True, Cathy, but it's now big business and instead of just the odd
snake oil salesman, it's every facet of medical treatment - or so it
seems to me.  I keep wondering what happened to that old Hypocratic
oath........realizing, of course, that those with more resources have
always had access to better treatment, but still.  I can remember
when doctors actually spent some time with you and seemed to have
some interest; now that seems to be unusual.  I can also remember
going to the doctor when they seemed more interested in what was
ailing you than what insurance you had.
