Funny how so many of us can remember him from our younger years yet can't remember who was before him or after him. I sure can't. He did good.

RIP, Dr Koop.

96 years old?  doingitright.jpg

He was the first guy I'd seen in authority take a seriously sober stand on STD's in the panic of the late 80's regarding AIDS. I remember hearing about his religious background and thought he was damned ballsy for promoting the concept 'if you're going to have sex anyway, be safer about it'. Which I clearly remember did not go over well at the time.

Also adding my personal [HERO] tag; I feel a certain statistical certainty he may have saved a few lives from my graduating class generation in those years.

Godspeed, Dr. Koop.

don't understand: Here we go!

The Surgeon General, Doctor Koop
S'posed to give you all the poop
But when he's with P.M.R.C.
The poop he's scoopin'
Amazes me

C-Span showed him, all dressed up
In his phoney Doctor God get-up
He looked in the camera and fixed his specs
'N gave a fascinating lecture
'Bout anal sex
ANAL SEX
ANAL SEX
ANAL SEX
ANAL SEX

He says it is not good for us
We just can't be promiscuous
He's just a doctor - he should know
It's the work of the Devil, so
Girls, don't blow!
DON'T BLOW
DON'T BLOW

Don't blow Jimmy, don't blow Bobby
Get yourself another hobby
(If Jesus practiced medicine
I'm sure he'd do it
Just like him)

Is Doctor Koop a man to trust?
It seems at least that Reagan must
(And Ron's a trusting sort of guy -
He trusts Ed Meese
I wonder why?)
I WONDER WHY
WONDER WHY

The A.M.A. has just got caught
For doin' stuff they shouldn't ought
All they do is lie and lie
Where's Doctor Koop?
He's standin' by

Surgeon General? What's the deal?
Is your epidemic real?
Are we leaving something out?
Something we can't talk about?
A little green monkey over there
Kills a million people?
That's not fair!
Did it really go that way?
Did you ask the C.I.A.?
Would they take you serious,
Or have THEY been
Promiscuous
Have THEY been Promiscuous
Have THEY been Promiscuous
Have THEY been Promiscuous

(He was ALWAYS on TV and in the newspaper. Why has the Surgeon General been muted? When was the last time you heard the SG speak or saw her on TV?)
Rest in Peace, Sir. You did well.

I think there was an incident where Clinton's SG said teens should be given condoms, or something. Ever since then the SG has been a nonentity.


That would be Joycelyn Elders, who dared point out that the drug war was bad for health. When she suggested teens could reduce their STD risk by jerking off, that was a firing.

The irony, of course, is that Clinton himself should have listened to her.

I could have sworn he died a couple of months ago.  Then I realized it was Bork.  Then I realized I was a weird-beardist.  I'm reporting for sensitivity training in the morning.

His tribute should be "The only member of the Reagan administration brave enough to say 'condom'."

FTFA: Koop maintained his personal opposition to abortion, however. After he left office, he told medical students it violated their Hippocratic oath.

Like many people, he cherry-picked dogma.

The oath also states that you should teach the healing arts without fee or covenant -- did he speak out about medical schools charging tuition? How about the arts should only be passed to males? Did he speak out about women in med school?

He also would pray at the bedside of pediatric patients. What sort of prayers are there for a god who created the universe but is torturing helpless kids with diseases and letting many die horrible deaths and put their families through mental torture?

I have a lot of admiration for him but the sky wizard logic in his brainwaves did a lot of damage.
 
2013-02-25 08:52:45 PM  
I see we've mentioned Dr. Coop's willingness to fight AIDS with methods the rest of Reagan's administration couldn't stand (heck, it wasn't like they were against a disease that killed gays, whores, and junkies).  He also wasn't willing to lie about the effects of abortion on formerly pregnant women, as much as Reagan insisted on it.

Hero tag is long overdue.

/also, Watt wasn't the worst.  Anne Gorsuch's (director of EPA) war on the EPA did more damage than the oh so diverse* Watt.
// how diverse was he?  Try a panel with "a black, a woman, two Jews and a cripple".

Mugato: Nothing against him but people who inhaled smoke into their lungs for 30 years needed to be told that it was bad for you?


There are people right here on Fark who will argue today that (pot) smoke is not bad for your lungs

I know that it wasn't he, but Joycelyn Elders, who was the surgeon general who promoted masturbation, but I'm going to rub one out in his honor anyway.

Oh, well played.

I wanna thank you all for a terrific thread.  Posting with you nice people has really helped me to forget that I was in the Viet Nam War.  Have a great night, I'm gonna go hump a fridge.

Well, from there it was either surgeon or serial killer.


Hey, it was, lemme do the math here, 1929. A lot of those kittehs would have ended up in people's stewpots regardless.

Rest in Peace, Sir. You did well.


Basically, the SG gets absolutely no money, no support, and very little power to do her job. Most of the power/money was taken by the Assistant Secretary of Health, who basically runs the SG these days.
Anything the SG says these days is eviscerated by politics, both external and internal (HHS). I'm pretty sure its the worst job in the world.

Hence why she is reduced to giving random speeches, and issuing 'well duh' health recommendations. At a bare minimum, the SG should be given her own budget and control of her own office.

I still remember his nomination, reading about his religious convictions, and just looking at him, and thinking "Oh boy, here we go". His reaction to the AIDS epidemic was astonishing to me at the time. Duty over personal gain, so unfortunately rare.
