    Open up the cabinet and rummage around for something to take the edge off, doc.

    Get the point?

    Got it. Thanks.

    Spill the beans...how many pages was the PM you got from DNF explaining to you why he became a doctor, what he got on his MSATs, his favorite professors, the time Suzie Hassenfeffer puked during a cadaver disection and other zany med-school anecdotes? Did you let your new PM buddy down gently and explain that your "question" was actually you making the point that doctors are here to serve mankind and shouldn't be allowed to make too much money?

    I believe doctors shouldn't make any more then your average assembly line worker down at the broom factory.

    None. Other than Chris, Vicky, and another guy here in NM, my inbox is filled with messages from the right-wing fringe element here on PP. Even a couple from you. The latest is a question about ice-fishing from RK. He never responded to my last reply.

    Nothing from the more measured, thoughtful element, except one from Henry, and I remember one from Joe S. a long time ago. Probably my fault.

    I imagine the motivation to enter medicine is as widely varied as with other professions. Don't you?

    My question was specific to Dave. He chose not to respond. I don't care enough to bug him about it.

    Are you a socialist? Or, is that just your way of saying you'd like to be paid better?

Then DNF says, "Gee, JDog, thanks for reminding me of what's really important!"
    Hew:
    Glad to see you still have the same amount of class as the last time I visited this wasteland called POTUS

    I did not mean to snub JD at all. I just figured Hew would (and he did) answer for everyone else, since he seems to be all-knowing.

    I do know that I started working in oil refineries in Baytown in highschool, never dreaming of going to medical school. After my first daughter was born and I started paying attention to night classes and my grades improved, I started to get a crazy idea. Thankfully, I had parents who encouraged me to pursue my goals, no matter how crazy they were.

    If money were the prime motivator, I would have a JD or MBA right now, and been working and earning a living for the past 15 years, instead of school and residency and fellowships, that have just allowed me to hold a real job since 2007. Who knows, I might even have some orange ribbons hanging around here somewhere by now? From the general tone of some of these posts I doubt those authors will understand this, but there is something very gratifying about helping people in their times of need. It is a privelage I cherish. Would I still do it if I got paid the same as Hoosier's factory worker? Depends on if they're union or not.

    Hoosier, careful what you eat. It sounds like you've taken a bite of Hew's sandwich.

    I'm doing just fine JDog, and didn't even need to have the federal government to make things fair for me.

    Did I forget to add the rolleyes after my last post?
