Waiting Times

Robert Farley wrestles with the horrors of socialized medicine:

So, after a year of trying to make my cholesterol problem go away by ignoring it, I decide to finally get my prescription of Zetia refilled. I call up the clinic to ask about a refill, and get told that I have to go and see the doctor again. This isn't terribly surprising to me, so I go ahead and schedule an appointment. Unfortunately, the first appointment available is in two months. Fine; I just hope that I don't have a heart attack between now and then.



Oh. Wait. That happened right here in the United States of America. Waiting for appointments -- can you imagine? The horror, the horror.
