The polls have closed and all the votes have been counted.
Without question, in a year of the passage of the most radical reform in American health care since the Medicare act, the number one issue on the minds of health care workers is – hold the drum roll – food.
Salary, benefits, work conditions, and even the foremost of all issues, parking, all take a second seat to food: the fuel, the nutrients, the comfort, the indigestion.
I am a bit surprised that comments about the initial food blog did not include defenders of the traditional fare eaten by hospital employees.
No defense of the hidden benefits of transfats or the delight in eating a cheese burger in 24 seconds; no cry to maintain high body mass just in case of famine or being left abandoned for days on the Lodge service drive.
No claim that the combination of white flour, cheese, pepperoni and tomato sauce actually promotes vascular health.
