• Allan, good point. You are correctly identifying one of the challenges with providing brief excerpts. The actual note I received had a more nuanced position than I provided.

  • Like your article. Only one thing: Polypharmacy is a real problem but it also can be very dangerous to ‘stop’ all medications in some patients. One should seek a broader view on this topic so the public does not think that is the ‘way to go’. A more balanced approach is what is usually necessary.

  • And a very merry Christmas, Bill . Yours is something of ‘a lamp under a bushel’ during darkened times . You are contributing in a “thoughtful” manner .
    As for the new year, and leadership down the road; need all our political advocates be ‘progressive’ and if so, how will we differentiate in our electoral choice?
    Perhaps that will be discovered in 2016.
