The Ethicator for the PharmaVoice 100? You are too kind.

April 12th, 2011
PharmaVoice - 100 most inspiring people

I don't deserve it, but if you insist.

I have just gotten word that there is a movement afoot among you, my loyal following, to nominate a certain columnist to the PharmaVoice 100, PharmaVoice magazine’s annual list of the 100 most inspiring pharmaceutical industry leaders.  I am deeply, deeply humbled.

Now, there is something you must understand about my work as a bioethicist.  It’s not about the awards, not about the fame; it never was.  It’s about justice, it’s about service.  It’s about speaking truth to power, and maximizing  your ROI in the process.  It’s about being that lonely voice in the wilderness, a piercing laser of Truth trained squarely on the cornea of humanity:  Standing, like Patrick Henry at the barricades of Fort Sumter, shouting “Here I stand; I can do no other!”

Also, it is about bringing down that piece of shit book my brother Carl wrote.

So really, I don’t know if I deserve this award, but far be it from me to stand in the way of a spontaneous grassroots movement.  You can find the application form, as well as the nomination criteria, on the PharmaVoice website.  The deadline for nominations is midnight, May 1.  Also, in case you need it:

My name:  The Ethicator
My organization:  White Coat, Black Hat website
My title:  CEO and Proprietor (pro-bono)

God bless you all.

The Ethicator

    Panache? Innovation? Creative, out-of-the-box thinking? You’re the obvious choice. I’m filling out a nomination form — pronto!

    Will there be a spontaneous grassroots demonstration at PharmaVoice headquarters? If so, count me in!

    This is my chance to get in on the ground floor of something good. When you win a Nobel in a couple of years, can I tell everyone I was a first-adopter?

    Who else could they pick? You have no real competition. I’m proud to be part of the revolution. Thanks, Ethicator! You’re my inspiration!

    Every day of the year, I learn from your example. You have my vote, obviously. I may even stuff the ballot box.

    Is there any truth to the rumor that your interview with Carl is on the short list for a Pulitzer?

    I can’t believe they didn’t give you a Pulitzer. You were robbed. But who needs it anyway? Soon you’ll be in the PharmaVoice 100. That’s way better than a Pulitzer.

    Man, I thought you were a shoo-in for the 2011 Pfizer Fellowship in Bioethics. How in God’s name did they pass you over? Did someone make a pay-off? I hope the PharmaVoice team takes note of this unbelievable snub.
