Hughesair (Inflection Point)

Retired physician and air taxi operator, science writer and part time assistant professor, these editorials cover a wide range of topics. Mostly non political, mostly true, I write more from experience than from research and more from science than convention. Subjects cover medicine, Alaska aviation, economics, technology and an occasional book review. The Floatplane book is out there. I am currently working on Hippocrates a History of Medicine and Globalism. Enjoy!

Med Chest

Chest Physicians and their Thorasic Surgery counterparts, once the backbone of medical care, now displaced by Radiologists with their CT scans and needles, Cardiologists with their catheters, Pulmonologists with their respirators and Allergists with their skin tests, nonetheless remain the Super Physicians of our day. These are the long coats with a rose in the lapel or the physician who still wears a tie and does not have a stethoscope around his or her neck. If you need help, physician or patient, you would do well to find one, at least for a consultation. (Opinion)
