    Cambridge: The Casebook Project

    In early 17th-century England, Simon Forman and Richard Napier became well known for their apparent ability to diagnose and cure medical ailments -- from delirium and depression to gonorrhea and "bloody flux" -- by studying the positions of planets and stars.

    Reams of their handwritten notes on 80,000 cases survived, but filled with cryptic scribbles, mysterious astral symbols and prescriptions for curious treatments involving tobacco and horse dung, they'd be hard for most people to decipher.

    That changed on Thursday. To mark a decade of the University of Cambridge's Casebook Project, aimed at digitizing one of the largest surviving sets of private medical records in history, researchers released transcriptions of their 500 favorite cases online, put into accessible English for anyone to browse.

    Call your state legislators and insist they approve the Article V convention of States to propose amendments.


    I pledge allegiance to the Constitution as written and understood by this nation's founders, and to the Republic it created, an indivisible union of sovereign States, with liberty and justice for all.
