C. Everett Koop passed today. He was 97.
RIP oh man of the amazing beard.
Vale, Dr Koop. Be sure to tell the smokers, "I told you so".
At least he didn't die from smoking.
HE had VERY wise words almost 30 yrs ago when he was Surg. Gen.
He more-or-less said in regards to the health care mess... that there is no quick fix and it will
never happen in our lifetime.
RIP. He stood out a bit but in that role not a bad thing.
I am 41 years old, and he is the only Surgeon General I could recognize.
I always thought he was straight forward.
I always liked that.
He offended a lot of different quarters with the way he handled that. I just read the lyrics to an embarrassingly stupid Frank Zappa song he inspired. You do that, you run a high risk of getting this. 1 + 1 = 2. If you don't like it, sorry.
Remember him for his contributions to pediatric surgery. The dude had a nearly 100 year run. He left his mark.
Certainly the only Surgeon General that could inspire a thread on the TDPRI.
I don't know about. Joycelyn Elders lost her job for speaking out in favor of an activity near and dear to the hearts (and hands) of many -- no, let's face it, all -- TDPRI'ers.
Joycelyn Elders played a Tele????
Oh, please! Get your mind in the gutter!
Oops, forgot about her support of certain "aerobic activiities."
Before he was famously the Surgeon General, he was my mothers M.D. and delivered me into the world.
Dr Koop faced one of the worst health crisises bravely, boldly and with absolute care.
A devout man, he set aside his personal beliefs, and recommended what were the best options at that time.
The Associated Press wire service has an excellent story on him running currently.
RIP Doc, job well done.
+1, except i don't see him as setting aside his beliefs at all. I see him as acting on them regardless of their popularity. What he set aside was his prejudice.
That's pretty cool.
RIP, doc of docs.
