(fm the BC thread "Doctors Frank and Stein")
Thank you for the contributions that you and other practitioners of the healing arts bring to our discussions. Your point about our absolute lack of sure defenses is well taken. My point was simply that we are relatively better off to either prepare or respond than people in less developed societies. Therefor the results of such pandemics should be a transfer of even greater power to what would be the increasing proportion of humanity in wealthier countries.
Thank you for calling me an optimist. When facing the Apocalypse I can think of no demeanor that makes as much sense as one of good cheer.
Why do doctors and lawyers expect us to pay them when they attend to their practice? Why don't we ever get to see them after they learn to do it right and stop having to practice?
