Amen, Bill! I was looking for a non-hospital-based primary care doc not long ago and found one near my home that was recommended. Then I found out they charge you a $100-150 “membership fee” per year (not something insurance covers) just for the privilege of seeing their staff – even though we all have copays and deductibles and shit already…

Alrighty folks it’s in the 60s and raining here, like Mother Earth looked at the calendar and went “okay people you wanted fall, here you go!” And with that, the focus slowly turns indoors and thinking about the shorter days and longer nights that are creeping in slowly but surely.
