Brady Augustine's Watchmen edition of Health Wonk Review, up at MedicaidFrontPage, ties the current fortnight's health wonkery to the characters of a limited-edition comic book series about to be released as a movie. The HealthBlawger's post on PHRs is linked to Ozymandias:
I don't know comic books (or graphic novels), but I do know Shelley's sonnet, Ozymandias, which is about a colossal statue of Ramesses II (and the transience of vainglorious humanity, like all good sonnets not written about love)…. I saw a lot of colossal statues of Ramesses II on a trip through Egypt a long time ago, including my favorites at Abu Simbel, but I never would have made a connection between him and PHRs before today. I guess I'll have to ponder the meaning of all that, and maybe write a sonnet about it.
The next edition of Health Wonk Review will be right here at HealthBlawg. Read some sonnets, watch some movies, do whatever you need to do prepare yourself, and send in your finest posts (iambic pentameter not required, but … surprise me). See you then if not before.
