#BioMarin CEO has email meltdown in his fight against ovarian cancer patient...
BioMarin pharmaceutical continues to astonish, not by their move to refuse a dying cancer patient life-saving treatment, despite the FDA's direct approval to do so, but by their CEO writing aggressive emails laced with insults and condescension.

#BioMarin CEO reveals crisis strategy in accidental "Reply-All" email. Plans to circle the wagons and wage a PR war against ovarian cancer patient...
BioMarin continues to be at the center of a crisis management nightmare as they deny a cancer patient a life-saving drug, but their strategy was unveiled as the CEO accidentally hit "reply-all" on an email, including the patient's supporters he is seeking to avoid.

#BioMarin has an ethical obligation to act in this situation:
Ethics is a principle at the core of crisis management planning for businesses. Of course, there are ethical considerations once a crisis is underway while making such decisions.

Emergency response leaves a little to be desired in form of employee response and crowd control.

Story
Introduction
I work in the fields of Texas Politics, Music, Crisis Management Planning, and Mediation.

I started in Politics at the age of 8 when my father ran for office in Odessa, Texas and have been involved in every election since.  I have worked in local, state, and national political campaigns and served 8 years as an elected member of the Democratic National Committee.

In 1993, I started working in the Texas Legislature in the office of Lt. Governor Bob Bullock.  Over the next 15 years, I worked in and around the Texas Legislature, working one legislative session as a lobbyist.

Now, in addition to consulting campaigns and working to license music, I spend much of my time focused on Crisis Management and Mediation.

Feel free to contact me with any questions or needs you may have in my fields of expertise.

Room was nice and comfortable. Shower didn't have great pressure or lasting heat, but otherwise everything was good. Best thing about the hotel was the friendly and helpful staff.

Dr. Lewis will not talk to you. He will walk in the room and out as quick as possible. If you tell the nurse, say, 3 things you want to talk with him about, he'll address 1 then dart out. The last time I needed a prescription refill it took 3 business days for them to reply to CVS where the pharmacist said they always have that problem with his office. Now I've been waiting 3 days for them to call in another prescription. The day I was last there, all attention was on the lunch that a pharmaceutical rep was bringing into the office. The only good thing about Dr. Lewis is that you can almost always get in to see him the same day. The service is so bad, though, that like me, you'll be happy to free up his schedule even more.

Excellent neighborhood coffee shop and bakery that also has great breakfast. If you try this spot you might find yourself becoming a regular even if you don't live in the neighborhood. There is always more on the menu and in the display case than I am expecting.
