There has been an awful lot of banter lately about big pharma and its massively deep pockets. There has been more banter about how we, as doctors, may effectively climb out of said comfortable, velvet-lined receptacles of ethical ambiguity. And, from the other side, banter about how really, its the physician's personal responsibility to stay straight in a sea of crooked money. I might also add that there is a rather predictable lefty/righty leaning to the individuals sharing these points of view.
I'm not going to weigh in on the debate, because doing so would probably be rather middle-roadedly obnoxious of me, much like my last post (to which i have not yet gotten a response, might I add. Pro-life? More like Pro-crastination!) What I will say, however, is that I feel truly sorry for what happened in class today...
...which was that one person tried to fight a very unpopular battle against a particularly well-spoken professor. This blog has run afoul of said person before. Anyhow, I won't say that I wasn't part of the jeers, the malicious laughter, and the booing as she talked herself into a train wreck for the better part of 5 minutes, but I will say that I feel pretty guilty about the whole thing.
Must be losing my edge.
