Robin Cook's "Coma":

This was a novel-turned-movie about a hospital that put people into comas, and in turn sold their body parts on the black market. There was a scene in the book where the story's hero female doctor (pictured above) bought a tuna fish sandwich from a vending machine. Is that nasty or what???
The author was a man, but until I did the image search for this post just now, I assumed the author was a woman.

He is also a Doctor and writes a lot of suspenseful books. I have read most of them. I love his books.

Ann: I've only read Coma, so I wouldn't know..

Noe: It was a pretty good book. The movie was basically exactly the same. I believe Tom sellek was the first victim, in the movie.

C and Mom: A person could die from vending tuna... in the book it described the sandwich as soggy bread and wilted lettuce....

I believe those were the days when hospitals had smoking rooms. And doctors had liquor cabinets in their offices... ah the good old days.

joe, thank you SO much for your kind and eye opening words on my post about taylor swift. you opened my eyes when you said.."she [mom] ruined the first half of my life, dont let her ruin the second half"

you are a sweetheart and your honesty is allowing me to look at things in a different light.
thank you for that.
and you are SO right about letting it go.

take care, friend....

Go to Netflix and rent the movie.
Like the dreadful "Myra Breckinridge," you will be surprised who was getting their start in movies like this one.

Saw it in a "Drive-in" with "Demon Seed."

Now THAT is a movie you should blog about. Machine mates with a woman to come alive!
