    Seems close but still off the mark for the conclusion, and would suggest the half as long calculated reading time (and generally more readable) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tuskegee_Syphilis_Study

    That elder dad got to ask for, and be denied, an available medical treatment. There was not a conspiracy to keep secret the existence of a medical treatment or procedure, or failing that, being given ineffectual placebos. So no, wasn’t “Tuskegee”ed.
