Out of the Blue

Had an Abbott and Costello moment this morning after MrsBlue emailed the sysadmin at work to get a password for the laptop she brought home for the weekend. I've changed his name and adjective to avoid a cybersecurity fail:

MrsBlue: Jim Rocks! Blue: He wrote you back?
MrsBlue: Yup. Blue: What was your password?
MrsBlue: Jim Rocks. Blue: Yeah, he got back to you fast. So what was it?
MrsBlue: Jim Rocks. Blue: Why are you...? Oh. Your password is "Jim Rocks?"
MrsBlue: How many times do you need me to tell you that? Blue: Who's on first?

Rockin' Links: Thanks Ant.

I still think the lower life expectancy (since this is a discussion I've seen pop up on websites multiple times in the past few years) is due to hospitals taking a more McDonalds style approach to healthcare and people getting sicker and needing better care due to the increasing stress and burden of modern American life.

Me and a good portion of my family work in the healthcare industry in one form or another, and from what I/they have seen, it's all about working to get more benefits and money from the government and moving your press ganey scores up so the director can buy another yacht, not actually getting new tech or attracting competent docs.

The hospital I first worked in was a major player in my state at one time, but not anymore. Got bought out by a bigger network. I know when I worked there they kept cutting nursing staff until they eventually only had one tech on in the entire ER and as the ER flooded with patients every night needing rooms, a guy died of a heart attack while waiting and the board of health came in and almost shut them down. They had an ant infestation in the ER they never took care of either. Would crawl out of the walls. Place was an absolute dump and I left to go to another hospital, which is better, but still far from acceptable.

They just want to make money off of you(r insurance company). It's just about money and getting government assistance, not helping the sick.

And people are sicker than ever because we're all coping with a world that is F'ed up beyond belief.
