The religious picture in this country is really special- equal parts Muslim, Christian, and traditional belief, patients from all these backgrounds walk in to the hospital for us to see, sometimes to very peculiar effect.
One pediatric physician, a Christian man with a Masai background, said that he was very impressed with the remarks made by the preacher at "the American singer's" funeral. I assumed he meant Jesse Jackson, who I think spoke at Michael Jackson's funeral? The doctor then asked me why Michael was buried without his brain. I explained that I didn't know anything about this. The doctor said that his friends were talking about it and that they didn't understand why Americans are buried without their brains. I told him that as far as I knew, most people meet their maker brains intact, but perhaps Jackson is an exception? Is his brain going to a museum or something?? Someone please comment. :)
