F. Scott Fitzgerald
Electronic medical records are, in a lot of ways, I think the aspect of technology that is going to revolutionize the way we deliver care.

I'm at like 325 pairs right now, give or take. But I've given away about 200 pairs of sneakers. I'm not as big of a collector as I used to be, because I think the game just got weird. Everybody likes to collect now, so it's kind of corny. But I got the essentials.
