Another Authentic Doc

This came from a fellow doc.   He is a real authentic one.

I thought you might like knowing how I managed to make it thru the rigors of medical school (1958-1962.) It was my “Placebo Journal” at the time….cartoons that let me vent my spleen and stay sane. I’m attaching a video that was made for my 50th medical school reunion this October that shows some of the multitude of cartoons I drew.

I love it.  I so appreciate when our elder doctors are given some attention.  Please feel free to send me some of your examples.

GREAT JOB DR. BLAKEY!  You can reach him at  [email protected]

    Dr Blakey graduated from the University of Florida College of Medicine amongst highly suspect company, having been a classmate of my father’s. I have met him a few times and saw, and learned from old tales told that his wit was not confined to pencil and paper. Great piece, thanks Doug.
