SABR Mattindeed, Grumpy...that's why so many docs are quitting right now...it's not a good place to be a doctor anymore.3 hours 39 min ago
GrumpyWell, reimbursements go down but expenses go up. Markets in healthcare are fracturing into competing closed systems so volumes go down. Only solution is to run faster.4 hours 47 min ago

Grumpy70 (or more) hour work weeks are what's required to succeed in a healthcare field these days especially if you are running a small business like a physical therapy outfit.4 hours 57 min ago
SABR MattGordon - why on Earth are you pulling 70 hour workweeks? You should consider a change in career.11 hours 13 min ago
Gordon GrossBoy, do I wish I was not working 70 hour weeks and could contribute to this. Thanks for the great discussions, guys.1 day 3 hours ago
Bat571My part 3 is in the hopper. It repeats a lot of what's being dicussed in the existing threads, but I have a somewhat different take on the constraints on JackZ and their basis. Appreciate it if you could jailbreak it, Doc, and any comments are of interest. Hopefully my take adds something to the discussion.1 day 5 hours ago

jemanjiBat571 - many times this happens to me when the pic is too big, or when it's from an unfriendly source (copyright issues?). I try a smaller pic, or one from a different original source, and everything's fine. … I've got a Q in to the boss on it. Thanks for your material! :- ) Jeff2 days 59 min ago
mojicianThat story is awesome Moe.2 days 3 hours ago
moethedogA short Giants story: Their rookie BU catcher, Andrew Susac, is the grandson of a good friend of mine, a city counsellor I served with. In mid-August Susac hit his first MLB homer, an opposite field job in Wrigley. One of my college roommates, a HUGE Giants fan, was watching the game on TV and called me to tell me.(he knew the hometown connection as he had read about it in a Giant's on-line mag) I was in Missoula dropping Bailey off at college. I called Andrew's granddad, suspecting he would be watching the game on TV. When he answered I just asked if this was the granddad of a guy who had just hit his first career homer. He said "I'm so excited that I can't breath! I think I'm floating on air!" It was one of the coolest calls I've ever made. A game in Chi-Town, a buddy in Portland, me in Missoula and a glowing granddad on the Oregon Coast = the magic of baseball (and cel phones!)!2 days 8 hours ago
mojicianThose who bet against the Giants in even numbered years end up poorer and wiser. Its not about WAR, or roster construction or who has the smarter GM or the better team. The Giants laugh at your logic. Based on that sort of thinking, the Nats or the Dodgers won the pennant. For the Giants, its about making the post season, and then "burning the other cities down, every last one of them". The Royals are Cinderella, the Giants are Vandal maurauders with trophy lust. The Giants are specialists at dispatching Cinderella teams from Missouri. Giants in 5. In a week's time, remember where you heard that. :)2 days 9 hours ago

Bat571Hey, Doc or KLAT admin guys - my uploaded picture doesn't seem to show in the front page tile view. I changed it twice, and it does show up on the article page, but, did I do something wrong (.png is O.K., right?) or what?3 days 4 hours ago
Bat571Taijuan's Mom has had cancer - I suspect he just wants to be with family. But I hope his Mom has not taken a turn for the worse.3 days 11 hours ago
