Dr. Carney’s most recent posts are to be found here. He is in the process of compiling a complete archive of all articles he has written since his retirement from professional social work practice in 2010. All his blogs have as their focus issues pertaining to social justice; are generally placed in their historical context; and, ultimately, are subjected to in-depth analyses whose aim is to promote a full understanding of the issues being addressed.
My name is Dr. Jack Carney, a native of Brooklyn but currently living in Long Lake in northern New York’s Adirondacks. Let me proceed by telling you we have a lot in common: same age, 79; stutterers in our youth; raised Roman Catholic (although I, unlike you, am non-practicing); and both most likely to outlive traditional Medicare, or Medicare as we have known it for our entire lives.
