From the final “Connect Time” in Circuit Cellar Issue #80, March 1997: “I do want to thank a few individuals who have contributed above and beyond the call over the last 10 years (and, I'm hopeful, for years to come). Specifically, Bob Paddock, Pellervo Kaskinen, George Novacek, Jim Meyer, and Ed Nisley. I could always count on one of these sharp guys to have an intelligent, well-thought-out answer to some of the most off-the-wall questions I've ever seen.” — Ken Davidson former SYSOP/Editor-In-Chief Circuit Cellar Magazine

Sometimes we choose our mission in life, other times it chooses us.

Due to my wife's suicide I have become very active in the medical community in raising awareness of Intracranial Hypotension due to Cerebrospinal Fluid (CSF) Leaks, the deadly Fluoroquinolone antibiotics that should be removed from the market and helping those that Karen left behind that suffer from the same conditions that she did.

CSF Leaks are a condition that is more common that many think (for example Actor George Clooney had/has a CSF Leak and considered suicide), yet is so unknown that some doctors argue the condition does not even exist.

Fluoroquinolone antibiotics (Cipro, Levaquin and 20 other names) were a significant contributor to Karen's suicide. Karen's Journal was entered as evidence in the November 5th 2015 FDA Review Hearing on how truly devastating these drugs can be to your health.
