The Theranos Story, ch. 30: 2016 was the awful year that was

click to enlargeTWTAwfulYTW for Theranos. This Editor, in her precocious childhood, was an admirer of the acerbically witty Tom Lehrer and the satirical album ‘That Was The Year That Was’. For our UK readers, he performed tunes such as ‘The Folk Song Army’ and ‘The Vatican Rag’ on the US version of the BBC’s ‘That Was the Week That Was’ (TWTWTW) and later on the BBC’s The Frost Report.

Certainly, this was quite the year that was for Theranos. While Mr Lehrer is long retired from both teaching math and performing, if he were still writing, he would likely be feasting on the Bottomless Well of material that ‘From $9 bn to $9’ Theranos and Elizabeth ‘Zero Net Worth’ Holmes have provided. Perhaps he would have adapted ‘Wernher von Braun‘ or ‘The Masochism Tango‘, this last dedicated to Walgreens and the investors, ‘heart in hand’ indeed. In any case, if you are seeking a tidy abstract of TWTAwfulYTW for Theranos, Engadget has it in its year-end roundup series. If it whets your appetite for more, feast on our brace of stories, with a few flashes of Wit Among The Ashes, here. Hat tip to AliveCor’s Dr Dave Albert.
