On the B! (Market Place) page of today's Wall St. Journal, an item Titled:

    www.doctorsmedicnesdiseasesgalore.com

Opening paragrph :
"in the next big land rush on the Internet, the target market is a juicy
one: cyberchondriacs.  Famous medical centers, unknown online startups
and bif media companies are all jockeying to create Web sites where
cnsumers can find out about their health".  The article discuses
dr.koop.com, PlanetRx.com, Medscape.com, webmd.com, ahn.com,
medconsult.com. intelihealth.com, americasdoctor.com,thriveonlin.com,
onhealth.com, and I know all of us can add some, too.

Remind me of a joke I heard some time ago on Public Radio - something like
