It had been a busy morning in the GI lab, and I had a taste for a well-done synthe-steak for lunch. The best one in town, in my opinion, was served in the class A doctor's dining room. In the crowded room, I spotted the chief of surgery, who waved me over to an empty seat at a corner table.
"How's it going?" I asked, as I sat down and punched my order into the telemenu. From the look on his face I shouldn't have asked.
"Awful," he grumbled, "sometimes I don't know why I stay in this lousy business."
