Wolf and Scherz Double Treat

Two of my favorite physician-writers both published good OpEds recently:

Dr. Milton Wolf, Washington Times, "I'm exactly what's wrong with Barack Obama's America", 9/2/2011.

Ayn Rand once identified "the sanction of the victim" as the method by which bad guys kept exploiting the good guys:
The "sanction of the victim" is the willingness of the good to suffer at the hands of the evil, to accept the role of sacrificial victim for the "sin" of creating values.
It's nice to see some value-producing Americans decide to start withdrawing that sanction!

Hal Scherz of D4PC, Physicians News, 9/2011, "Doctors Will Remain A Target Until They Wake Up".

Let's hope American doctors (and patients) heed his warnings before it's too late.
