PA!!

I can picture the 3 Stooges chasing all the deer around trying to figure out which ones already had their immunization! [Big Grin] [bonk]

I'm not from PA, but just watched the video and sent a message of appreciation to Scavello on his website.

Funny, as I was watching the video and saw that opthalmologist go on and on about immunological sequellae bla bla bla, I just wanted to poke him in the EYES.

Turns out the opthalmologist, who likes to ramble on and on about immunological sequellae and his idea to vaccinate all the deer, is PA's Health Secretary. Interesting article about him:
