The Passing Parade: Cheap Shots from a Drive By Mind

"...difficile est saturam non scribere. Nam quis iniquae tam patiens urbis, tam ferreus, ut teneat se..." " is hard not to write Satire. For who is so tolerant of the unjust City, so steeled, that he can restrain himself... Juvenal, The Satires (1.30-32)

THE PATIENT REFUSED AUTOPSY: actual line from medical chart.

Not enough corpses are refusing autopsies these days, but that is just my opinion. No sooner is your typical corpse adjusting to his brand new cadaverous condition than the people who were supposed to keep things from getting to such a pretty pass are all keen to cut him up to see what they did wrong. That they want to correct such mistakes in the future is all very well and good, but it hardly does anything for the poor schnook they’re hot to disassemble, does it?
