“Look at every path closely and deliberately, then ask ourselves this crucial question: Does this path have a heart? If it does, then the path is good. If it doesn't, it is of no use.” ~Carlos Castaneda

Did they ever get their news coverage of this situation aired? I'm not at all familiar with the whole thing. You don't have to answer any of this, you can just let your post hold as is. I was just inquiring.

It's unlikely they will change administration. That is a powerful adversary,(one try never to make) with their slew of lawyers, they were sure for some time, to dot all their I's and cross all their T's and confer, confer, confer to put something like that kind of bon voyage party together. It sounds like an awful situation.

Chrysalis:

i don't know all of the facts of the situation. i know he has provided a great service to the chidren of st. louis. he has changed the outlook of many of my spina bifida patients.

i can only state that i support him as fellow clinician who has seen what he has done to completely change the outlook of a whole population of patients. He made them feel more "normal".

he is a man of principle and character. he cares about his patients and colleagues. i was sad to see him treated the way he was. it makes us all worry that we could be treated the same way.

And indeed they can. (treat everyone in that manner.) There is something wrong when you see the good people being moved out. I've seen good, stand-up people wormed into resignation...in a different genre, none the less the hierarchy involved in these things seems to have the same feel to it.

We share something in common. Both are orthopods and both are very interested in the education we offer to the students and residents on our service.

Check out this post and let me know what your thoughts are.
