No More Goodies?

Instead, we'll just bring our truck and park it in your lot:

After all, it's all about education.

I see the same thing at my hospital. Hilarious. The hospital probably charges thousands.

Perhaps the doctor should charge drug compannies to park their car in their lots. Have the payment funneled through your separate real estate business account.

Brilliant plan Happy.

The only reason Big Pharma is giving up the pens is because they've found amore effective way to sell their products. This is not cynicism on my part, it's just good business on their part.

Our job is not to let their business run our business.

I fear we are losing.
