In this Bizarro cartoon, it seems like a doctor might have another gig on the side. A patient notices the black robe and scythe parked next to the book case in the doctor’s office. The doctor says, “These days, even doctors need to subsidize their income, Mr. Kroll.”
The medical profession is pledged to “do no harm.” Doctors work incredibly hard to save lives. And death is a constant – where there is life, there will eventually be death.
Sometimes we don’t recognize that extending life actually equates to extending dying. It all depends on where the person is in their life and health condition. Wonder what this doctor is actually doing to subsidize his income.
