A Good Start

The Nonprofiteer reports with delight that Eric Keroack has stepped down as head of the federal Office of Family Planning.  Keroack (I won’t call him "Doctor" because he’s always been ready to put ideology above medical science in his treatment of women, and because there’s reason to believe his medical license is now in jeopardy) is under investigation for Medicaid irregularities connected to his private practice.

Faithful readers of this blog will recall its exhortation that they protest Keroack’s appointment in hopes of securing his removal.  Rarely are our wishes gratified so beautifully.

As for the title of this posting, it echoes the old joke: "What do you call 3,000 lawyers drowned in the ocean?"  "A good start."

    And what would you call it if the rest were drowned in the ocean? Anarchy.

    Gene, So good to hear from you–I wondered where you’d gone. Listen, I agree with you and Shakespeare that the lawyers are what stand between us and tyranny (which is why the Bard’s plotters are going to kill all the lawyers first). I like lawyers; I am one myself. But I mentioned them only by way of analogy, and should have followed my instincts and used the word “Republicans” instead.
