Yes. On that note, my next post (almost done) will continue working that theme.

Being "subversive" is fun sometimes.

It gets downright motivational, don't you think?

Thanks for the kind words, Dale, but I'm not sorry.

Kevin's stuck-up act makes me sick. And as "disruptive" as doctors these days can be (we could talk all day about the reasons for that), Mr. Levy does not seem to be willing to admit that there might be something very wrong in his own backyard. Moreover, medGadget is passing out much-ballyhooed awards based on an online poll whose methodology (given the results) is just a little bit suspect.

medGadget more than made my point about "Big Brother" when they deleted my response to Mr. Levy and banned me. God bless America.

I see ominous trends in the medical blogosphere . . . a kind of "corporate take-over" of the medium . . . very similar to what happened when doctors handed the management of their practices over to people in suits. We all know how that turned out.

On a much larger scale, the corporatization of blogging actually started with the bold and bogus "citizen journalism" touted a few years back by newspapers (something I bought into). Editors like John Robinson obviously thought by diving in (and aligning themselves with established bloggers) that they could control and shape the dialogue.

Now, all these blogs are up . . . with alternative points of views (and stories withheld from the masses to serve one special interest or another) . . . but our mainstream newspapers aren't really hearing what people are saying. They've treated everyone but their "most-favoreds" with derision and scorn. That's why circulation is down. Ordinary people are disgusted with the status quo . . . sick of "namby-pamby" . . . weary of obvious biases & agendas . . . and tired of journalists sitting on the fence. And it's why Ed Cone is "out".

If Kevin and medGadget continue down the same path, they will get the same results. I'm not real worried about it. And I'll keep pouring tea in the harbor.

You advice is duly noted. I am working on it.

I don't much care for award shows either. Sorry about being banned. I really believe you should put your story in book form thereby being able to reach many more people and maybe make a little money besides. You are a gifted writer and you have a passion and a good story that should be told. Blogging reaches a few hundred people. Writing can reach thousands.
