Medicine Through the Ages...

I just stole this off someone's MySpace page. (I'm sure he stole it from somewhere else on the web, too.)

2000 BC, Here eat this root.
1000 AD, That root is for a heathen, here say this prayer.
1850 AD, That prayer is superstition, here drink this potion.
1940 AD, That potion is snake oil, here swallow this pill.
1985 AD, That pill is ineffective, here take this antibiotic
2000 AD, That antibiotic is artificial, here eat this root.

Site Issues

Okay, after three days of chaos and confusion, the issues that have plagued the site since Thursday are now resolved.  I have reactivated the forum and turned poetry, story, art, and essay submissions back on.

I have decided to do something different with the book, music, movie, and game review sections, and have kept them closed to submissions until I complete the changes there.

I apologize for any inconvenience readers and writers may have experienced these past few days.

Thank you.
