I’m not a big believer in the “berwyn health department”. I think it is rather a self-righteous excuse. It is a self-deprecating way of saying you have done your part to maintain your health, but you should also pay attention to your personal life in order to be healthy.
In berwyn health department we see a series of attempts to help the people who live in the town of Berwyn. The first attempt was by the health department to help the woman who’s been run over by a truck. The health department gave her some sort of healing potion and her pain was gone. This was followed by the health department giving the man who had had his arm cut off a bowl of food.
What is funny about this, as the man was the one who first showed up to get the food, is that he had the bowl of food in his house, but nobody else in his house had ever seen it. Then they all go out and start eating. It’s a little ridiculous, but it’s not completely absurd. It’s just that a few people out of the town might have had the bowl of food in their homes.
Its really not that absurd, but its certainly more of an issue than it would be if he had never given anyone food. This is because, if they would have eaten the food in his house, someone else would have seen it. That means that someone, somewhere, could have noticed that he had food inside his house, but chose to give it to the guy who was hungry and didn’t care about his health.
The issue of eating in the house is actually a really good example of the importance of privacy to privacy. Not just privacy from being seen, but privacy from being noticed. If someone really wanted to know where you were, they would have had to dig up a tree and find it out. But if that someone was not looking for you, it would be hard for them to find your house.
That’s because the privacy issues of houses are really a different question from the ones we typically discuss about personal privacy. There are many instances of people having their privacy invaded, but not by the government or the police. For instance, a few years ago I got some really bad news about a colleague I had worked with for several years. She had recently been diagnosed with breast cancer and was being treated at a hospital nearby. When I found out, I was in shock.
The first thing that I did was run into the doctor to find out what was going on. I explained that I had to go and see her, but she didn’t seem to understand what I was saying. She asked me what I wanted her to do for me, and I was happy to say I was going to go to the privacy department. So I got a call from the privacy department telling me that I had to take a test at the hospital.
Like most people, I was extremely relieved when I realized that the hospital was not only a private facility, but that it was not equipped to perform such a test. It was a good sign that the nurse who answered the phone told me that I would be able to see the doctor, nurse, and specialist without the need to have to go to the lab or doctor’s office.
If you are going to have a medical test done, the best place to do it is in a private room. You don’t need a lab. And if you do the test in a public facility, you’ll be stuck waiting in the privacy department and wondering if your test was even good enough to be done.
Yes, it was a good sign that the nurse I spoke to was not the one I was expecting, but it was not the reason I had to wait outside the medical building for a test. I will be going off to Boston to do my final physical exams tomorrow. I guess I thought they would be done before I got there, but I am sure that means a lot to me.
