Of the last four people I know who had hospital surgeries,
three of them died from post-op complications.
Those types of statistics prejudice me against health care.
You know. The cure is more deadly than the disease.
I blame it on small specialized boxes
and an inability of doctors to think outside of those boxes.
I blame it on the healthcare industrial state
and beancounters desperate to insure six figure paychecks.
I blame it on health insurance companies
because it is easy to label them the Judas Goat.
Last month was the date for my annual physical.
I found no reason to go.
