The linked article in the Washington Post raises an interesting question, namely, if it is appropriate for dark humor in a medical setting to possibly offset the difficulties inherent in dealing with the sick and infirm. The question may in fact be a little deeper, namely, if it is appropriate to enact myriad rules and regulations that may generally have a negative effect in the hopes of protecting a few instances where through unintended consequences, third parties are offended. I thought the article was thought-provoking and would love to hear what you think.
