Elephant Soars Over

By yours truly, but based on a design by old acquaintance Andy Lee of PaperBrush Studios ( http://www.findandy.com/ ) who still does it way better and isn't limited to whiteboard markers.

Dear God, why?

This is the very symbol of what's totally and completely wrong with the US healthcare system.

I wish it was easier to explain. At the ultimate core, however, is a horrendous layer of bureaucracy designed to obscure unconcionable greed and criminal irresponsibility with other people's money. Just like with the subprime/mortgage/credit/cds meltdown.

Same disease, different symptom.

This little toy bear, promoting commercial (and expensive) copies of the volumes and volumes of codes (typically bought with huge wads of Other People's Money) necessary to complete a form so that a doctor can get reimbursed for service (from a private stockpile of Other People's Money and/or a dwindling supply of government funds), symbolizes it all by its very presence, by the necessity that brings it into being.

Missing from this picture: the smell of bad hotdogs

Screw "skymiles". I want a discount on future tickets for every time I check a bag, every time I go through a security checkpoint (including bonuses for every article of clothing I have to remove that doesn't involve sleeping, sex, showering, swimming, or the stage), every meal I eat in an airport concourse, every harmless tool or toy I have to check in my bags or leave at home, every hour spent waiting to board, every fifteen minutes on the plane when it's not going anywhere, and every hour spent separated from a lost bag or traveling companion.

I'd have to back my chair up through the wall into the next suite in order to get the old blue gumdrop iMac in the picture on the left, plus I'm taking the picture with the "console" that'd be cropped out on the the lower right anyway. The angle's wrong for showing the Sea-Monkey® aquarium and the candy dish.

Also you can't see the pipe organ pedals under the desk.
