Lord, have mercy.
"There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that “my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.""

I know how painful the recovery from that kind of surgery can be. Lord have mercy!

I had a double hernia repaired about 20 years ago. The recovery was very painful. But I hear that hernia surgery is much more advanced today, and the recovery shouldn't be too bad. Hang in there my brother.
