“Some Men Just Want To Watch The World Burn,” today at 12 p.m. PT (3 p.m. ET)

The title of today’s show was inspired by smoke I smelled during my morning walk. I heard at least some of the fires raging in So. Cal. this week were attributed to arson, and thought about the pure nihilism arson represents. HT to Bosch Fawstin for recalling the apt movie line from The Dark Knight!

    Glenn Greenwald on CSPAN:
    Edward Snowden, the NSA and Information Privacy

  2. During my medical training, I was exposed to govt healthcare: the VA health system. This was enough for me to know govt healthcare is and would be a disaster. There is no incentive to even decent standards of care. As a medical student, I was the primary caregiver for a handful of veterans. I drew blood, transported, and did almost all the charting. The intern managed the medical care; the senior resident (who was there on the unit 2-3 times/week) acted as the attending physician. I never once saw an attending physician on the medical floor. There was one nurse on our unit for up to 20 patients. She spent 95% of her time at the unit desk. I did the very best I could for these noble men, but I wasn’t yet trained to provide the care they should’ve received. The number of medically unsound practices I witnessed was so great I couldn’t have cataloged them. -Jim Dahl MD
