Meet your Medical Mole
Not to toot my own horn, but I've been accepted to medical school for next August. :)
Anywho, I'd like to make a regular feature out of my experience as a student, at least to the extent that any of it relates to politics. More to come on that later.
For now, a quick anecdote about Occupy NOLA and a nearby homeless clinic that I volunteer at.
Had two patients from Occupy today. Both homeless. One of them chronically so; he's a regular patient who's been sleeping out there, but I didn't find this out until the end of the visit when he mentioned the Park out by the Library.
Me: You mean the Occupy camp, right?
Him: Yeah, but I don't agree with them.
Me: .....why not?
Him: Well, I don't really know what they're trying to do, and they're just a bunch of homeless people and alcoholics!
Me: *triple facepalm*
Suddenly I recall my Sociology professor's odd-sounding insistence that inequality is supported by those at the top and the bottom.
God bless America.
