My, oh my, what an infertile day:
Doctors around the United States are reporting a sharp increase in the number of vasectomies performed since the economy soured last year, with one noting that many of his clients are from the beleaguered financial industry.
Their best guess is that the trend is due both to a decreased desire to have children because of the expense involved, and an increased desire to get such medical procedures done before their jobs and health insurance disappear.
I note here for the record that I got mine just before the great Oklahoma oil bust of 1982.
