This from MedicinePlus website (I am on Diagnostics and Treatment of the nervous system at the moment)
Doctors diagnose brain tumors by doing a neurologic exam and tests including an MRI, CT scan, and biopsy. Treatment options include watchful waiting, surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, and targeted therapy.
Watchful waiting? Does my health insurance cover that? And what do they charge for watchful waiting? I’m sure there is more to it than the visual I got of bored nurses looking at you and standing around. There was Waiting for Godot… Waiting for Carcinoma?
The Chinese President has been in the Seattle area this week fucking up our traffic – as if we needed help with that. Every couple of years he has to visit Microsoft in Redmond so the software giant can assist the Chinese government in jailing more of its citizens for badthink against the Party.
The Seattle mayor advised people to telecommute for work this week. Yeah, buddy, I’ll do that. Phone rings, “Yeah, Bob, I’d like a scotch and soda.” “Sure, it’ll be two days.” “Rockin’! I can’t wait!”
What an idiot. Are there even enough people who telecommute to make a difference in traffic?
