business news in context, analysis with attitude

Thanks to everyone who sent emails about last Friday’s “you’re 50 and it is time to have the inevitable colonoscopy,” which was just the last in a series of “you’re 50 and we’re going to examine every crevice of your body” battery of tests. Oy.

The good news was that everything was, in the words of the doctor, “clean as a whistle.”

We tell you this because if you are of the age where your doctor is telling you to have a colonoscopy, you should have no hesitation. It’s no big deal…the hours leading up to it may be a little uncomfortable, but you’re virtually unconscious for the event itself…and there’s nothing like hearing from the doctor that you have a clean bill of health.

So don’t procrastinate. Do yourself and your family a favor.
