And now a rare piece of news that is not about COVID-19:

On March 25, 1942, the Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin, was born. I know for me, it’s just about impossible to pick a favorite record, I mean, think of the choices: Unforgettable: A Tribute to Dinah Washington, Songs of Faith, I Never Loved a Man the Way I Love You, Lady Soul, Aretha Now, Soul ’69, Live at Fillmore West

This morning we are all blasting Aretha’s Gold, her awesome first compilation album released by Atlantic back in 1969. We thought it would be fun to reimagine this track list as medically-related songs. Do you have a favorite Aretha song you’d like medically retitled? Let us know! In the meantime, ask your hospital administration to blast some Aretha on the overhead speakers today!

    First there was Dr. 01, the first robot physician, created to withstand toxic levels of burnout in an increasingly mechanistic and impossibly demanding healthcare field. Dr. 99 builds upon the advances of its ninety-eight predecessors by phasing out all human emotion, innovation, and creativity completely, and focusing solely on pre-programmed protocols and volume-based productivity. In its spare time, Dr. 99 enjoys writing for Gomerblog and listening to Taylor Swift.
