Ovation. Standing. Watch. Listen. (Ignore a couple of F-bombs.) Be thrilled. Look beyond.


  1. That same fellow -- I recognize his voice, but don't know his name -- has another clip somewhere on the internet in which he relays an argument he had with a new age woman over alternative medicine. It's lighter hearted and funny. The line that stands out is, "There's a name for the drugs and procedures that have actually been proved to work -- medicine."

  2. Nice to hear from you, Sam. I like that line, too, and have even used it here (or maybe it was on Surgeonsblog)

  3. Thank you, thank you. It's great to be back.

    I checked your link and saw that you did indeed use the same line. And apparently I read it, because I commented on it. In that comment I praised a doctor who turned out not to be quite what we were told to expect. Fortunately, the wife apparently healed herself, or lost interest with her "symptoms," or gave up trying to find a doctor that would sympathize with her. In my youth I fantasized about having a harem of wives. Now, well, I'm not so sure about that. Maybe you guys will come out with a gay pill someday.

    When I saw this cartoon on xkcd I thought of you and meant to pass on the link. I was amused just now to see that you found it on your own.

    So my neighbor Mr. Rossi lost again, and didn't demand so much as one recount. 1098 seemed a good piece of legislation, sorry to see it trounced, and more sorry to know that it was trounced by the very people who should have voted for it.

    Glad you're still enjoying the blogging.
