Turns out, not a whole lot of people are killed by sharks each year.
Apparently, in Florida, doctors are legally prohibited from asking if their patient owns a gun, and several states are adopting similar laws. I’m personally not a fan of this move, since it inhibits counseling about health-related issues. The proponents of it seem to have a paranoid delusion that doctors asking about guns somehow leads to… I dunno. The government taking away firearms? It seems like a reach to me, but, like any other topic, I’ll be happy to entertain any comments about it.
Dr. Bart Kummer, a gastroenterologist at New York University Medical Center, says he always asks his patients about guns.
“It’s part of reducing risks, and taking a view of the patient as not just a GI tract that ambles in on two feet,” Kummer told me. “So I ask about seat belts, helmets, safe sex, the standard questions about alcohol, tobacco, caffeine, hours slept, hobbies—some people work with molten metal—and what the American College of Physicians has asked us to ask our patients: whether there’s a gun in their house.”

I used to live in Atlanta. These people are doing the right thing. I don’t know what the solution for parking is, but every point against huge lots that spend the majority of the time not filled isn’t it. The overall message should apply everywhere:
Let’s treat parking as though it is our ugly, smelly garbage. Let’s bury it, hide it, deck it, camoflauge it. Let’s do anything other than letting it spread over our city’s blocks like the plague.
