How Medicine Used to Be

With all the debate over the Affordable Care Act (I refuse to call it "O........" primarily because if I recall, Michele the Facist nut from Minnesota coined the phrase when it was being debated) I thought it appropriate to post a tribute to how medicine used to be, by W. Eugene Smith, one of my two favorite photographers. The other one, by the way, is Walker Evans and if you've never read "Let Us Now Praise Famous Men," by Evans and James Agee, I recommend it, it's about that 47 percent, except back in the mid-30s.
