Let Your Voice Be Heard


Though not scientific, I thought it would be interesting to poll readers to see who they would select if the presidential election were held today.

Also, I thought it would be interesting to see which way people are leaning toward the parties expected to place a nominee up for election in 2016.

The poll runs through Sunday, July 26, at 6 p.m. (PT). Results will be tabulated and released on Monday, July 27.

To vote go to: Cornfield to Desert Polls (http://fromthecornfield.com/polls)

From the Cornfield, while the results have no bearing on what will occur in November, 2016, this is just a fun exercise and will be intriguing to learn how people are thinking at this early stage.

I am Mark Ivy, a born and bred Hoosier.
I am father to two wonderful sons, Dave and Kev, of whom I am very proud;
two terrific daughters-in-law, Anna and Hailey; three beautiful granddaughters, Dylan, Alaina and Amelia.

On May 9, 2017, my lung specialist hit me with the news I had maybe six months to live if the chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), the damage caused by the histoplasmosis described below, ran its normal course. I am now on hospice at home. Content and ready to cross over the river to the other side.

On September 2, 2014, I was diagnosed with disseminated histoplasmosis, a fungal infection, discovered by a biopsy of my larynx.
The infection is fatal if left untreated. For 2 1/2 years I lived under a death sentence being misdiagnosed
with a non-specific bacterial infection which left my right lung a “dried up sponge” and non-functioning.
I was aggressively treated for the infection with antifungals.
The treatment ended October of 2015 and fortunately did not take two years.

I suffer from chronic Horton’s Syndrome. The effects vary widely causing various problems.
Statistically, Horton’s affects only 0.1% of the population. Major depression also attacks me regularly.
