Daddy went on house calls everyday after office hours. I received a comic book to go along and open his patient's gates and the gates on his farms. Mother said this was how I learned
to read. :)
In this ever-progressive world of ours, we’ve come to love this paradox: the more enlightened we are, the less we can determine for ourselves. The less we can think for ourselves, the more the government does for us. The more the government does for us, the more control they have over us, and the less we have to decide. The more government controls, the more government we need. And in this way, as the Gospel of St Marx says, the state shall pass away and all will be at peace.
It’s only those stubbornly rebellious hold-outs that need to be brought to heel, er…brought into compliance first. One independent apple, operating by their own conscience, spoils the whole statist utopia. He must be made to care…and made to comply.

PS from my Sister Anne and I had forgotten about this." If he still has his facilities, what a terrible lose for his patients. You know Daddy retired because of all of the government demands."
