This blogger, JusPasenThru, is a physician with interesting insights into politics and culture, many derived from his patient care encounters. Since I spend half my professional day working closely with physicians, I often find myself intrigued by their view of the world. In this post, JusPasenThru writes about the patriotism of his immigrant patients. Enjoy.
