    My GP is often behind and all his patients know that they may have to wait. I bring my tablet, but there are magazines and computers in the waiting room. I have posted comments on Daily Kos from those computers on more than one occasion. There are only three doctors in the practice, two MDs and a DO, and they're all partners, so they can pretty much do as they please with respect to length of patient visit and taking extra time if it's needed. Another thing they can (and did) do is decide to take Medicaid as well as Medicare patients in addition to private or group insurance and self-pays. It's not a practice where any doc expects to get rich. They all seem more interested in doing good than in doing well.

    Why are war casualty counts "American troops" and "others" but never "human beings"?
