As I grow more experienced in what it means to be a family physician in what is an otherwise quaternary-care environment the value of the primary care function grows all the more valuable in my eyes.

A year ago I walked right into my local Apple store and picked up an iPhone around 8 pm on release day. No line, no fuss; until I got home and tried to activate it.
Fast forward a year and a week to yesterday. My wife is in the market for the new iPhone but the line was 20 deep at 9 pm last night, and after reading about activation delays she begged off to a later day. Then when we did stop in to pick one up (again no line, no fuss), ATT squelched the deal by invoking BMG, IRU, and FAN. And if you know what those acronyms mean you've spent way too much time on the phone with ATT.
So still no iPhone and all the stores near us are out of stock.
Catastrophe? Iraq is a catastrophe. Katrina is a catastrophe.
3G iPhone activation problems? Just another...

You think you can eat a pie? Then listen to the advice of my 5' 11" son and 6'2" brother-in-law, neither one an amateur when it comes to eating: practice, practice, practice. Otherwise you'll suffer the same disgrace they did when losing to the 4' 8" ultrapetit who bested them both for third place while they were daintily cleansing their palate between tastes of their Tastykakes.
