The day a doctor is told what tests he/she is allowed to run by someone wearing a suit and calculator is the day we should all start asking ourselves, “Who is John Galt?” Ayn Rand, I’d like to think you’re turning over in your grave to watch our country wither from within. The engineers who work todilute everything that made America strong have taken over without firing a single shot. Dollars and power now take precedence over human value.
As a writer of medical fiction, I wonder if future generations will pick up my book and wonder what a surgeon or an ER doc is. I suddenly feel as irrelevant as Charity Doc now feels.
Charity, you don’t know me from Adam, but I’ll miss you. Worse, yet, your patients will miss you. Thank you for touching my life with your humor, pain and wit.
