About WE WANT THEM INFECTED:
The book is a forensic analysis of the contrarians’ erroneous assumptions of safety and the damage done during a pandemic. Whilst spouting what should happen and what will happen, contrarians completely misinterpreted, downplayed, and distorted what was happening. They spouted frequent predictions of imminent herd immunity that never came. They forecasted underestimates of the mortality and from behind a desk suggested over intubation was an issue. These error-rich, self-promoting activists through their various platforms advocated that adults should be protected via an infect-the-children strategy. Unfortunately for both children and parents the hazards were real; they did get sick, they did spread the virus, and some are still paying the price. Howard kept the receipts. The distorted contrarians’ views of the situation are presented alongside the reality. The 27 reasons to not vaccinate children are scientifically dismantled. The consequences of this erroneous propagation on people compared to the contrarians is unjust.I thought the real pandemic error was getting the Mode of Transmission wrong. The evidence in this book is that the contrarians did as much damage with their erroneous assumptions of safety. Although they will never admit, apologise, nor remedy, one can only hope that registration authorities will consider action necessary.“This book is fundamentally about the obligations doctors [and nurses] have when communicating with the public [and colleagues] about a deadly virus.” I would also add and the obligations of these healthcare workers to correct erroneous statements.
Dr. Howard breaks down how certain medical community and public health professionals simply let the United States public down. Probably responsible for hundreds of thousands of Americans not making it through the pandemic.He tells the story, names the folks and brings the receipts with about 200 pages of footnotes.An amazing opportunity for readers to learn about vaccines and the price of disinformation.
“For anyone who didn’t know Jim Webb, this book of fine poems is an apt biography. But not only is it a biography: it is equally something of a hagiography of the man once serio-comically addressed, in his most famous poem, as “Jesus.” Reading these poems, we encounter the depth and breadth and persistence of Jim Webb’s life and work—its sometimes terrible, awful, raging grace—and we see and hear what a secular Appalachian prophet and saint might look and sound like. For those who knew Jim for a long time, this book is the occasion of both joy and grief. We re-live him in his various guises and poses, hear his voice, watch his antics and his resistances, and we miss him.
For all readers, Hilda Downer’s collection is a document of large love, devoted craft, and rich memories. There is really nothing like it in American poetry that I know of—an Acts of the Apostle of a complicated and flawed man, who lived a life at times of excess, and paid for it—spleen against greedheads and despoilers, among them most probably the arsonists who burned him out time after time, anger against injustice and abandonment—not only of human beings and their better angels, but of the land itself, given over to strip miners and mountain-top removers, which caused him deep suffering, and which engendered his vision and voice, reminiscent of the Beats.
But of all Jim Webb’s excesses, the greatest of these were his generosity and love. They are reflected back into our lives through this sharp, true, totally unsentimental yet adoring book.”
—Richard Hague, author of During the Recent Extinctions: New & Selected Poems 1984-2012
“Wiley’s Last Resort is an affectionate tribute to the poet, activist, and radio personality Jim Webb. Hilda Downer, in poems vivid and compelling, celebrates Wiley Quixote (Webb), his dedication, voice, his fight against mountaintop removal, his inspiration to other poets, implicitly giving us fresh ways of seeing the contemporary Appalachian region and its people. Wiley Quixote is a person of contradictions and delight, remembered for his honesty, surprising energy, wit and generosity, love of community. He lives again in these poems.”
—Robert Morgan, author of Boone: A Biography
“What a fine, poetic tribute Hilda Downer pays here to the late Jim Webb, iconic and iconoclastic Kentucky poet and raconteur. The poems include wide-ranging ruminations on art, poetry, and philosophy infused with a whimsy characteristic of Webb himself. That said, Downer does not neglect the gravitas with which Webb saw his role of painting an accurate portrait of Appalachia and its people, as well as his role as a combatant in the struggle to save the local environment. It’s also impressive how these poems capture the essence of Webb’s unremittingly zany re-naming of the world known as WILEY’S LAST RESORT, his camp-cum-conference center-cum demi-paradise there in south-eastern Kentucky. Nothing is missed in Downer’s deftly poetic observations, not the “pink flamingo stakes,” not even a discarded Emu! This is a fine book offering both a reverent and irreverent testimony to a man beloved by so many.”
—Marc Harshman, Poet Laureate of West Virginia and author of Woman in Red Anorak (Blue Lynx Prize)
