CUDDY, YOU'VE GOT SOME 'SPLAINING TO DO: In decidedly unshocking news, a study in the Journal of Medical Ethics indicates that the doctors of Seattle Grace and Princeton Plainsboro hospitals are maybe not conducting themselves ideally. In particularly unshocking news, especially given that the show analyzed Season 2 of Grey's, with the Denny and the LVAD wire plotline, the writers saw 58 incidents of "sexual misconduct" there.

    I'd be interested to see a comparison to a given year of ER and St. Elsewhere. And then to a season of MASH.

    I can't watch an episode of "House" without counting the malpractice-worthy incidents.  "Perhaps he has lymphoma, Dr. House?"  "Good idea.  Take out his spleen and find out."

    I guess it's a good thing that I don't have a medical or law background, so I can enjoy these shows for their entertainment value.

    (Have someone call a Ready-Mix truck a cement truck, though, and hooboy do I get fiesty. Or refer to cement when they mean concrete. Look people, cement is to concrete what flour is to cake... it's only an ingredient.)

    Is it me or does 58 seem kinda considering this was season 2, which included denny, mcvet and an atypically high amount of sex in on-call rooms (even by grey's standards)
