The Fierce Triumph of Loneliness
"A paired life is not an aspirational state, but a compromised one. Loneliness is not the terror we escape; it is instead the reward we give up when we believe something else to be worth the sacrifice."

Medical students need to be quizzed, but ‘pimping’ isn’t effective
"Continuing to include pimping as part of evaluating medical students does not reward them for learning. Instead, it punishes them for doing so by highlighting what they did not know, and uses that lapse to represent their clinical performance more broadly."

Gene Wilder Was Right: Gilda Radner Didn’t Have To Die, And We Need To Talk About Why She Did
Radner's ovarian cancer diagnosis, which eventually killed her at age 42, was delayed despite symptoms of vaginal bleeding, weight loss, pelvic pain, and infertility because of what sounds like misattribution to anxiety, depression, constipation, viral infection, and so on and so forth. It's easier to blame the individual doctors responsible, but the underlying problem is unconscious bias against gender medicine
