I could NOT believe my eyes when I saw this on Google News a few minutes ago.
Whoa. WHoa. WHOa. WHOA!
This guy portrayed himself as the Saint’s Saint.
He had Simon Cowell in tears.
And now this?
Please, don’t tell me it was the stress and pressure of the AGT Final.
He claimed that he had been through so much that that should have been but mere bagatelle.
Can he go back to being a pediatric nurse? I hope not.
Can he adopt anymore children? I hope not.
This is serious.
Full confession on my part. Those who know me know that I am a cynic’s cynic. A professional skeptic.
While his story impressed me, there was an element that it was ‘too GOOD to be true’. Somethings that did not gel. His tattoos and piercings were incongruous with the story he told. If he devoted all of his life to all of these kids he was raising he would not be spending money on tattoos and piercings. Think about it.
So, was it drugs? Was it alcohol?
He was Simon Cowell’s Golden Buzzer. Simon ol’ fruit. Over to YOU.

AGT 2018 Performance at the Final
Encore Performance at the ‘Results’ show
(on Wednesday of this week).
We have been hooked on him since the very first time we saw him on AGT a few months ago.
We have been rooting for him ever since.
I think he will, in a few years, he considered the GREATEST MAGICIAN of all times!
We so wanted him to win, but knew that a magician had never won AGT. Plus, he faced some stiff competition.
So, we were so, so happy that he won.
Can be no doubt or debate that he was a worthy winner. He is something else.
I will go to Las Vegas to see him. No question about that.
If you haven’t seen him, PLEASE, PLEASE watch on YouTube. This is MAGIC. He is MAGIC.
Search on ‘magic’ & ‘AGT’.
IF you have not seen him, PLEASE check out this video.
You will thank me. He is GOOD. Very Good. YouTube has MORE.
He has now made it to the semi-finals and we are happy. We rooted for him. He is beyond good. Extremely gifted.
While his music & talent should speak for itself, from his very first appearance MUCH has been made of his nerve pain and nerve damage (i.e., neuropathy). AGT milks it, given that they love to add color and contours to the performers.
So, I was watching him, intently, the other night and was struck by the extent of his tattoos. He has a lot of tattoos on his arm.
This got me thinking. When I was writing my “Central Pain” book I came to appreciate that nerve damage and nerve pain typically occurs because something ‘major’ triggered it. I got to wondering if all of his tattoos MIGHT HAVE HAD something to do with his never issues. I had never thought of that connection before.
Well I Googled and you can see the results above.
I am BY NO MEANS saying that this might have been a case. It is something to THINK about. Something to look into. IF I was him I would be asking my doctors … ‘could it in any way have been triggered by my tattoos?’
Look into it. Stranger things do happen.

With this, my latest book, I ended up ordering proofs from both Kindle KDP and CreateSpace. Nothing to stop you from doing so. You can’t publish the book with BOTH — but I haven’t published it at yet! I am at the ‘order proof’ stage with both and that is perfectly kosher. I did this with my last book too — except at that juncture I couldn’t order paperback proofs from Kindle KDP. I got the proofs from CreateSpace and eventually published with Kindle! They are BOTH Amazon companies so it is by no means robbing Peter to pay Paul.
So, both proofs printed by Amazon — and they both came in Amazon Prime boxes.
But, can you tell the difference, and whose is whose. A very obvious difference right up front.
Yes, the KDP proof as the ugly ‘Not for Resale’ banner. CS has never done that. Instead, they print a BIG ‘PROOF’ on the last page.
But, also an obvious difference in the quality of the cover. You can tell even in these photos. The CS cover is brighter and more detailed. That is crazy.
CS proofs were published in Columbia, South Carolina; Kindle in Middletown, Delaware.
Does CNN really think we are that stupid.
This has not been a good weekend for CNN. Their Pope series was not very good.
And then this.
What is the exclusivity here. Nothing new here. Fake news.
‘American Medical Association’ (AMA) Study On The Effectiveness Of Opioids On Chronic Back Pain — USELESS!
The Google News Headlines
March 9, 2018.
Waste of time & money.
This is NOT going to make a BLIND bit of difference.
This report will NOT convince a single doctor, patient or addict. They are all into this hook, like and bloody sinker.
This report actually made me angry because of its impotence.
It is like guns, the NRA and the politicians. Where are the opioid control laws? Just talk. Just chatter.
Common sense does NOT prevail. Money talks.
