More dangerous: Guns or Doctors? The debate rages on.

I must be on the right track with this blog. MedPageToday had a survey about whether gun control is a public health issue. Shockingly, the response was overwhelmingly "No". God bless us crazy doctors. We may save the world yet. Other than that bit of good news, the article and survey were so last week.
I had a really interesting talk with a fellow physician last night at dinner. We were discussing the possibility of starting some weekend work at his clinic. I realized well into the conversation, which got really deep and intense about a lot of the things this blog is about, just how nice it is sometimes to have professional colleagues. It sort of made me feel a little better - not so isolated and alone.
