I'm Not Dead Yet (I Don't Want to Go in the Cart....)
Here's a great cartoon from artist Tom Toles, published in today's Washington Post.
The health care system IS tired, and sick - but luckily for us the illness isn't terminal.
Our medical-system-metaphor-guy is still sitting upright, breathing, and presumably speaking, so he'd hold up pretty well in triage.
It's only once the history & physical starts that we see fault lines under the surface.
So which side do you want to be on - the implacable doc or the hypochondriac splayed on the table?
