THE AMERICAN MEDICAL MACHINE

What a drag. The same old issues, the same old case histories, the same old American Medical Association, the same old liberal concerns, the same old preachments, the same old Blue Cross, the same old doctor shortage, the same old hospital overcrowding, the same old economic discrimination, the same old hypocritical oath, the same old bedpans, the same old debate lamely nursed along. Abe Ribicoff (D. Conn.) stared down Mayor Daley at Chicago in 1968 and we are all grateful. He has twice nominated George McGovern for the presidency for which we applaud his consistency. He has been a faithful public servant over the years, a laudable feat. But this is the same old gauze and defect syndrome.
