The other day, while being patted odown, I observed a “supervisor” demand that a diabetic patient wearing an insulin pump go through the x ray machine.

Cutting through the radiology department, I catch a glimpse of my reflection in the glass window outside the MRI unit. The man I see looks unfamiliar. He has piggy eyes, a pillow crease scar across his left cheek, and a jaunty case of bed head. The amazing thing about MTV is how I can hear a song on on 8 or on 9 on Sirius and instantly picture parts of the video for that song even if I haven seen it in decades. “Take on Me” half black and white cartoon, half live action. “Right Here Right Now” Berlin Wall tear down clips.
