  1. Great guest, great program, Daisy and Gregg. I've personally known a person who died from an abscessed tooth. That's an infection in the head and it can go to the brain. This person, who couldn't afford basic dental care (Medicaid in SC won't cover any dental for adults now, by the way...) ended up in the hospital in ICU, before death. It was a terrible, unnecessary tragedy, and an expensive one for tax payers. Also Gregg, most SC grandparents voted Southern Democrat, not Republican. I can remember when SC was a one party state, and Democratic. To understand what has happened in the south, watch Uprising of 34...

    Thanks for an interesting morning. Doris, an upstate Friend.
