if it weren't for lawyer

Right now, everyone is fawning over the health care workers so this may be a hard sell.

But, in normal times, the only protection a person has against MD (etc) is the lawyers. They are as bad as that "thin blue line" of silence from police officers not ratting out other officers who commit crimes (or let them go on driving drunk - a common-ish one).

And they lawyers - sure for money - are also the closest thing you have to a chance-in-hell if a giant corporation decides to screw you. Naturally, after consulting their lawyers.


It so often comes back to that famous line in the Pogo comic strip of days gone by:
"We have met the enemy and he is us"*
