Doctoring

Posted by: Hammer / 9:40 AM

From Assymetrical Information:
Doctors, I love you guys. I think you do one of the most important jobs in the world, and take a lot of crap for it. Being a doctor combines two things I really dislike -- hard science, and listening to people complain -- and I'm grateful to every single one of you for undertaking this thankless job. I want to save you from trial lawyers. But I also want to save you from yourselves. I just don't think pushing medical residents to the breaking point is good either for them, or their patients.

So which doctors will accept the construction of the following system: most planes will be flown by pilots working 24 hour shifts, averaging a total of 80 hours a week. There will be an "attending" pilot who works much shorter shifts, and is "on call", asleep in first class, should the plane run into some problems. Passengers will, of course, have no way of knowing whether their pilot is on hour 1 or hour 16 of his shift when they board the plane.

Note: I reversed the order of the two paragraphs quoted above
