    HW talking of “high moral principles” is true irony! There is presently a huge movement to turn America around (Medicine included!) from the decades long depths of execrable “government” (control). An example of such control is shown in this 1st person account of the CalFires. KOM, you brought it up…

    Don’t forget this anti-reg president passed the first of many regs that killed small business for doctors. In office simple labs didn’t used to have draconian regs making them finacially unviable. I heard at the time it started with 60 Minutes going after the pap smear mills, but I bet “Big Lab” and “Big Insurance” was in the back rooms.
