Quote of the Day
Measles is probably the best argument for why there needs to be global health, and why we have to think about it as a global public good. Because in a sense, measles is the canary in the coal mine for immunization. It is, you know, highly transmissible. The vaccine costs 15 cents, so it's not - you know, shouldn't be an issue in terms of cost.
If any country was a mine-shaft canary for the reintroduction of cholera, it was Haiti - and we knew it. And in retrospect, more should have been done to prepare for cholera... which can spread like wildfire in Haiti... This was a big rebuke to all of us working in public health and health care in Haiti.
Like the canary in the coal mine, the climate changes already evident in the Arctic are a call to action.
My father used to run auctions. He's now a singer in the Canary Islands.
Israel is the canary in the mine. What happens to Israel will eventually happen to America itself.
We're performing several shows in the Canary Islands.
That's what the cat said to the canary when he swallowed him - 'You'll be all right.'
We went to Denmark twice and Germany and also to the Canary Isles one year. I remember once when we were playing Dresden in Germany.
I'm always amazed by those people who get up at 5 and write till 8 and then eat a peach and walk their canary and write two hours more and then are free to collect firewood for the rest of the afternoon. Because I just walk around thinking about plays, and when they seem ready, I don't get out of my robe, and I sit down for a week and draft them.
