New AAFP President Coming In

Yes, it is that time of year again.  The AAFP has a new incoming president and his name is John Meigs, M.D. You can read most of what he says here but basically over the next year the will supposedly tackle the tough issues facing family physicians, including pay, administrative burdens and opioid abuse.

My thoughts?  He would have done better reciting lyrics from the song Once In A Lifetime by the Talking Heads:

And you may ask yourself
What is that beautiful house? (substitute: What is this terrible job?)
And you may ask yourself
Where does that highway go to? (substitute: Why did I sign that contract?)
And you may ask yourself
Am I right?…Am I wrong?
And you may say to yourself yourself
My God!…What have I done?!

Then the audience could have come in with the chorus:

Same as it ever was…
Same as it ever was…
Same as it ever was…
Same as it ever was…
Same as it ever was…
Same as it ever was…
Same as it ever was…
Same as it ever was…

Wouldn’t that have been more fun? And true?
