I spent many years performing, and this is, without a doubt, one of the best delivered lines I've witnessed.
Take a quick look, especially in light of today's events...
Dr. Young practiced medicine in Chicago’s Hyde Park community for over 60 years.
He is clinical professor of preventive medicine and community health at the University of Illinois Medical Center.
He's been a leader in public health policy and medical and social justice issues.
He served as Dr. Martin Luther King's physician when Dr. King was in Chicago.
If you freeze this video at :35, you can see Quentin standing next to him.
He served as personal physician for Studs Terkel, Mike Royko, and thousands of other grateful Chicagoans.
He was speaking at the Mad as Hell Doctors Chicago stop, (they are PNHP members)
and was recounting the events of the last six months.
The line happens early on (about 1:16), the rest is pretty damn engaging too.
It's all a good a dose of humanity for today.
And remember, as Spock once said, there are always alternatives.
IMP UPDATE FROM MAVIS:
Mad as Hell Doctors Are arriving in Washington DC tomorrow. Send them lots of encouragement and well wishes. They are fighting for the health all of us. And if you have time call the President (202-456-1111) and ask him to meet with them. President Obama turned down the Doc's request for a meeting.
