Facts & Humor

All the facts are straight. Some of the humor is twisted.

All Here

This site contains everything I've written that is available to the public online (as well as a few pieces that aren't)


There's a wide variety of topics and tones. Have fun. Get serious. I hope you learn something.

Where is my work...

What’s in my doctor bag?

Reading most health care material is like having a colonoscopy. Sure it gives you plenty of important information, but that doesn't make it any easier to sit through. I believe complex medical issues can be understood by the public without being Sesame Street simple or droning on and on like a Kenny G anthology. I think humor and health do mix, and that taking death and disease seriously is different from taking yourself seriously.
