Hi Sarah, I am so sorry about your miserable health issue. I spent many years going through it myself. Inflammation [rawness] of the tonsils, and fever, is the sign of an infection; that is the reason they treat with antibiotics. There are many different bacteria or viruses which can cause this infection, and some will not be killed off by some antibiotics, so it is necessary for the Docs to use the right one!!!!! Obviously, they have not used the right one, or a strong enough dosage of the right one. More important than the suffering which you experience, is the fever of 104.8. This is approaching the dangerous area. You need to return to the hospital everytime an antibiotic fails to solve the problem. Keep a record of the antibiotics, or better yet, all the empty bottles [with ID label] to show them what has NOT WORKED. Keep returning and pressing them until they find the right antibiotic, or the proper dose. I went through exactly what you describe for years, except with me, the infection would spread to my sinuses and Eustachian Tubes [to my Ears], and to my Bronchial Tubes to my lungs. Finally at the age of 22 the Docs said that the only way to stop the problem would be to remove my tonsils. It did stop the Tonsillitis, but did not stop the Sinus, Eustachian Tube, and the URI [Upper Respiratory Infection]. The failure of the antibiotics to kill whatever is causing the infections suggests that the Docs aren't using the Right antibiotic. As for what you can do yourself, I suggest: 1. Frequent gargling with warm salt water [about one teaspoon of salt dissolved in a glass of very warm [NOT hot] water. This will soothe the inflamed tissue, and helps somewhat to control the extent of infection. 2. Frequently brush your teeth using a good toothpaste. This will help to limit the size of the colony of critters causing the infection, and thus reduce the inflamation and the pain. 3. In between, suck on a small chunks of ice, also to help soothe the inflamed tissues. 4. Do all possible to boost your immune system. a. Eat as healthy a diet as you possibly can. b. Take a daily Multivitamin supplement. c. Get at least 7 to 8 hours of sleep each night. d. If possible, rest and/or take naps during the day. In effect, get as much rest as possible. 5. Try to limit coughing as much as possible as this tends to irritate the inflamed tissues.

Look up the 1983 Grammy Awards and the American Music Awards. I believe he won nine Grammy Awards that year.

Other than having your tonsils removed there is nothing else to do but take antibiotics. Your tonsils are there to help fight infections. When they are swollen, it is because of infection in your body. For twenty years I had suffered with this problem. Some of the things that help is to gargle with salt water. Since you have had this medical condition three times I would suggest changing some of your daily habits. For instance, do you wash your hair before going out. If so, don't. Do it before bedtime. Keep your throat wrapped up from exposure to the cold and keep your head covered and your feet from being wet. Start eating yogart since it is a probiotic. Make sure you are taking all the antibiotics as prescribed. I hope this helps.

Sounds like it's an editorial, and the Times has the right to print its opinion on matters in its own paper. You may disagree with it, but that's not the issue. You still have the chance to write a letter to the editor, or submit a column to the op-ed page. Everyone knows about the differences in world views. But I wouldn't call it pontificating either.
Eason Originally Answered: Do Editors of the New York TImes struggle between reality and the TImes own religious opinions?
I think this June 7 editorial is right on the mark. Students should not be disadvantaged by limiting their educational opportunities. June 7, 2008 Editorial The Cons of Creationism When it comes to science, creationists tend to struggle with reality. They believe, after all, that evolution by means of natural selection is false and that Earth is only a few thousand years old. They also believe that students who are taught a creationist view of biology — or who are taught to disregard the Darwinist view — are not being disadvantaged. The Texas State Board of Education is again considering a science curriculum that teaches the “strengths and weaknesses” of evolution, setting an example that several other states are likely to follow. This is code for teaching creationism. It has the advantage of sounding more balanced than teaching “intelligent design,” which the courts have consistently banned from science classrooms. It has the disadvantage of being nonsense. The chairman of the Texas board, a dentist named Don McLeroy, advocates the “strengths and weaknesses” approach, as does a near majority of the board. The system accommodates what Dr. McLeroy calls two systems of science, creationist and “naturalist.” The trouble is, a creationist system of science is not science at all. It is faith. All science is “naturalist” to the extent that it tries to understand the laws of nature and the character of the universe on their own terms, without reference to a divine creator. Every student who hopes to understand the scientific reality of life will sooner or later need to accept the elegant truth of evolution as it has itself evolved since it was first postulated by Darwin. If the creationist view prevails in Texas, students interested in learning how science really works and what scientists really understand about life will first have to overcome the handicap of their own education. Scientists are always probing the strengths and weakness of their hypotheses. That is the very nature of the enterprise. But evolution is no longer a hypothesis. It is a theory rigorously supported by abundant evidence. The weaknesses that creationists hope to teach as a way of refuting evolution are themselves antiquated, long since filed away as solved. The religious faith underlying creationism has a place, in church and social studies courses. Science belongs in science classrooms.
