What part of *immunity* do these self-appointed Wile E Coyote Super Geniuses not get?

Unfortunately this is not a new illness.

Several years ago at the local medical society meeting, the big discussion was about malpractice insurance rates and how tort lawyers were trying to bankrupt the system*. Then one old surgeon stood up and "reprimanded" us for worrying about malpractice suits. Then he went on to talk about how he had been practicing medicine for almost 50 years and had never been sued. I was about to stand up and rebuke the old geezer but I didn't want to embarrass him. Instead I just felt embarrassed for him. He had forgotten that his entire career was either in the military or at the state teaching hospital. He had immunity his entire career.


*Louisiana was one of the first to place a cap on "pain and suffering"
