“One Bird-flu Over the Coockoo’s Nest”

On 21 December 2011 the world became a more dangerous place. My co-author, Dr. Frank Malinoski has this to say: On that date we learned that a science article was to be censored (see NYTimes article here). Historic and unprecedented, yes. And Tony Fauci, head of the US NIH is quoted as saying that some […]

Ebony Book Club Event

Judith and her Crescent Veil co-author Dr. Frank Malinoski spent a wonderful evening recently with the members of Wilmington’s Ebony Book Club.  What wonderful and insightful discussions around Crescent Veil, my motivation for writing, and the history of biological weapons.  The fellowship, friendship, and dinner were awesome. I can’t wait to share the sequel with this […]

CONTAGION (the movie): Wash Your Hands (OF IT!!!)

It was the night before the 10th anniversary of 9/11, the anniversary of not only the horrible attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, and the plane crash in rural Pennsylvania, but also the anniversary of the date on the note inside the ANTHRAX LETTERS.

Review: The Lost Symbol by Dan Brown

The weight of our soul? Now that is an interesting question and the most mind flexing idea in Dan Brown’s, The Lost Symbol. I found myself holding my breath until the elaborate precise scale described, had locked in the final weight of a dead body after the soul had left it. An intriguing thought. I […]

Karl Rove, George W. Bush and WMDs

In a NY Times article about Karl Rove’s new book “Courage and Consequences: My Life as a Conservative in the Fight” reporter Peter Baker notes that, according to Rove, former President Bush would not have gone to war in Iraq had there not been weapons of mass destruction (WMDs) there. WOW! Of course Baker then […]
