To See and Not See Early in October of 1991, I got a phone call from a retired minister in the Midwest, who told me about his daughter's fiancé, a fifty-year-old man named Virgil, who had been virtually blind since early childhood. He had thick cataracts and was also said to have retinitis pigmentosa, a hereditary condition that slowly but implacably eats away at the retinas. But his fiancée, Amy, who required regular eye checks herself because of diabetes, had recently taken him to see her own ophthalmologist, Dr. Scott Hamlin, and he had given them new hope. Dr. Hamlin, listening carefully to the history, was not so sure that Virgil did have retinitis pigmentosa. It was difficult to be certain at this stage, because the retinas could no
Not only does it show a medical procedure that went terribly wrong and ruined not one life but a whole family. It shows how scientists and experts can be wrong in their analysis of things. When they were just eight months old, twins Bruce and Brian Reimer where admitted to the hospital to undergo a routine circumcision, wherein most of Bruce’s penis was burned off accidentally. Embarrassed, and afraid that their son would be ostracized by his peers when he reached adolescence; parents Ron and Jane Reimer began to seek a way to repair the damage.

My family also had a few pets before Hollie. For instance, we had Mousikins, who froze to death in the garage, and Swimmy, who went belly-up one night and got flushed down the toilet the next day. Whenever a pet dies, it is a sad thing but we did get over it. However, according to Burkhard Bilger in his essay “The Last Meow” from The New Yorker, Americans may be going too far to help their pets live a long time. Bilger says that “our love affair with our pets has gotten out-of-control,” and I for one agree.
