The Plain Dealer from Cleveland, Ohio (2024)

The Plain Dealer Monday, PEOPLE'S PHARMACY Common pain JOE GRAEDON AND TERESA GRAEDON For about six months, I took ibuprofen on a regular basis to prevent muscle aches from my exercise program. During this time, I had many blank thoughts and feared I might be in the early stage of Alzheimer's disease. Then I checked my nurses' drug manual and found that ibuprofen can have cognitive effects. Stopping the medication improved my mental status. I know the medication is effective for many people, but I would like to alert others to this possibility.

"I came up with that funny walk of his, and I had to invent an accent for him. If I would've tried to talk Chinese, it would've seemed ridiculous." In the documentary that accompanies the recently released DVD boxed set, "Kung Fu: The Complete First Season," the makers of the show describe his demeanor at an audition as "between uncommunicative and belligerent." Perfect for Caine and the warrior code he embodied.

"After 'Kung I walked away and started financing my own movies, even if I didn't have the money to really do it." But Carradine never left kung fu.
