This past summer...I cut into a woman's head. It was my first time assisting on a neurosurgery case. Aside from having to stand up for 5 hours straight (sitting down/leaving the operating room is a sign of weakness)...anybody who has ever seen the human brain in vivo, will understand at that very moment how funny life is. A slight movement of my hand, and I could incontrovertibly erase any lawyers understanding of the 1st Amendment. Iatrogenic. Medicine is painful...all the fucking time. If you do not enjoy the pain, you will invariably leave the game. (no matter what stage you are at...pinch-hitter, Sammy Sosa...or a bench-warmer). Truthfully, we could swing the gates to the health-care profession wide-open. Its inconsequential. Medicine is a self-selecting profession. If the medical profession collectively allowed anyone with a modicum of intelligence into the field proper, 80% would likely quit. That is, they would self-select themselves out of the healthcare profession...after tasting it...even if the gates were wide-open. Law is an abstraction on reality. Medicine is reality.
