The Atlantic's Ford Vox (himself a brain injury physician) is horrified to learn that many doctors in Wisconsin have conspired with public school teachers to defraud taxpayers by writing fake sick excuses.

Physicians were seen standing on a street corner wearing lab coats and giving out medical notes.
