Before we go into “FDA-APPROVED DRUGS KILL A MILLION AMERICANS PER DECADE – one person every five minutes!” in detail, read the following too!

I am proud of my profession- medical – the noblest and second oldest – second in ancience only to “that…otherrrr” :-)) oldest profession!

God and society have given me the wherewithal (necessary means) to  diagnose and treat diseases / disabilities of fellow-beings (Cure  sometimes, palliate (from Latin “palliare”= to cloak) / mitigate often and comfort always!).

Yet there are times I am ashamed of revealing my profession, when some black-sheep members of my profession wilfully scheme to cheat / rob / disable / and even kill unwitting fellow-beings who submit,  nay surrender, themselves  totally – in blind / unquestioning faith – to the doctor. Healers or Killers?!

A friend of mine who went through the turmoil mentioned above asked me once, “What is the difference between lawyers and doctors?”. As I started raking my brain for all contextual sayings / proverbs / quotes / jokes, he gave me his answer, “Lawyers just rob you! Doctors rob you AND kill you!”!

Howzzat!!

No wonder Dr.George Bernard Shaw, noted Nobel Laureate playwright – ranked second only to THE one and only Bard from Stratford-upon-Avon and my role model for quick, sharp and pungent satire / repartees said through one of his characters – Jennifer Dubedat – in his play The Doctor’s Dilemma (a Must Read Masterpiece available for free download  398 KB .pdf at the following URL of Pennsylvania State University http://www2.hn.psu.edu/faculty/jmanis/gbshaw.htm) “doctors were ignorant licensed murderers!”!.

See you again in Page II of this topic!
