Sawbones: A Marital Tour of Misguided Medicine: Systemic Racism in Medical Honors

AOA is a medical honors society that's supposed to separate top-tier medical students from the rest of the pack. It helps determine which doctors get the top jobs in the most competitive fields. The problem? There's implicit racism in the way it chooses members, and fixing it may be a massive challenge.

Friends at the Table: PARTIZAN 21: Millennium Break: We Will Take Hold of the Loom of History!

Any outrageous idea exists on one side or the other of a line drawn through history. On the near side is where most fall. However potent the seed, it dies on the vine thanks to the infertile soil of common sense, the harsh encumbrance of daily life, and the long drought, which leaves young thoughts unnourished and immature. But eventually, when the drought has lasted so long as to become dry fire, when the routines of the day become so heavy as to ruin the ground as we carry them across the dirt, outrageous ideas take on new character. When we say that a notion is 'so crazy that it might just work' what we are really intimating is that only the outrageous holds opportunity. This experiment of ours is one such opportunity.

Rude Tales of Magic: Mountaintop (with special guest star Brennan Lee Mulligan)

"Regarding that principle, the Buddha often said to the bhikùus, “You should know that the Dharma which I speak is like a raft. The raft is used to cross the sea of suffering — birth and death. Before you have ended birth and death, you use the raft in cultivation. Once you have ended birth and death, you should put the raft aside. If you do not put the raft aside you have an attachment." -The Diamond Sutra
