Thoughts on Pirates...

I was off the coast of Somalia last year involved in some anti-piracy operations... if they can be called that.

My thoughts on the current situation?

When seconds count, the Navy is only hours away. Maybe it's time to start arming our merchants.

Presley O'Bannon, Stephen Decatur, and William Bainbridge must be spinning in their graves. Does anyone remember what " the shores of Tripoli" meant?

Sam's Club Practice?

Well maybe not Sam's Club exactly...

I saw an ad in the Sunday paper by a local internist. For the "price of a daily cup of gourmet coffee" you could become an exclusive member of his practice and receive exceptional access and good, old fashioned personalized care. He announced that he was currently interviewing patients.

It's an interesting idea. I wonder how many people are going to take him up on it. What exactly he is offering. And, what his criteria for acceptance into his practice are. I'll keep an eye on it. Any thoughts?
