Medicine, junk science, greed, racism, chicanery, but most of all massive failures of communication on every possible level and in every relationship. It's hard to believe all this happened within our lifetimes. I had to shake my head in wonder that Henrietta was exactly the same age as my mother and her daughter Deborah was the same age as I.
