42:18 – The Doctor’s Wife (1953) extols the virtues of Ex Lax as part of our meditation on illness and medicine.  Dire diagnoses!  Sickening side effects!  Weird dreams and witchcraft by e-mail!  Hairy feet as the key to health!  All part of a general rumination on the limbo long term sickness can leave us in!

    I enjoyed your update as well as the Ex-Lax programming. Ex-Lax is still around here, although I don’t use it when nature forgets. I prefer Miralax™ for those forgetful moments. Glad to hear that your numbers that were too high are coming down and that you are feeling improved. Hopefully, we can fix our broken healthcare system one day soon, but we face the challenge of changing a huge section of our economy to do so. Those people have lots of money and our politics are far too wrapped up in money to escape their influence. Our last attempt was a strange hybrid which tried to make not having healthcare a finable offence while keeping the for-profit insurance companies in the loop with tax-payer guaranteed profits. It must be all or nothing to work. I don’t believe that healthcare can ever be run properly by for-profit companies. When they are not only for-profit but also shareholder based corporations they end up with a legal responsibility that goes directly against the best interests of patients. It should be one of our most important goals as a society, but we seem to put quarterly profits before human welfare.
