As Metallica rings in the background, one must ask the question, for whom does the bell toll? Screw one of our readers who constantly bitches and complains about the use of lyrics and metaphors on our blog. As James Hetfield of Metallica belts out;
For a hill men would kill, why? They do not know, stiffened wounds test their pride
Men of five still alive through the raging glow gone insane from the pain that they surely know
For whom the bell tolls, marches on....................
Well fellow bloggers, could this be the beginning of the end for POD's? As Hemingway wrote in his masterpiece "For Whom the Bell Tolls, the Scripps and Sharp's Hospital Systems have ordered the demolition of a bridge that links POD guerillas to the our own very existence? Contrary to some madman's insinuations, TSB's sense of duty clashes with those whom call out their free market principles only to contradict themselves when it comes to their own survival.
Today, it was announced at the Sharp's Hospital Systems that no longer, yes fellow bloggers, no longer will Sharp's allow anyone involved in a POD to do business with their hospitals. Just like Scripps the gauntlet has been laid down. In addition to laying out this mandate, the word on the Street is that Phygen is Persona Non Grata.
As for the Scripps and Sharps Hospital mandate, you know what Jim Morrision once said, "This is the End my Friend, Beautiful Friend."
