I guess it was a doctor's wife who was responsible for the following remarks, printed in the Alton Telegraph's Sound Off section on April 5. But I'm not sure it was a doctor's wife; it may have been a doctor's mistress or just a really big fan. Here's what she said:
This is in response to the statement that "good doctors don't get sued," because they do get sued. The reason is they are not gods and make mistakes at times. Let him that is without sin cast the first stone. Attorneys would have you believe all of the medical profession are idiots. This only shows the attorneys' lack of respect for people's intelligence. As long as there is greed, there will be people the attorneys can play to and worsen the situation with inflammatory remarks.
Please allow me to summarize. If your doctor happens to amputate your left leg, when it was the right leg that had to go: Well, he is only human. He is not a god. He makes mistakes at times. Ask yourself: "Are you prepared to cast the first stone?"
