"Call before digging."

I swear, I know what each of those words mean individually (MARTA is the local metropolitan transit system), but I'm kind of at a loss for what it all means aggregately, in this context.

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.
