Happy July 4th

Here’s a photo of fireworks from our Disneyland trip, taken from near the Big Thunder Mountain ride.
Happy 4th of July!
Notably, Disney has a new way of launching their fireworks, and they’re giving the patents away. Makes for interesting reading.

Semper Fi from the NEJM

NEJM — Semper Fi

An account of a few of the challenges of being a doctor for the USMC.

I was lucky, in that I didn’t work with recruits, just really green boots when they came to the Battallion. As an Intern I saw a few on my ED rotation, who had stated suicidality as a way to get out of basic training. (They got out).

I never had to do anything near this hard, and now don’t think I’d survive.
