Fascinating. I like your point about the missed opportunity to showcase a really impactful collaboration. What I learned later is that the particular zoo in question has been famously secretive about everything.. unlike other zoos. I was pretty pissed that they wouldnt let us write up a case report.. as you can see

😂 I agree that we could all use an uplifting and humorous human (err, orangutan) interest story right now. I’m so relieved Winaka is fully recovered and you were there to save her!

This part I disagree with, however:

“We sure could use one in light of the fact we are about to lose all sovereignty to Tedros and the WHO.”

Hell no, we aren’t! I published my objection to the IHR amendments (https://margaretannaalice.substack.com/p/letter-to-the-us-hhs-office-of-global) and have been collaborating with the World Council for Health (https://worldcouncilforhealth.org), Health Freedom Defense Fund (everyone should sign their World Freedom Declaration: https://healthfreedomdefense.org/wfd), and others on #StopTheAmendments, #StopTheTreaty, and #StopTheWHO, and we have them on the run! They’ve already dropped 12 of the 13 amendments and are feeling the heat of the Resistance (https://shabnampalesamohamed.substack.com/p/tedros-mentions-growing-resistance), so we’ve got to turn it up (https://jamesroguski.substack.com/p/turn-up-the-heat)!

P.S. Did you get my email this time? :-)

Dr. Kory, you did an impressive job immediately owning your oops and explaining. Wow. I tried to understand the refusal of the abstract, nor the pretentious rationalization (comprehensive plan, communicate, etc.!?). You know what? That Deputy Zoo Director was in love with himself and was one of those dog-in-the-manger narcissist types. The refusal was not in the best interests of the zoo, the primates or zoos and animals. He didn't run that by any higher ups, he just killed it. I bet a presentation to the Zoo Board/overseers would have turned that around. Ugh, I detest the power of the petty to way lay good.

Thank you Dr Kory, for all you do! Even for the orangutans! You are a force for light and truth that is so badly needed, in this dark world. We need more physicians like you and Paul!

Too bad they declined your offer. I am a retired veterinarian. Didn’t work with zoo animals, but the projects that I saw as collaborative work for zoos who coordinated veterinarians and human medical practitioners got the BEST public PR imaginable. Those folks missed a great opportunity to showcase their caring, compassion and cooperation. Water is already under that bridge though.

Don’t think for a minute that we ALL don’t have our own versions of ‘shop talk’ that is not intended for public consumption, but is nevertheless humorous and spot on.

Lucky for me, my patients never repeated what they heard in the ‘back room’!

You folks at FLCCC are my heroes. Don’t forget that.

Dr. Kory, I went to a CME conference this past weekend. One of the hour talks was “Primary Care Physicians Addressing Covid-19 Vaccine Hesitancy” by Dennis Cunningham, MD MHA. He was a Henry Ford Hospital Fauci mouthpiece. Dispicable lecture. Typical employed physician spewing what he’s told to say, in order to get a pay check and lots of thataboys. We need to get our CMEs from doctors like you. The jackass wouldn’t even take questions that went against his narrative and heavens forbid discuss Ivermectin. 4 days of my life I can’t get back except I did get 33 Category 1-A credits.

Well, a few things struck me..... It was fabulous to get a sense of proportion — I had no idea orangutangs grew that big! I am bowled over to see the size of that fuzzy fella :-) .....next - his fangs! wow they are some choppers! ....yeah...wouldn't want to face that guy in a bad mood... but then.......... "the-resend-to-all" golden faux pas was magnificently side-splitting — I'm sore from laughter; then to read Director Doolittle's pompous reply.......well that was too much - how stuffed and rigid was this bloke - sticking to his guns when others would've jumped at the collaborative approach? Pretentious arrogant prick comes to mind - pity there's not a vaccination at the ready against developing that variety of character. Condolences to all staff for their chronic headaches who had to work with that pin head - then again, one can only hope that email got leaked - would've been exquisite - theirs to cherish forever. Thanks for the great story!

Greatly appreciated this one, I needed a laugh as "monkeypox" descends on us. Our mainstream and WEF buddies are moving along with their fearporn - https://www.cnbc.com/2022/05/23/belgium-introduces-mandatory-monkeypox-quarantine-as-global-cases-rise.html - Thanks for keeping it real. Reading your substack helps me internalize I'm not the crazy one in an insane world.
