Well, umm, I guess it depends on where you live.  Our Chirurgeon, who is
mundanely a physician (and who we stole from the Steppes! hah!) has decided
that she has seen enough sun damage and DOES stock sunscreen in her
first aid kit, and then makes a POINT of announcing in opening court
that she has it and please come see her if you are in need.

Now, did that stop me from getting sunburned at the last event I
autocratted?  Nope.  Cause I was busy and kept forgetting to go
get some and yes, had forgotten my own at home.  And she shook
her finger at me twice and that was it.
