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!

Medicine

 Question, what one thing could have the greatest benefit in both improving patient care and reducing the cost of medical care.

  • Return to an after hours call system for physicians
  • Mandatory autopsy for all hospital deaths
  • Wave confidentiality and return to bedside rounds and nursing care
  • Study the European health care systems
  • Curtail the monopoly and anti trust activity of the American Hospital Association 
  • Restore pharmaceutical purity and safety standards
  • End the rebranding of commonly prescribed drugs in order to extend the patent expiration date.
