There is no price that can be placed on having coworkers you like, a good boss, and interesting labor.
Would you trade all that for just more money?
Since I’ll now be writing about bands other than my One True Love, Girls Don’t Cry, I thought it best to add a Bands category. Otherwise everything will get mixed (no pun intended) under the Music category.
And notices such as this really do belong under a Blog Notes category instead of Stuff.
I’ll add the new categories to relevant past posts during the week…
On October 1st 1890, William B. Coley, a young bone surgeon barely two years out of medical school, saw one of his first patients in private practice at the New York Memorial Hospital. Although he’d only finished his residency earlier the same year, he’d already gained a good reputation and many considered him a rising star of the New York surgical scene.
The seventeen year old patient had a painful, rapidly growing lump on the back of her right hand. She had pinched the unlucky appendage between two railway carriage seats on a transcontinental trip to Alaska some months before, and when the bruise failed to heal she assumed the injury had become infected. However the bruise turned into a bulge, the pain steadily worsened, and her baffled doctors were eventually compelled to call for Dr. Coley. As a surgical man, Coley would never have guessed that this innocuous referral would take his career in a totally new direction– into an unusual branch of medicine now known as cancer immunotherapy.
