One of the medical practices that have allowed quacks like Doctor X to continue to kill and maim their patients is a practice enshrined in federal law and lobbied for by Doctors and Hospitals that prohibits release of “after-action reports” to the public or other Doctors. These “after-action reports” are reviews by Hospitals and Doctors of a botched procedure which include recommendations on how to avoid repeats. Hospitals and Doctors have brought the Doctor X problem on themselves. If some injured patient of Doctor X is able somehow to find out the identity of one or more of the sniveling cowards who covered up Doctor X’s malpractice by omission, the patient should be able to sue the coward for allowing Doctor X to continue his butchery.p>The patient is hurt in body and mind. Doctor X might be hurt in reputation. Who would the cowards rather face? Their cowardice is not about lawsuits, it is about the good-old-boy “protection” Doctors provide each other. Until “after-action reports” on botched procedures are required by law to be released to the public, the good-old-boy protection racket will continue and patients will continue to be butchered and maimed by quacks and frauds like Doctor X. br> — John Gridley
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
