We speculate that the plan is to have clinics in the back of Walgreens with a more complete service (they already will give flu shots and other basics).  Combine this with the fact that many believe we're on the verge of the biomedical revolution, where health services suddenly become cheap and ubiquitous, and you may hear the phrase "I'm sick, I think I'll go down to Walgreen's to get checked out" in 10 years.

Oh wait, the stock is down how much since announcing we won't move our corporate HQ overseas?
